Missional Business Forum 2020
As economic crisis looms in the wake of a pandemic and the missions landscape rapidly changing, there is massive opportunity to reach and serve the urban communities through entreprenuership in these times of great need. There is now a call to Christian business leaders to develop entrepreneurship to participate and uplift cities in Asia as a missional response to God’s calling.
Join us in this year’s SCGM Missional Business Forum as we help you rethink our Singaporean fear of risk-taking, and appreciating business enterprises as an important strategy in urban missions today!
THURS 19 NOVEMBER 2020
