Flourishing Through Work+Place Ministries (VIDEO)

By Tom Mills, Mar 7, 2023

Through MTW’s Work+Place ministries, staff and volunteers host business workshops to teach lay people—most from local churches—how to start and run their own business so that they can make a profit and become self-sustaining. As a result, they become living examples of God’s plan for mankind. Participants are asked to think through and plan for how they can use their business for the sake of the gospel and to introduce their neighbors to Christ.

The trainings are helping people make a profit so they can be self-sustaining, get the food they need, and pay their children’s school fees and medical fees. Small businesses also enable some to become co-vocational pastors. Those who complete the training can show by their lives and businesses that they’re honest, that they’re capable, that they can sustain themselves, and that their families can flourish, which opens doors to the gospel.
