Business as Mission Case Study from Latvia
"Business as Mission" is a relatively new term, even though the thinking about business and mission can be seen throughout church history. In this paper I explore some of the definitions used to describe the concept of business as mission and then by using the qualitative research method I look at one business entity in Latvia and whether or not this business can be considered as mission. Through the research I find that SIA Skandinavs could qualify as business as mission, as the owners believe that doing business is their calling from God, and their vision is to bless others in Latvia and beyond. I also find that some of the definitions use criteria that only have a “holy” or “spiritual” dimension, which is too narrow.
