God's Wisdom for Business
Business done well has the power to shape the world
and bring glory to God
“The twenty-first century is destined to be the century of global business. More than any other institution, business is likely to shape the face of the world–for Christians interested in advancing God’s agenda of peace, justice, and reconciliation, a focus on business and its role in society is critical” (Jeff Van Duzer, Why Business Matters to God).
God could have placed Adam and Eve in the midst of a highly developed world with roads, bridges, buildings, technology, and everything needed for modern life as we know it. Instead, He put us to work as stewards, developers, and co-creators with Himself.
Business plays a vital role in fulfilling God’s plan for His creation, allowing life on earth to flourish in manifold ways. God’s first command to humankind encompassed developing creation’s resources into useful products and services—which assumes an economic system that allows for goods and services to be exchanged for something of value.
If you lead a business, a division or a team, we want to help you grow a business that prospers and glorifies God. We do that in three ways.

Growing a Business that Glorifies God
Growing a Business that Glorifies God will explore both the importance of business in God’s kingdom economy and how He intends business to be practiced for His glory.
Business leaders and professionals will gain a template to help them identify, define, and explore six significant opportunities God has given them to glorify Him.
While this course focuses on business leaders, Christians in all kinds of work and at every level of authority in an organization can use this template to consider ways to glorify God and exert significant influence.
This template can help you assess and challenge any organization, team, or division to move toward continuous improvement in God’s eyes and bless the local and global community.
