The primary goal of God's People Ministry, Inc. (GPM) is to undergird Georgia Christian Business Network's (GCBN) vision to Put God Back in Business (www.gcbnetwork.com). Elizabeth B. Copeland is the founder of God’s People Ministry, Inc. We provide financial support to other local ministries that have synergy with our mission. We equip business owners and professionals, all who have been called to be His light in their industry, with tools needed for success and "how to" practically walk out their Faith in the workplace, exemplifying the relevancy of God's Holy Word. Furthermore, we empower entrepreneurs and business professionals through sponsoring networking meetings, special events, seminars, workshops, relative to Financial Literacy, Business Acumen, Leadership Development, Marketplace Ministry, etc. We challenge and encourage each to remain focused; to work their unique God-given vision and witness through their faith walk.
Through seminars, speaking and teaching engagements, Beth encourages Believers to exemplify standard-setting godly behavior in their workplaces, and view their workplace as a plentiful harvest: their non-believing coworkers as scattered sheep with no shepherd and themselves as compassionate laborers of His harvest. Believers in the workforce are equipped with valuable tools and resources necessary for effective witnessing on-the-job, utilizing the practical applications of God’s Word – the Fruit of the Spirit.
Furthermore, Beth facilitates Biblical learning on leadership development and strong emphasis on women’s concerns. Her writings include titles such as God’s People: Setting the Standard in the Workplace; How to Lead People – without losing your mind; The Profile of a Woman of Strength; and Wings for the Workplace.
The Fruit of the Spirit – God’s Holy Word – is a Believer’s key to experiencing success God’s way in the marketplace. Having worked in corporate America for over 25 years, Beth applied the principles outlined in this book and experienced success God’s way. The positions held by Beth varied from collector, credit & collections manager, customer service and billing manager, team developer and trainer, and Human Resources manager.
