Release of Paper: BAM and the Church

On Saturday, May 6, I left for a one-month trip to East Africa, starting in Kenya, and from there going to Tanzania, Ethiopia, and Burundi.  There will be a good number of exciting meetings and trainings during these visits.  I thank God for the opportunity to meet the amazing teams that are growing and maturing in each place!

In other exciting news, a paper that we started writing as a global consortium of BAM Global has finally been released!  We started the process of writing this paper in April of 2021, completed our portion of the writing by June 2022, and since then it has been undergoing edits and revisions. 

It is very exciting to see it come out now and we hope and pray that it will be read by many who are looking for the role that the global church can play in the growing Business as Mission (BAM) movement.  

The paper can be downloaded here:  BAM and the Church – BAM Global.

We divided the paper into three key segments to discern the opportunities and challenges in the relationship between BAM and the Church, and in each area, we addressed a way forward.  The first section explored dealt with the theological challenges, the second section explored structural challenges in the local church, and the third section explored cultural challenges.  We also shared stories and testimonies of churches who have embraced BAM and the impact that is being had on the church itself.

We invite you to read this and share it with others as well.  And let us know your thoughts!  We would love to hear how this resonates with you!
