BAM & Mission Agencies Consultation

PURPOSE

To invigorate the BAM movement globally by equipping mission agencies from all continents with BAM fruitful practices and greater connections.

BACKGROUND

From 2012-2013 the BAM Global Think Tank and Congress held ‘Working Groups’ on various BAM topics – producing BAM Global Reports. The topic of BAM and Mission Agencies was not a full Working Group, but a smaller discussion took place that produced a short Special Report on BAM and Mission Agencies.

In 2019 a full Working Group focused on the topic of “BAM & Mission Agencies” was launched. This Working Group worked to identify the major opportunities and challenges facing agencies as they do BAM. A BAM Global Report on BAM and Mission Agencies, with best practices, resources, lessons learned and common solutions to effectively engaging in business as mission will be published in May 2024 on the Reports page.

OBJECTIVES

  • Discover and document major areas of opportunity and challenges that mission agency leaders/personnel have experienced with BAM strategies.
  • Investigate the BAM experiences of mission agencies by geographic region.
  • Identify lessons learned and fruitful practices around a number of key topics for agencies engaging in BAM.
  • Document case studies that highlight issues and learnings by topic and region.
  • Provide forums and networking opportunities for agencies, both within regions and internationally.
  • Open up a dialogue between mission agency leaders and business leaders exploring the experience of partnership so far, and future opportunities for collaboration.
  • Make recommendations for future activities and action by mission agencies.
  • Make recommendations on areas for collaboration between mission agencies and the church, academia and the Christian business community.
