Join our team as we come alongside partners making a difference! During the trip, we serve over 500 people through Bible teaching, leadership training, women’s ministries, children’s outreach, young adult ministry, and compassion opportunities.

Business as Mission
Myanmar and Kenya

Business As Mission releases the power of business to transform people, communities, and nations for the glory of God. Teams work with a local missions organization to train potential entrepreneurs from local churches on how to develop, run, and maintain a successful business. At the end of the training, microloans are provided to enable the start or expansion of small businesses. Trips occur in both the fall and spring in three phases, a new team traveling for each phase.
