Business as Mission Global

Entrepreneurs see and create opportunities. How can this talent be used to benefit society and build Gods Kingdom in innovative and holistic ways?

In 2016 the Dutch Business as Mission (BAM) book was released in the Netherlands. Now I’m working on a global book together with co-author Mats Tunehag (an international authority on BAM). I’ve interviewed people from all over the world.

Globally BAM is a growing movement. In the book you will read the stories of business folks, church and mission leaders who are on a ‘BAM journey’ in developing nations, and also in a Western secularised context. The stories will be alternated with theory: the BAM concept, as well as paradigm shifts re mission, church and aid.
