|Informing Mission Strategies Through A Theology of Work||
The purpose of this dissertation is to illuminate a growing global need for business as a context for mission and propose a model of business that holds promise for building sustainable spiritual movements. The premise is that God's biblical mandate is to take the gospel to all the nations. In this generation, however, those countries that are least-reached with the gospel tend to be those countries that are most closed to traditional missionaries and are becoming increasingly more stringent in their visa requirements. Furthermore, even countries previously open to Christian missionaries have closed their borders to religious activity (or what is perceived as religious activity) following the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks and the global war on terror. Into such a context of international fear and suspicion this generation of ministers finds itself thrown. God's historic mandate remains immutable, but the means to fulfilling it must adapt to this new global environment. Business as context for mission may be one tool to help fulfill the Great Commission and build God's all-nation Kingdom mosaic.
