A few weeks ago we finished a Pioneer Business Planting consultation with 20 participants from or working in 8 different nations (Nepal, South Africa, Comoros, Mauritius, Malawi, Mozambique, India and The Netherlands). They will take business planting to start businesses, facilitate Pioneer Business Planting for others and coach them how to do it.
At creation, God commanded us to be fruitful, multiply and subdue the earth (Gen 1:26-28). Everything that has life, multiplies. That’s why we wanted to raise up more practitioners and facilitators of Pioneer Business Planting. So that we would be fruitful and have a bigger impact in the world.
During the 4 day consultation the participants learned how to use business to advance the spread of the gospel. We used games, stories, interactive and a discovery way of teaching and drew out experiences from the participants. A full blown Malawian/Dutch team led the consultation. It was an incredible time of learning together. During the coming 6 months we will coach the participants to implement the principles to where they are so that the neglected people will be reached.
So far already, consultations have been planted in India and South Sudan!
