WILMORE, KY --(Marketwired - March 24, 2016) - Asbury Theological Seminary co-hosts The Asbury Project (TAP) on the Florida-Dunnam Campus, April 19-20, 2016, with Asbury University. The Asbury Project is sponsored by the Office of Faith, Work and Economics and unites students, pastors, business and community leaders, and academicians to discuss the interaction of faith, work, economics and the marketplace.

During TAP Orlando, speakers discuss ways to move from an "idea" to a business start-up, transforming your ordinary work day into an extraordinary calling, and how to use business to make a positive social impact in your community.

Keynote speakers and presenters include:

  • Christopher Brooks -- Senior Pastor of Evangel Ministries, Detroit, Mich.
  • Romal Tune -- Founder of Faith for Change, Los Angeles, Calif.
  • Dr. George Cope -- Director of Church Ministries, Vision Orlando, Orlando, Fla.
  • Phil Hissom -- Founder & Executive Director, The Polis Institute, Orlando, Fla.
  • Jane Hursh -- Co-founder, 306 Foundation and Owner of Jane's Short and Sweet, Orlando, Fla.
  • Dr. Samuel C. Certo -- Steinmetz Professor of Management, Rollins College Graduate School of Business, Winter Park, Fla.
  • Yanet Herrero -- President/CEO, Kingdom Service Solutions, Orlando, Fla.

As part of the conference students are invited to enter the Student Business Plan Competition. This competition allows students to introduce a business plan that solves a social problem, makes a profit, and inspires innovative transformation in the world. Student entrants will have opportunities to be mentored by Asbury Seminary or Asbury University faculty and local business professionals before making their business pitches to a live audience. The competition awards a total of $10,000 in prizes for students to use to launch their businesses.

Asbury Theological Seminary was founded in 1923 by H.C. Morrison with a class of three students and an audacious seal that said, "The whole Bible for the whole world." Its mission is to prepare theologically educated, sanctified, Spirit-filled men and women to evangelize and to spread scriptural holiness throughout the world. Almost 100 years later, the Seminary has more than 10,000 graduates serving in every time zone around the world through social justice initiatives, government, art, mission organizations, education and the church.
