There is a seismic shift in American culture, the church now finds itself in increasing irrelevance in its “come to us” posture. The Church is invited to break down the sacred/secular divide by creating sustainable missional faith-communities while providing services and relational connection to local neighborhoods. This is where Mission and the Market can converge in context.
As early Trappists Monks in the 1600’s created enterprises to fund their sacred calling, so today’s marketplace planters and pioneers will artistically find ways to start businesses that contribute social good and while gaining favor in the civic structures of a particular place.
We recently hosted a webinar with Hugh Halter full of insight into some of the mechanics of starting a business for mission. This was an inspiring time around the possibilities.
We are also thrilled that Hugh will be leading our Market Place Planting cohort this fall. Click below for more details.
