Empowering Filipino Christian Business Leaders Through Incorporating Biblical and Theological Concepts of Stewardship in their Corporate Social Responsibility
This study seeks to empower Filipino Christian business people by incorporating the biblical and theological concepts of stewardship in their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs. This study presents the context of ministry of transformational business in the Philippines. It surveys proposed solutions in the literature related to stewardship and corporate social responsibility, such as CSR, social entrepreneurship, business as (integral) mission, and a spirituality of business. It investigates and examines the theological and biblical foundations for stewardship. The study uses qualitative research methods to find out what Filipino Christian business owners and leaders think, believe, and practice regarding the concept of biblical stewardship as they apply it in business with focus on CSR.
A seminar-workshop on Integrating Biblical Stewardship in CSR was designed and conducted among the research interviewees and other business people. The aim of the seminar is to move key business leaders to a fuller and richer understanding of stewardship in the practice of CSR.
