Hard work pays but knowledge wins
I am humbled by the grace of God to let you know that yesterday, I successfully defended my research paper to the University of Lilongwe, thereby putting the final stamp of requirement for my degree in Business Administration (BBA).
The title of my RESEARCH is: An Assessment of the Utilization of Business Enterprise Management Models in Pentecostal Churches in Malawi.
I focused mainly on two things:
1) To assess the extent to which Pentecostal ministries are utilizing the principles and practices of Business Management models especially the Planning model in Malawi in comparison to other successful church ministries.
2) To explore church leadership views on the utilization of the Planning Model in the management of church ministry.
Despite this research being academic in nature, I believe it can and will be utilized by those struggling with business growth, whether in religious circles or any other fields.
I must say it was challenging doing this research as it was done during difficult circumstances. Nevertheless, I thank God that it was done. I also recognize the great supervision from my supervisors and all those who motivated this journey.
I believe that education is the premise of progress in every society and in every family and an investment in knowledge always pays the highest interest. Let this encourage you that no matter what you are passing through, pursue knowledge.
