PROGRAM INTEGRATING BUSINESS AND FAITH: "God has gifted some with the resources of mind and spirit to be businessmen and women. Business as mission seeks to support and encourage those who are gifted by God in this way. It aims to stimulate interest in, and commitment to, doing business as unto the Lord. Its desire is to assist business people to see the opportunities that exist, to use their skills and talents to bless those in the poorest and most needy parts of the world, and to provide in those contexts credible opportunities to demonstrate and proclaim Christ."-Harry Goodhew

Hey guys!

Thankful for all you do to release folks to be the church in the marketplace. How important are those other 6 and 1/2 days of the week!

Anyway - i have a friend who is definitely living the business as mission heartbeat out in his company just publish a book about some of the principles he leads and lives with. I thought it might be a good one to pass on to others in the network. I can send you a free copy of it if you want or you can buy it on amazon. Either way - could be worth the read and a little blog review for folks.

Kris' story is great. Book is called SHINE_5 empowering principles for a rewarding life. Subtitle was the publishers. The book really hits on a story and a heart that is kindred with transformation through the marketplace.

Let me know what you think. You can email me at info@westpointchurch.org
