Holistic Transformation via Business as Mission (BAM)

  • Jim Jackson

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to give the reader a picture of how the Business as Mission movement is creating Gospel movement opportunities.  What are the ingredients we have been discovering for the Business as Mission movement?



  • A holistic Gospel in word, deed and power (Matthew 9.35)

  • A partnership based approach to ministry (Philippians 1.5)

  • A simple tool like Entrepreneurial Leadership Training

  • A microloan program to kick start new businesses

  • A local leadership team to own the vision

  • A Train the Trainer approach for indigenous expansion (2 Timothy 2.2)


We are discovering the essentials to expand the kingdom of God by empowering local leaders with a tool that is contextualized and meets practical human needs via business development in Malawi, India, and other nations.


Key words: Business, mission, transformation, entrepreneurial, leadership
