(1) Business is first because business, not government, is the hub of societal development. Business is the economic generator which funds all other aspects of society. The responsibility of government is to ensure a free-market environment which stimulates profit and healthy business expansion, and expands ever higher rates of employment. Third-step business leaders accept responsibility as caretakers of the communities in which they operate using their influence and portions of profit to initiate and direct-fund beneficial community, state, and national actions.
(2) Public education. Public school classroom educators have more opportunity to influence lives than any other profession. American society will not be transformed apart from healthy public school systems led by third-step teachers, administrators, and school board members. Healthy public school systems must partner in a variety of ways with business.
(3) Political activity. Societal transformation must include political activity by third-step leaders including direct and intentional engagement with current office holders, candidate solicitation and support, and personal candidacy for offices which create, influence, and interpret public policy...school boards, city councils, county offices, state legislators, elected and appointed judges, congress, senate, and white house.
(4) The role of ministry in this model is to produce and encourage more third-steppers for roles in business, education, and political activity...to introduce men and women to Christ as to influence and guide their growth in the relationship. That work requires third-step ministers who grasp the transformation model and who are mentoring third-step leaders.
