Business skills are some of the best ways to serve and empower the poorest of the poor and to have a platform for relationships and sharing the gospel.  Also, in developed countries it's an important part of the marketplace that can best be engaged through business and leadership initiatives.  

Recent grads who have an interest or background in business and entrepreneurship are needed to join small businesses that are creating employment opportunites or NGOs that are seeking to give the poor a hand up.  Basic business instruction and training can empower many individuals to provide for their own families, which then leads to transformed communities. The benefits that come from gainful employment include increased self worth, better health and education for families, stronger families and communities, more local stability and peace and stronger local institutions, including churches.  A holistic ministry approach is created when initiatives like this work in conjunction with spiritual outreach, education, health and justice.

As we greet people on the street, visit them in their homes, and sit with them in cafes, we can see it in their faces. The people of this 99% Muslim country situated on the Mediterranean are looking for hope. Some seek it in Western materialism and entertainment while others look to religious legalism...but an increasing number are seeking the path of Jesus. The time is ripe to see a movement of disciples turning to the Savior. Our team works in a vibrant urban coastal area where there are only a handful of known believers and few churches.
