Whether in small, large or outsourcing companies, Christian women and men are responding to the need to spark social change, meet economic needs and represent Christ through sustainable enterprises.
Tyndale Leadership Centre's program in Business as Mission prepares people who have a passion for business and feel called into missions to target a niche market, build a business plan, and act.
- Lead through change
- Navigate doing business in other cultures
- Build dynamic teams
- Develop a biblical perspective on business and its role in God’s work
For too long, there has been a “sacred/secular” divide that causes people in business, law, education, government and other marketplace professions to feel that their work was somehow second rate. This is an unbiblical view of work that limits our Kingdom impact in a vital mission field: the workplace.
There is a third path that integrates them both. It’s called Business as Mission and its growth worldwide has been enormous. “Business” is used in the broadest possible context. From Galtronics Inc. in Israel to Ugly Mug Coffee in the United States, the number of mission-oriented enterprises is exploding.
