Marketplace Missions in India plans for multiple harvests.

By March 6, 2007

India
(MNN) — Global Advance's Marketplace Missions emphasis is sparking new
Kingdom-minded business leaders in the Hyderabad
and Vishak regions of India.  Marketplace conferences brought hundreds of
Christian businesspeople together who don't have many avenues to connect with
others Godly leaders in business. Their goal: to
strategically align pastors and Christian business leaders in developing
nations for the cause of Christ in their nations.

It's a new way of looking at
national business leaders as catalysts for the Great Commission.  The strategy has been so successful in this
region, that Global Advance is now planning a multiple-year strategy for
equipping business leaders in Hyderabad and
Visak, as well as other major hubs in India. 

One
tool used in the Marketplace Missions track is the Global Advance Business
Institute.  It's a series of high-level
business seminars focusing on the areas of Marketing, Strategic Management,
Financial Management, Human Resources, and Internet Technology.

Global
Advance has obtained the rights to a curriculum developed by top MBA professors
to utilize for these seminars.  The first series of Business Institute
seminars will be conducted in Douala,
Cameroon,
beginning in March of 2007. Teaching teams that go to Douala for the Institute will have full
access to the curriculum which includes powerpoint presentations, teaching
notes, and student workbooks.

In addition, the team has
already sown seeds for new 'Kingdom Business Associations' to be established in
each city.  These will serve as a
networking forum for ideas, ministry, discipleship and encouragement.

In addition, these networks
will provide global connections with other Christian business leaders, as well
as possible business opportunities and strategies.

Pray for upcoming Global
Advance conferences.  Aside from Cameroon, there are fourteen other conferences
planned through the end of March in the nations of Thailand,
Siberia, Liberia,Colombia, Tanzania,
China, India, Peru,
Pakistan, and Congo.
