TheForge is a monthly membership community for entrepreneurs who want to show up well, lead their people in God’s Truth, and don’t want to do it alone.
What if you had a space to grow, ask questions, and walk out your faith with confidence?
Which CRM should I use?
How does my faith intersect with my brand?
How do I choose my website host?
What type of content should I share?”
How do I find my first clients?
Do I need to trademark?
Who should I hire first?
When do I outsource?
How do I file my business license?
What’s my brand story?
How much can I talk about my personal life?
How do I make my logo?
These questions plague most Christian business owners. Maybe they plague you too!
But you don’t have to do this alone. There are Kingdom-Entrepreneurs out there, just waiting for you to jump into our community!
When we first started our design agency in 2011, we had no support. The first thing we invested in was a coaching community and it changed everything for us.
It showed us that our dreams were possible.
That we could trust God’s timing.
Our conclusion? Kingdom-Community changes everything.
You need people who run their business from a Kingdom-perspective. That’s what theForge was created out.
TheForge is a space to dive in, work hard, build or scale your business, and get the support you need from people who get you, trust Jesus, and fight the good fight of faith in all areas –including entrepreneurship.
The online gurus tell you,
“find your audience!”
“hustle until you get results!”
“manifest the life of your dreams!”
”cut out the people who bring you down!”
”positive vibes only!”
”trust the universe!”
And frankly, you’re just tired of it.
YOU NEED PEOPLE WHO GET YOU - AND TELL YOU THE TRUTH.
But, you ask “Where do I FIND those people?!”
First, let’s talk about something.
Business is JUST PLAIN HARD alone.
It’s hard to have an idea that nobody gets.
It’s hard to follow God’s call when it feels ridiculous and counter-culture.
It’s hard to put something out there you created that FLOPS.
It’s hard to discern the best option when you have a plethora of choices.
It’s hard to wonder what the heck you’re doing wrong and why you aren’t seeing the result you want.
You wish you had a community to bounce ideas off and a network to exchange with - exchange ideas, drafts, services, and sales.
But you just can’t find them. We get it. We’ve been there.
And it’s time that changes for you.
The internet has provided an excellent opportunity for building scalable businesses, but in the process many of us have become isolated.
We find comfort in our similarities as Christians and business owners, and also seek diversity so that our ideas are challenged and so that we grow.
ARE YOU READY TO DIVE INTO MESHING YOUR CALLING AND YOUR CAREER WITH US?
Why the forge?
The word “forge” has several definitions:
It's a place of refining.
It's a place where weapons are formed.
It's a person who creates a new path.
It's someone who imitates another.
It's an action that shows a new way.
And we believe these things are all crucial things to cultivate when we consider becoming the leaders in our spaces.
WE COACH USING THE WISDOM OF THE BIBLE AND THE HOLY SPIRIT AT WORK WITHIN EACH OF US. WHEN WE TAP INTO THIS POWER, WE SEE THAT LIFE ISN’T MEANT TO BE DONE ALONE.
We believe that we are supposed to succeed together
We believe that the process of growth requires iteration
We believe that we are designed to adventure
We believe in taking action excellently on the callings God’s entrusted to us
YOU HAVE THE CHANCE TO BECOME UNHINDERED, UNASHAMED, AND UNDAUNTED –BUT YOU AREN’T MEANT TO DO THIS ALONE. WE WERE MADE TO BE IN COMMUNITY.

— JENA, STRATEGIST
“I joined theForge as I was transitioning to something new in my business. It gave me a safe space to test out new ideas, and a supportive community where we explored how faith impacts our businesses. Because of this group, I was able to really connect my faith calling to what I do in business, and it has made all the difference in my motivation and productivity.”

Meet us, your hosts!
In our own story, the ability to leave the traditional workplace and build something from home solved so many problems, but accidentally created the problem of isolation.
We’ve worked from home together for 3 years now and have seen God move in mighty ways throughout our business and life since.
God’s allowed us to walk this out and He’s given us an amazing network of people to do it with. We want you to have that too!
We’ve got two kids (Fletcher and Ella) and we live in Northwestern Wyoming. We’ve got California blood in our veins, but the West has stolen our hearts and given us a place to call home. On any given day, you’ll find us on nap-drives to Yellowstone, watching Star Trek in our jammies, or hanging out at our other business, the Cody Escape Room!
We’re serial entrepreneurs and always looking for the next thing to dive into!
Back in 2015, we saw a giant hole in the online space for a community of Christ-followers. That’s why we’ve built a strategic, functional, easy-to-use, welcoming place to come be, grow, and rest outside of the normal veins of a noisy internet.
