Seattle Pacific leading Business Track at Urbana 2012

Whether it’s on Main Street, on Wall Street, or in a market on another continent, business is changing the world.

In an age of increasing urbanization, few parts of the world could flourish without goods and services fueled by business and economic growth. Unfortunately, in recent years we’ve seen ethical lapses and market failures that have wreaked havoc on communities at home and across the world. Public trust has been eroded and the imagination for what business can be has been seriously marred.

But what if business were to be understood as a source of blessing and healing for the nations? What if business were recognized as a creative force, an ethical steward and partner, and a life-giving institution for the benefit of others?

The CIB-hosted Business Track at Urbana 12 will explore the idea of business as stewardship in both North America and internationally — enabling people to serve across cultures. Real-world examples of businesses demonstrating value creation will act as a model for what business can and should be.

From microenterprise to family-owned businesses, venture capital to large global corporations, this track is for anyone interested in exploring the role of business in Gods’ greater economy, and in bringing economic, social, and spiritual vitality to people around the world.

Urbana 2012 -- InterVarsity's 23rd Student Missions Conference will be held December 27-31, 2012, in St. Louis, Missouri. Watch the CIB Event page for more details.
