Entrepreneurial process has been done by many Churches for the social purpose. But, in reality the process leads to the business purposes. Only a small part of Churches has declared that his entrepreneurial processes are for business purpose, mostly use the word diakonia (social services) for the process. The Churches still in the struggle to establish a Christian paradigm of entrepreneurship. Until now, they have not found a Christian pattern/model of entrepreneurship. Therefore, this study aimed to find a model of Christian entrepreneurship.
