As global economic become increasingly interconnected, Christians in business have unanticipated opportunities to build the kingdom through strategic business ventures.

Business as Mission is a movement with enormous potential. This handbook breaks new ground in how faith and work interact and it is lived out in cross-cultural contexts, where job creation and community go hand-in-hand. Come participate in what may well be one of the most strategic mission paradigms of the 21st Century.
