Resources for building redemptive ventures.

The Praxis Playbooks are print and digital resources that offer our take on how to do redemptive work in the entrepreneurial environment.

REDEMPTIVE IS

Creative restoration through sacrifice.

All redemptive work is love in action: making new things that make things right, for others first.

We use the Redemptive Frame to assess, build, lead, and fund entrepreneurial organizations for greater redemptive impact.

Through Praxis, I’ve met the most thoughtful, humble, and smart people who are changing the world every day. They challenge me greatly with their example of quietly seeking God’s purposes first, giving sacrificially to their communities, and flipping the script on how success is defined. Praxis is special because of its people and our shared values, and it’s a huge source of encouragement to me in my own faith journey and work.

Finding the Praxis community felt like arriving home to the long lost family I never knew I had. This creative culture of redemptive entrepreneurship and sacrificial leadership resonated with my deepest reasons for being in business, making a difference, and living a life of meaningful impact.

Over several years of growing our business and family, we've been deeply formed by the way this community seeks to be redemptive and imaginative—not only dreaming but creating models and practical frameworks for doing—in all areas of life. Especially during times of challenge, like 2020, Praxis has been a place we turn for wisdom and encouragement.

To walk into a room at a Praxis gathering and feel known and loved by a group of individuals all striving in the same direction is a pretty profound thing in today's world of often transactional relationships and conference banter. The community, centered in the humble pursuit of joining God in His redemptive work in the world, is simply unique and extraordinary.
