Thomas had an encounter with God in 2014, repented and surrendered his live to Jesus Christ.
“I am motivated by seeing people meet God and want more people in business and in leadership positions surrender radically and become open with their faith and give God glory”
This will mean revival all the way down in organizations, urban communities, territories and entire nations.
When we live in the flesh we look up to people. When the people we look to open to the truth and let themselves be guided by the spirit, others will become curious and interested. Some will be saved, and others will be provoked. It is a truth, but we want to build up the truth of God because it is only the true who sets people free and transforming people from within regardless of our circumstances. Our hearts must be transformed, and we must come back to our creator. Our character must resemble Jesus. We must strive to look like him and everything else will work out. This applies to all aspects of life. In business, there is no difference.
Thomas Vernholm is a visionary and serial entrepreneur with a strong sales and marketing background. Thomas is born and raised in Denmark and has more than two decades of personal experience in sales, marketing, media planning, brand strategy and public relations. Today he focuses on property and city developments in Canada, Portugal, Spain, Cape Verde and Australia. Thomas is the co-owner of ”Empowering Millions” that are life-transforming business events based on biblical principles. Empowering Millions is the first business platform of this kind in Europe that joins business and faith in delivering high-quality business conferences, mentoring programs and a media platform for entrepreneurs, business professionals and leaders with the mission to achieve greatness for a greater purpose. The purpose of the platform and leadership summit is to empower leaders, business owners, community representatives and change makers worldwide who can walk beside others in their journey toward their greatest potential and a Spirit-filled life of purpose that will enable them to leave a spiritual legacy that will have a great impact on the world at large. He is also co-owner of the global entrepreneurial “International M-Powerment Network – (IMN),” that are going to open with chapters in Portugal and in Tanzania.
God never fails and he does not start now so for those leaders who dare to stand by their faith there are blessings in store because nothing is too great or too small for God. We must also think big. After Thomas had left his sales career in Copenhagen to attend Bible School in 2015, many business opportunities arose the following years, that took him to Portugal, it was clear to Thomas that what he wanted was to put people together and help establish a stable foundation and build “on the rock” and not “on sand.” Thomas knew that whatever he was going to work with in the future, had to be based on God’s solid foundation and together with his partner in life and in business, Helena, the initiating steps to what is today Empowering Millions was taken by them together (Mat 7:24-27).
Building on faith, hope, wisdom and mutual love is immensely powerful. It’s all about building faith, opening up ideas, business opportunities, and where everything is focused on Jesus Christ. We cannot build without a foundation and he is the cornerstone. God’s spirit transforms hearts. “For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.” (Romans 10:10)
We cannot build without a solid, sound foundation or make money and convey it without proper character. We will build on Christ who is our sure foundation. The heart is the seat of our motives. Exodus 35:21 says that “anyone who felt in his heart,” contributed to the tabernacle.
Thomas enjoys spending time in Portugal, USA, Africa, Scandinavia and other parts of the world where he is responsible for his international business network operations and is involved in several developments. Thomas loves networking, experiencing new cultures, connecting with people and most of all to share with people the gospel and to inspire people to think about what type of life Jesus Christ really wants them to have, a more abundant life lived in freedom where people are set free, empowered and are living in victory. Thomas has been married to Helena Vernholm for 11 years and they, have lived together in Sweden, Denmark and they live today mainly in Algarve, Portugal.
Thomas is the Co-founder, COO and the Chairman of Empowering Millions Ltd.
