Christian Family Business Association
The vision of the CFBA is to assist and train Christian families to take dominion through the market place, teaching business and success principles to our young people, and linking Christians with true Christian businesses. How can we teach our children when we rise up and when we walk in the way and when we lie down if we are spending so much of that time away from them making a living? How can we integrate family and business? These are some of the questions we will be exploring. Whether you are already a business owner, or would like to be a full time or part time business owner for supplemental income, or would like your children to be, we believe the CFBA can be an important link for you.
The vision of CFBA originated in the Denver metro area, and was to start taking dominion of the city for Christ thru apprenticing 200 families to own and operate their own family business. The CFBA offers a long term voluntary 2- 5 year apprentice program to disciple families who will then be trained to mentor other families in business, success and Godly principles of money management. We are looking for families who would like to join us in this endeavor either as sponsor families, or families desiring mentorship and fellowship in building a family business of their own. With the CFBA team of experienced business owners, there are many, many ideas of part time and full time businesses that your family can learn and be apprenticed in.
Mentors and Apprentices- Please apply through the AME registration process and then contact Dale Schamel, the Director of the CFBA, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Blessed Creek Farm
Combining the study of four interrelated disciplines: Architecture, Agriculture, Construction, and Mechanics, BLESSED CREEK FARM’s AME program works through the four seasons of a sustainable family farm. Located on the high plains of northeast Colorado, the farm is about a 1.5 hour drive from Denver, and 2.5 hours from Fort Collins or Colorado Springs.
The year long program, comprised of four 8 week long semesters is led by Cary McMinn, Registered Architect, Master of Business Administration – Finance, retired college professor (25 years at the Art Institute of Colorado, Industrial Design and Interior Design programs) assisted by his adult son, Zane McMinn, himself a homeschool graduate who recently completed his own 4 year apprenticeship/mentorship/entrepreneurship program at BCF. The program is 2 days a week – Mondays and Tuesdays, so participants can pursue their other school or work endeavors the remaining days of the week. Participants need to arrive Monday morning by 8am, and may depart Tuesday evening between 5-7pm. As an alternative, they can arrive Sunday evening (carpool from the Castle Rock area is available) and leave Wednesday morning (carpool to the Elizabeth area is available). Interested applicants NOT from Colorado’s front range, should email Cary McMinn to discuss a different scenario.
The young men involved with the program live life with the McMinn family, working together through specific projects and farm chores, enjoying meals and evening leisure time as well. Participants learn valuable work skills in the four disciplines, as well as life skills required to lead a family, particularly in a rural farm setting.
Young men age 16 and up are encouraged to apply for this exciting and enjoyable opportunity to grow in the Lord, learn valuable skills, and live a disciplined yet very rewarding lifestyle that will contribute to their future success. Cost per semester is $1,000; $4,000 for the full year program. This fee includes tuition, room, and board. Payments should be made on the AME website. Scholarships and payment plans may be available by contacting AME@CHEC.org Questions? Email Cary McMinn, RA, MBA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
