Proverbs 1:2; 4:5-7; 2:6,10 and 3:13-15  



The mission of the International School of Entrepreneurship & Leadership Development (iSELD) is to increase the capacity of entrepreneurs, enterprise leaders and their teams, including 501c3 corporations, in every pillar of society to serve people, communities and nations more effectively. SELD equips business and ministry leaders with spiritual, cultural and organizational development solutions through a unique design thinking approach. A signature resource is the Kingdom Business Development© strategy, which is delivered in a 1Year-Residency, engaging a cross-cultural cohort of leaders from around the world in-class and through virtual classrooms.  KBD ignites the co-creation of innovative new products, professional and social services for existing and emerging markets catering to real needs of world citizens who earn less than $4 per day!


Our focus is equipping fellow joint-heirs from every nationality who are “called” to an assignment as Christ hands and feet in the marketplace of commerce.  Likewise, we strategically shepherd leaders in increasing their spiritual maturity and organizational capacity with effective infrastructure and management systems. The integration of proven divine wisdom tools, principles and practices maximizes potential and yields results of lasting fruit. Fruit is visible in the increased quality of life of world citizens and influence applied in increasing profitability toward job creation and poverty eradication! For the thousands of existing and emerging leaders around the globe JHMs' SELD is a primary source for capacity building, development tools, leadership and management training, technical assistance, coaching, consulting and alignment with additional Kingdom minded resources. These resources are an "offering" through a unique international ecosystem  in support of innovative economic development and sufficiency for all people globally.


We promote a multi-intercultural and inter-generational learning environment where every people group and persons gifts, talents, skills and uniqueness are embraced, nurtured and honored for the advancement of humanity.  Interpreters and translation for every program and course is available in most languages by request.
