Pastoral leadership expands outreach to markeplace missions.

International (MNN)–Global Advance Ministries’ Jonathon Shibley says they’ve expanded outreach into a strategy called ‘marketplace missions’.

This idea will allow the church to work in areas closed to the Gospel. GAM tested the program in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo, to enthusiastic response. “We want to bring Christian business leaders from the West, CEO’s and executives that have a heart for God and a heart for missions to go and equip and teach biblical worldview and Christian principles related to business to Christian business leaders in developing nations.”

Over 230 Congolese Christian Business Leaders and Entreprenurs attended the Business Conference sponsored by Global Advance.

Biblically based teaching and encouragement covered a variety of topics including finances, management, biblical problem solving, giving, integrity, and developing-world entrepreneurship.

Shibley says the Congo program was so successful, they’re ready to launch another in Central Asia. “We have another pilot next month in Almaty, Kazakhstan where we’re expecting about one thousand pastoral leaders and then alongside that conference, through the pastors, we’re inviting about 300 business men and women from various churches throughout Almaty to participate.”
