Academy is anchored by its two large-format events, Kickoff and Capstone, with weekly module sessions (shorter live virtual events where leading practitioners share frameworks, lessons, and advice) in between. For 2021, all events will be held virtually.
Over the course of the program, Participants will learn from 30+ leading practitioners. Additionally, those in the Industry and Venture add-on tracks will meet a half-dozen mentors with deep expertise in relevant topic areas. They will interact in a curated small-group setting and receive individual 1:1 mentoring.
Participants also benefit from the community they build in their weekly Action Groups—curated small groups led by Alumni of the program. They encourage and challenge one another, provide feedback on ideas, and open up networks for future opportunities.
At the Capstone Event, Participants will put the finishing touches on their personal playbook: a plan for how their practices and decision-making will move toward the redemptive edge in their career or venture.

One invaluable way that Praxis has impacted me is the rich language that filled my imagination. These new ideas helped to articulate and fill in the gaps that existed deep in my soul. The precious wisdom I gained from expert speakers, the vulnerable conversations I had with my action group, and the new relationships I built there will be a sacred memory for me.

As a young leader taking over a generational family business, Praxis has played a transformational role in equipping me to pursue redemptive entrepreneurship within an established company. I truly consider many of my peers and mentors in this community to be lifetime friends.

2019 Academy, Emerging Founder program
I'm honestly awed that the Redemptive Frame exists. Ethical entrepreneurship already seemed a lofty goal, and I almost tricked myself into thinking I was a good person for convincing my business partner to pursue it with me, when Praxis came into my life quite suddenly. It really is going to be a lifelong exercise, and I'm thankful God showed me how to fully integrate the spiritual into work.

I'm grateful for my Praxis experiences because they've given me language and a community to enrich my understanding of how ventures can play a redemptive part in the world. I've been empowered to explore ways I can contribute to this work.
2017 Academy, Emerging Founder program
I was thrilled to have several leaders in our business attend Academy 2020. Their experience has exceeded my wildest expectations. It has led to rich internal dialogue, and provided them the framework to think more rigorously and creatively about how our business practices might be more redemptive.

I learned how it is not always enough to be ethical but can be necessary to go as far as sacrifice to participate in the work of God. I will now look for situations to practice sacrifice so that we all win.
