Our  Story

During a Sunday service in 2018, Pastor Bill felt led to ask if there were any current Entrepreneurs--or those who want to be an Entrepreneur--in the congregation. To his surprise, about 50 percent of those in attendance raised their hand. Pastor Bill called upon a member, Rob Kopp, to pray over them. “At this time, The Lord spoke to me and said it was my responsibility to raise up ethical Christian business owners and to have them serve as a resource to one another.” 

This Sunday encounter drove Pastor Bill to form a steering committee who would join him to take this calling and turn it into a viable ministry and outreach. Pastor Bill combined forces with Chaz Freutel (Executive Director), Rob Kopp (Treasurer), and Doug Freutel (Secretary) to launch NOBLE Foundation Group as a 501c3 in August of 2021. NOBLE (Network Of Business Leaders and Entrepreneurs) serves aspiring Owners, Business Leaders and Entrepreneurs who want to start, launch and grow their enterprises and develop into dynamic Christian Business Owners & Leaders. 


At the helm of Noble, stand visionary leaders whose entrepreneurial spirit is not only guided by business acumen but also by a profound commitment to values rooted in faith and community. As owners, business leaders, and entrepreneurs, they embody a unique fusion of corporate expertise and spiritual conviction. Committed to integrating the principles of the Kingdom of God into their enterprises, they envision businesses as instruments for positive change and transformation. Their dedication extends beyond profit margins, as they actively seek to empower local ministries in supporting and uplifting their communities. With a steadfast belief in the power of collaboration and compassion, the founders of Noble are not just shaping industries; they are cultivating a legacy of purpose-driven leadership that echoes their profound commitment to both business excellence and social impact.
