Surprising Business in the Story of Mission

Session date: Wednesday 5th August 2015 Session time: 11:45 am - 12:45 pm Session location: LT9 Session track ,

Exploring the hard questions about business in mission contexts. Hard questions.  Is doing business just a pretend way to gain access to inaccessible places?  Is this not a distraction to the ‘real work’?  What if the business fails?  Or, if the business is successful, where does the money go?  Is doing business ‘here’ any different to doing business ‘there’?  How do we cope with fast moving, quick thinking entrepreneurs who may not fit easily into church or traditional mission…….?  ‘But, God….’  It seems that God thinks differently than us (Is. 55v8).  This seminar discovers surprising ways in which He is using people in business and could use you, too.
