IBAM Explore 3 week
Introduction to Business as Mission (IBAM) Explore is a three week course that lays a strong foundation for future business as mission involvement. We believe that success in business as mission is greatly enabled by strong foundations in a number of areas, including: cross-cultural understanding, personal character development, spiritual maturity, personal management skills and yes – sound business skills!
The teaching in weeks one and two focuses on the Biblical basis of business, core business topics and business as mission in practice. The field trip in week three brings BAM principles to life through real-life cases. We aim to build on both understanding and practical skills through a wide variety of learning processes. IBAM offers great classroom teaching, however we do not stop there… We want to encourage whole-person development, through a broad range of processes: discussion, workshops, group coaching, one-on-one coaching, business visits and a 5 day field-trip to learn from live examples of business as mission.
IBAM Impact 3 day
We also run shorter seminars and a IBAM Impact 3-day intensive conference in the USA each September.
Leading practitioners in the business as mission movement will deliver three days of dynamic teaching and discussion on current trends and issues both here and around the world.
In addition, your participation will give many opportunities to network with a growing community of BAM professionals through round-table discussions, personal reflection times, small group discussion, and time with practitioners who can help you take your next steps in business as mission. All with an aim to help you develop a clearer vision and strategy for your own call to business.
IBAM Course and Conference testimonies:
“IBAM has really been a gift from God to us. We got many of the necessary tools for starting a business as mission company in Uruguay. Not only did we get the foundations we needed, we were also practically equipped in the basics of starting a business from zero.” — IBAM participant
“A spectacular overview of the Biblical mandate, the need, and the opportunities for BAM both at home and abroad.” — IBAM participant
“Outstanding sessions from some of the leading BAM minds.” — IBAM participant
