What Is Business As Missions
Business is a God-given power and potential for good in the world. Yet too often Christian business people have not been affirmed in their call to be intentional in their professions for the Lord. We want to walk alongside businessmen and women as they get a better understanding of God’s redemptive work through business in the world. We want to help change the message that Christian business people are hearing and mobilise them for action.
What if the untapped business resources in the church globally were released for missional impact? What if more Christian business people were world leaders at tackling global evils through business?
Business As Missions can mean different things. First, it can mean starting a business as a means of gaining access to a country lacking religious freedom. Secondly, “Gospel Funding” can mean starting a business and giving money to any organization or individual that is working to further the Gospel. Although these may be the most common ways to facilitate funding the spread of the Gospel, they are by no means the only ways to support missions.
BAM can simply be defined as profitable and sustainable businesses; intentional about the Kingdom of God purposes and the impact on people and nations; focused on holistic transformation and the multiple bottom lines of economic, social, environmental, and spiritual outcomes; concerned about the world’s poorest and least evangelized peoples
