Description: B4T refers to businesses located among unreached people groups with the express goals of being profitable, scalable and bringing holistic, Christ-like transformation to communities. This is a double bottom line approach—profit and transformation—that integrates all aspects of business. It is ALL ABOUT the Gospel AND legitimate, profitable business.

Sessions will include topics like:

1.    Business for Transformation Overview

2.    Where and what are the business opportunities among the Least Reached Peoples?

3.    How can my church send a Business for Transformation missionary into the mission field?

4.   Business models: what’s working and what isn’t

5. Inspiring examples of missional business in the world today
