The Global Think Tank on Business as Mission will open up an unprecedented opportunity for networking and collaboration for those involved in business as mission around the world. This is the second ‘think tank’ of its kind, the first taking place under the umbrella of the Lausanne Forum in 2004.
This new Business as Mission Think Tank is working in collaboration with both the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) and The Lausanne Movement, as well as partnering with many other companies, organizations and networks. Building on the work that has gone before, the Think Tank will provide a unique opportunity to assess the Business as Mission movement and to go deeper into BAM practice.
Groups will be collaborating in regional clusters, in many different languages and will be focusing on at least 16 different business as mission topics and issues. This work will culminate with the Global Congress on Business as Mission, April 25-28, 2013, a unique opportunity for networking and sharing outcomes.
"There is a wind of the Spirit blowing across the world through Christian business leaders and entrepreneurs. Followers of Jesus who lead both large and small enterprises are committed to living out Kingdom values throughout their business strategy. The 2nd Global BAM Think Tank is going to be a significant gathering of like-minded followers of Jesus who are focused on Kingdom impact. I would urge you to participate in this important event", said Dr. Geoff Tunnicliffe, Secretary General of the WEA.
One year, one goal: To invigorate the business mission movement for its vital involvement in God’s mission to the world.
