Business as Mission
Business as mission is a fairly new concept that is growing rapidly. During this session, Dr. John Mulford will help you get a clear understanding of what business as mission is and is not, and how the 21st century missions environment is suited to business as missions. You will learn how it works on the ground, how it can relate to and complement traditional missions, and how it ministers the whole Gospel to the whole person. Through business as missions, spiritual needs, as well as economic and social needs are met. Dr. Mulford's enduring passion for economic development for the disadvantaged now coincides with the awakening of business people to opportunities for business as mission.
