I'm excited to be presenting a workshop on Business as Mission with Rudy Carrasco of Partner's Worldwide this Thursday, October 22nd at 3pm at the Christian Community Development Association conference in Cincinnati, Ohio. If you're in the area, come learn about this growing movement of entrepreneurial followers of Christ. Here's the details from the conference brochure:
The Business as Mission movement is growing around the world. Also known as “business as ministry” and “business as a calling,” this movement is an Issue at the 2010 Lausanne Congress in Cape Town. This CCDA BAM workshop will provide an introduction to business as mission (BAM 101) and include presentations of a domestic model (Belay Enterprises) and an international model (Partners Worldwide).
The workshop will be co-led by James Reiner and Rudy Carrasco. Reiner is the executive director of Belay Enterprises in Denver, Colo. Carrasco is a CCDA Advisory Board member, served for 19 years at Harambee Christian Family Center in Pasadena, Calif., and is currently an associate director at Partners Worldwide in Grand Rapids, MI.
