Faithventure Forum

What’s the best way to describe BAM? Well, here’s what it’s not:
  • Tentmaking – Missions trips in which missionaries fund the ministry through setting up a temporary enterprise, that’s Business For Ministry
  • Philanthropy – Foundational giving, charitable donations, or tithes and offerings from those who work in the “secular” environment, that’s Business With Ministry
  • Business As Ministry – An enterprise which operates for the purpose of producing both monetary and ethical gain, informed by a theological framework.
