COMMUNITIES WE ENGAGE

PREMIER, INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS-TRAINING AND CONSULTING BUILT ON KINGDOM BUSINESS STANDARDS
Faith Leaders

FAITH LEADERS

We support faith leaders who desire to maximize the discipling efforts of their congregations within the work week, and are already located inside the marketplace. This is commonly a dark area of society, and often somewhere where these ministers cannot access themselves. KIBIR Consultants provides Biblically-based business training for church leaders to engage with the marketplace leaders within their congregations both spiritually and technically.

Young Entrepreneurs

young entrepreneurs

We guide, empower and mentor young entrepreneurs who are either interested in starting an impact business or using their professional roles to grow the Kingdom of God. The difficulty of standing against the flow of corruption already integrated into the marketplace system is difficult, and we believe you shouldn’t “go it alone.”  KIBIR Consultants also supports young entrepreneurs with long-term investments and consulting relationships within the business community.

"Having KIBIR Consultants speak to a group of Christian business leaders at my office encouraged me to see all of my work as God’s business and they created a setting for us seek each other's help and foster accountability to this end."

Abba Travel, CEO
"Working for the Kingdom of God is KIBIR’s focus. Recently KIBIR Consultants provided a 4 session training for our headquarter's employees to consider how the workplace is our means to glorify God. This training was so helpful in changing the attitudes of our people and has helped us engage more into our jobs knowing that it is Kingdom work."
FREWOIN DANIEL
SIM Ethiopia, Human Resources & Personnel Administrator
"KIBIR Consultants is right on target! Their focus on bringing sound Biblical principles to business leaders is amazing...bridging the gap between following Christ and living for him in the workplace. They are demonstrating God’s principals are the right formula for both business and personal success!"

Our Why

Why Does KIBIR Exist?

KIBIR Consultants desires to see restoration of the Ethiopian marketplace. As of 2017 Transparency International has Ethiopia’s Corruption Perceptions Index rank at 107 out of 180 countries. We want to set the standard of what Biblically-based business looks like in Ethiopia, influencing the entire nation to move its perceived corruption level into the top 10 least-corrupt markets in the world by 2038.
