Marketplace Revolution

"Your business can be your ministry, and your work can be worship." That's the motto at Partners Worldwide, a network of people called to business and passionate about ending poverty.

Join them in Chattanooga, Tennessee, this June 6-7 for the 2013 Marketplace Revolution U.S. National Conference,  where the primary audience will be business and professional people concerned about job creation anywhere in the 50 United States. The secondary audience: People called to business and transformation in their workplace or across the globe.

This is a great opportunity to connect with peers, engage a replicable model for job creation in communities of high unemployment—that you can take back to your own city—and learn about partnerships that are transformational for all involved.

When kingdom-minded businesses partner with like-minded ministries, the expression "it's just business" takes on a whole new meaning. To get an idea of how this works, read "Beyond Profit," a PRISM feature by Al Tizon, Ron Sider, John Perkins, and Wayne Gordon. There's lots of food for thought in this piece, and the companion stories flesh out partnerships in Memphis, Chicago, Camden, and beyond US borders.
