This course aims to help students inhabit a biblical-theological vision for life in the marketplace. It will locate an understanding of ministry in the marketplace within the wider context of God’s mission, and the mission and ministry of the church in the world. In particular, it will help students (1) discover that business and human enterprise is not only a platform for expanding the kingdom of God but is part of that kingdom coming; (2) develop a theological foundation for Christian service in the marketplace, especially a theology of work; (3) get equipped for present or future ministry in the marketplace; and (4) be empowered for the transformational nature of work and its significant part in the church’s mission in the world today
