BAM Global is the new name for the BAM Global Think Tank. The Think Tank was founded in 2011 to open up an unprecedented forum for discussion, collaboration and networking on business as mission, amongst practitioners and thought-leaders from around the world.
Business as Mission can provide a legitimate way for missionaries to access otherwise “closed” countries. Businesses also serve as excellent platforms to build relationships, provide jobs for the poor and oppressed, help bi-vocational pastors and church plants become self-sustainable, and spread the transformative power of the gospel in the communities in which they are formed.
Business as Mission (BAM) is a strategy for the specific purpose of the transformation of people and communities: spiritually, economically, environmentally and socially – for the glory of God through a viable and sustainable business which has Kingdom of God values, purpose, perspective, and impact.
