About Course

Most of Jesus’ ministry, and those who followed him took place outside of synagogues. They made the ‘marketplace’ the focal point of their ministry because more people were found out there.

The Marketplace Ministry course is designed to equip students to be effective servant leaders especially outside the four walls of the church. Students are taught to use their profession, training, combined with the Marketplace Ministry biblical foundation and faith-work knowledge to become a force for the Kingdom, seeing the marketplace (jobs) as their parish and their business as a pulpit.

What Will You Learn?

  • Students will develop the attitude of being full-time ministers in the workplace, taking it as their own garden of divine placement as in the days of Adam and Eve.

Lecture 5: HR: Valuing People as God Does

Lecture 6: Facing Workplace Ethics, Letting Your Light Shine

Lecture 7: Building Bridges: Action Planning for Kingdom Business
Over the years there has been created "conflict walls" between Christians and leaders in the workplace. God has called you to be a “bridge builder” by first tearing down those walls and building bridges between church leaders and leaders from the marketplace, so that together we all have the potential to reach our communities for Christ.

Lecture 8: The Kingdom, the Church, and the Marketplace
As long as we believe that the Church was born inside four walls, we will always need four walls to have church. When the Church is confined to a building, then the city and the marketplace become enemies.
