Tangible ways to get involved! Use your Talents and Experience to Coach other Business Owners!

Earlier this week Doug Seebeck, Director of Partners WorldWide came by the office. If that ministry sounds familiar, its because Partners Worldwide's conferences have been featured on the business as mission site and in some emails over the past year.

I've always enjoyed connecting with Greg Elzinga and others on the staff over the phone, but there's nothing like getting a chance to meet for a few minutes face to face. It was refreshing to hear Doug's vision and more about the upcoming release of a new book, "My Business, My Mission - Fighting Poverty through Partnerships". The book captures some powerful stories of people's lives that have been transformed by investing time, talents and in some cases their treasure into the lives of businessmen and women overseas. Its already been endorsed by Bob Buford of Halftime and the Leadership Network along with Bill Hybels of Willow Creek. By the way, I'm going to try to read over the manuscript in the coming weeks and share some thoughts.
What I find especially exciting is that in a time when "on ramps" to getting involved in business as mission are hard to come by, they have readily available opportunities for seasoned businessmen and women to get involved. Maybe there's a group of people in your church that love business, love God and want to get off the sidelines. Here's a great chance to do just that. You can be partnered up with a business overseas and help offer some coaching over long distance or an occasional visit and help someone build a business in their area of the world.

Needless to say it was refreshing. Check them out at http://www.partnersworldwide.org/.
