I (Chris) own a publishing company and head up a nonprofit ministry. Between the both of these, we bring home far less than a typical family of our size (is a family our size ever typical?). We live comfortably and contently. I love the work that I do and, when I can, I incorporate the kids in the hustle bustle of it all. Here are explanations of each business:
1. Training Minds Ministry, an educational nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, hosts academic debate camps across the nation. Based off 1 Peter 1:13 “Train the mind for action,” the ministry’s purpose is to train young people how to think, speak and persuade (in that order). Click here for more information.
2. Monument Publishing is the publishing firm for the ministry (and also the taxable side of the work we do). We publish curriculum, textbooks, handbooks, DVDs and CDs, study helps, and other resources that help prepare the student to compete in academic speech and debate. The publishing company has also published family products like Wendy’s cookbooks and diet book. Click here for more information.
The Jeubs believe that basic business and entrepreneurial skills are fundamentals that every child should learn. The Jeub children all participate in some form or fashion in helping run the family business. They do much more than just stuff envelops or empty the trash. They are active parts in our family entrepreneurial ventures.
