The Business as Mission (BAM) Course 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 BAM Course
The BAM Course is a two week modular training that lays a strong foundation for future business as mission involvement. The teaching in Module 1 is very intensive and focuses on the biblical foundations for business, BAM core topics and a business start-up boot camp. Module 2 is a field trip to visit multiple business as mission companies, exposing you to BAM principles through real-life cases. The BAM Course gives both essential knowledge and practical skills through a wide variety of learning processes.
BAM Course 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.” — BAM participant
“A spectacular overview of the Biblical mandate, the need, and the opportunities for BAM both at home and abroad.” — BAM participant
“Outstanding sessions from some of the leading BAM minds.” — BAM participant
BAM Courses are hosted by the Business as Mission Resource Team in partnership with many other organisations, teachers and business coaches. IBAM participants come from a variety of backgrounds: some with business or professional experience, some from YWAM or other mission organisations and some with cross-cultural or development experience. Please contact us if you have questions about IBAM training opportunities.
