Entrepreneurial spirit is stated as: a mindset, an attitude and approach to thinking that actively seeks out change, rather than waiting to adapt to change. A mindset that embraces critical questioning, innovation, service and continuous improvement. Every entrepreneur who has ever tapped into their Entrepreneurial Spirit also has faith that is active. One of Robert Holden Ph.D. list of 10 Symptoms of Entrepreneurial Spirit reads, "An entrepreneur participates wholeheartedly in the miracle of creation and this is what helps them to grow."

Kenya University Project (KUP) entrepreneurial spirit grows through active faith. A KUP Entrepreneur can make their faith active by sharing with others the progress of their entrepreneurial role or supporting another. In so doing through faith and action the KUP entrepreneurial spirit flows and becomes a purpose.   

An entrepreneur can also have their faith be active by reading quotes of other entrepreneurs. “We now know a thousand ways not to build a light bulb,” Al Edison whose entrepreneurial spirit achieved the lighting bulb among his many inventions is quoted saying. An Entrepreneurial spirit quote from Edison that can inspire an entrepreneur in one where as entrepreneur visualizes Edison words as said to himself as an Entrepreneur and then say Edison words to himself or herself, “Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” 

An entrepreneur can also get their faith activated through a message of God delivered by God’s servant in a Church. “Faith is active,” Pastor Russ Hurst of Liberty Church preached on Sunday. The message preached rejuvenated the KUP Entrepreneurial spirit of KUP entrepreneurs in Worcester City, MA, who had gone to the church, with active faith. 

The pastor message of how faith is active came from the Bible Book of Luke 8: 40 – 56. This verses tell the story of Jarius, a synagogue leader, came and fell at Jesus’ feet, pleading with him to come to his house because his only daughter, a girl of about twelve, was dying. 

A second story of faith is told in the verses that as Jesus headed to the house a sick woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years but no one could heal her came behind Jesus and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped. 

Jesus stopped and asked, “Who touched me?” after some talk with Peter, a woman finally said she was the one and had been healed after touching Jesus cloth. Jesus said, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace.” 

The pastor preached that at this time Jarius could have been anxious wanting Jesus to move faster before his daughter died. The bible says that as Jesus was still speaking, someone came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue leader. “Your daughter is dead,” he said. “Don’t bother the teacher anymore.” Jesus hearing this said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.” Jesus would be taken to the girl and say “My child, get up!” and her spirit would return. 

The pastor referencing this faith showed that Jarius had the timeline he wanted Jesus to get to his house. But God’s timeline was not the same for a woman who was sick and had active faith needed to be healed. The pastor said even where one’s active faith does not get the result, one should keep their faith active for God is working.
