BAM Global is the new name for the BAM Global Think Tank. The Think Tank was founded in 2011 to open up an unprecedented forum for discussion, collaboration and networking on business as mission, amongst practitioners and thought-leaders from around the world, as a global initiative under the Lausanne Movement. The Think Tank brought together collaborative groups to look at current issues vital to the business as mission community. Other groups gathered in geographic regions and countries. The Think Tank initiative culminated in a BAM Global Congress in April 2013 and continues to publish reports from its working groups.
BAM Global will build on the work of the Think Tank, facilitating communication and cooperation in the business as mission community. BAM Global Think Tank working groups will continue to create a knowledge-base for the business as mission community.
In partnership with the Business as Mission Resource Team, BAM Global is building the Business as Mission website to be a one-stop shop for BAM resources. The BAM Review blog is regularly published from the website, providing fresh, topical content for the BAM community.
Our mission continues to be to enrich and invigorate the business as mission movement, resulting in a significant increase in the quantity and quality of businesses and business people involved in God’s mission to the world — the whole church, taking the whole gospel, to the whole world.
BAM Global continues as an extension of the BAM Issue Network of the Lausanne Movement, both endorsed and supported by Lausanne.
