ENGAGING & TRANSFORMING COMMUNITIES THROUGH SELF-SUSTAINING, MISSIONAL BUSINESS
Are you currently running a successful business? Are you a student with an entrepreneurial spirit? Do you desire to use your gifts and abilities to share God’s good news and see communities transformed spiritually, economically and socially? Missional businesses are self-sustaining companies that hire local people—often those outside of a relationship with Jesus—and establish relationships with them and their families. When employees are treated justly and with dignity and respect, they are better able to provide for their families and community life is improved. This opens the door for the gospel to be shared and local churches to be planted, making the business a catalyst for multiplying disciples in the community.
One of the greatest felt needs in our country is to have gainful employment so that people can take care of their families … Our business gives us an opportunity to be a small part of restoring hope and dignity to their lives by providing legitimate work in an environment where employees are valued and encouraged to develop their skills.
