On today's â€śCalling For Truthâ€ť Radio Program our guest will be Michael Baer, Author of the book â€śBusiness As Mission â€“ The Power of Business in the Kingdom of God.â€ť
In the book Mike catalogs four key characteristics of Kingdom Business â€“ namely that it is Vocational, Intentional, Relational and Operational.
Vocational â€“ That business is a good thing from God and can even be viewed as a high calling from God.
Intentional â€“ That a clear Kingdom Purpose should be defined
Relational â€“ Understanding the primacy of relationship, showing love in the workplace, valuing people as God does and modeling servant leadership
Operational â€“ Achieving True Excellence and doing it in an Ethical manner.
â€śWhile some Christian professionals dream of being â€śfreed from businessâ€ť to go into the ministry or see business as enemy territory to be invaded for Christ, others are convinced that Christian principles simply don't work in the â€śreal world.â€ť
In Business as Mission, Michael Baer challenges each of these positions. He rejects the unbiblical thinking that ministry and business are by definition separate activities â€“ that our lives can be compartmentalized into the sacred and secular.
Instead he guides business leaders in developing the vital characteristics of a kingdom business â€“ the kind of business that will free them to live fully integrated lives and lead organizations that significantly impact the worldâ€ť (excerpt from the book cover).
