This post is explicitly to enlist your help. As many of you know, I have been taking part in the Lausanne Global Business-as-Mission (BAM) Think Tank. We are at the point where we are developing strategies for mobilizing the North American Church to put forth a monumental campaign of witness to the glory of God through marketplace engagement.
A large part of this effort first requires connecting with and bringing local churches up to speed on how BAM can impact local communities and the world through local church pastor and lay leader involvement.
I need your help in two ways immediately and will be following up with more information and input requests as our strategizing moves forward. Please, PLEASE, do not miss this opportunity to release the power of the pew and the marketplace to reach the world for Christ. The marketplace is the most pervasive of all human institutions. Through the marketplace, our Christian influence can reach the un-evangelized and those disconnected from God at home and to the far reaches of the earth.
Right now, I need to raise $3,000 to complete the incorporation process of Eden’s Bridge as a not-for-profit and to pay for the trip to attend the Lausanne BAM Think Tank Congress in Thailand next April. Please pray about supporting this effort as we can effectively address both the material and spiritual needs of the world in ways never imagined in even the most generous and prolific missions outreaches in history.
Now is the time to move, in this decisive moment of global social upheaval and change. People need to see the glory of God lived out in their communities, local churches, and especially as it cares for their children’s future. Business pays for everything in this world. Taxes on business and income from wages pays for governance which includes education, infrastructure, research and development. Business pays for healthcare and all of the world’s charitable giving. All these efforts promote social and economic well-being. God’s heart, since the creation of the Garden of Eden, has always been to bless His creation with an abundance. Business has the potential to bring that abundance to the poor in our day as we act in the name of God and give Him the glory!
As we enter the season of Thanksgiving for God’s plenteous provision and the joyous celebration of the Advent of our Christ, please join me in this effort to be a blessing “unto all nations.” Or every donation of $50.00 or more, I will gladly send a copy of my book, Eden’s Bridge: The Marketplace in Creation and Mission.
God bless you.
