Description

u00a0

This is a conference designed for new entrepreneurs wanting to apply their faith to a start up business; or seasoned entrepreneurs wanting to experiment by applying their faith in existing businesses. Exploring business as a possible expression of God's inventive, risk-taking character, this conference will offer a Christian critique of current business practice and of social enterprises. Using research findings, case studies and current experimentation at Regent College, presenters will generate a dialogue between current practices and new and creative ways to apply the Christian faith in a business context. Since true knowing is more than head knowledge, facilitated breakout groups will engage participants in the design of Christian social enterprises. Participants will also devise methods of testing their designs, and those who wish will be given an opportunity to compete for the title of "Best Test Demonstrator," the winner of which will partner with the Marketplace Institute of Regent College to further develop their design's operation and evaluation. Lectures include:

  • Business in the Image of God and What's Wrong With Business as Usual - Rikk Watts and Paul Williams
  • Social Enterprise is Not Enough - Michael Hodson/Panel
  • Learning from Theory and Practice - Paul Stevens
  • Learning from Case Studies - Hugo Ciro, David Holcomb, and Doug Makaroff
  • Panel Questions and Answers
  • Design, Moving from Reflection to Practice - Mark Mayhew
  • Presentation of Projects, Summary, and Next Steps - Mark Mayhew, Paul Williams, and Panel
