As I travel around, teach in various colleges, and conduct seminars, I am often asked if I know of opportunities for getting involved in the BAM movement overseas with a job opportunity. It is a great question. There is nothing like seeing things first hand and being mentored by a BAM leader on site in their business.
BAM job and internship opportunities
Jo Plummer at Business as Mission does a great job with perhaps the best BAM website available today (http://businessasmission.com). She often posts job opportunities as well as internship opportunities. Over the last several months there have been job and internship opportunities with BAM companies in China, Nepal, Cambodia, Vietnam as well as other Southeast Asian countries and the Middle East. These companies needed software developers, website designers, IT account managers, operations managers and managing directors in a variety of industries. Visit this page on the Business as Mission website to see current BAM company openings around the world: http://businessasmission.com/category/job-opportunities/.
Another great way to connect with people in the Business as Mission movement is to invest the time and money to attend BAM conferences. Two important BAM conferences are coming up this fall:
- BAM Conference 2016 – Los Angeles, CA – September 16-17, 2016: Where BAM Practioners, Mentors and Seekers Come Together
- B4T Expo – Chicago, IL – October 13-15, 2016: Transforming Nations Through Business / Reaching the Unreached to Know and Love Jesus
IBEC will have representatives at both of these conferences so let me know ahead of time that you’re coming or find us at the conference. We’re always happy to connect with people exploring how their giftings and skills in business can be used for God’s kingdom.
