Did you know that doing good is good for business? Have you ever thought how your work and your business can help others not only with a product or service but to better their lives? Justice-minded businesses can not only make a tremendous impact on local, national, and international communities but also can grow and thrive in their marketplace calling. And, Christian business can be leaders in the justice movement in an important way. Join us for a discussion on Biblical Justice in the Marketplace and learn how Doing Good is Good for Business and for our world.
