REAL BUSINESS. REAL MISSION.

About the BAM Conference
The Business as Mission Conference has been serving business people, academics, students, mission agencies and churches for the past 8 years. We are motivated by the call to live for Christ and follow him in business. We have seen firsthand that companies can do incredible good, bringing spiritual, economic, social and environmental transformation to communities around the world. We understand the power of networking to inspire new initiatives for God’s glory and for his Kingdom. Come and join us this year!
Who should attend?
Academics & Students
The Business as Mission Conference is the largest BAM-focused event in the USA every year. ‘Business as Mission’ is our rallying cry, but we are part of a larger move of God calling his people to do Kingdom Business or Business for Transformation. We gather people together from many backgrounds and experiences to encourage them and enable them to take the next step in missional business. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to engage with others and explore more of what God is doing around the world through business.
All our speakers have one thing in common: real-world experience. They have seen first-hand how business can transform communities and peoples’ lives. We invite speakers from around the globe, from diverse backgrounds, to share from their life-changing experiences.
I came to learn about BAM, and was surprised by how great the networking was! Turned out to be the most valuable part of the conference, by far. I also really appreciated the millennial speaker – very real, challenging, and Christ-centered!
The 2017 BAM Conference expanded my understanding of how much – and how many different ways – Business as Mission is happening all over the world , as well as here in the U.S.
The BAM conference helps us realign our thinking and reminds us to keep Christ at the middle of everything whether in business or life.
Fantastic! The variety of speakers and topics and way the Holy Spirit and the team wove them together: BAM the good and bad, big and small, vision and reality, young and old, practical and academic. Plus great networking with new friends and catching up with long term friends. I am refreshed and encouraged! Thanks for all your hard work- it will bear the fruit of eternal friends!
Great conference. Absolutely loved it. Please keep the whova app active until the conference next year so that we can all connect with each other and help to form BAM businesses and communities. The app is the best. I flew half- way around the Globe to this conference and it was really worth it. Thanks organisers!
Thanks for a great conference! What impressed me most from the plenary speakers was their dynamic relationships with God in which they received timely guidance in their ventures and a joyful intimacy with their Father. Thanks for providing that inspiring example.
Last year’s BAM conference in LA significantly influenced and affirmed the direction I am now headed in my life regarding international BAM. This year’s BAM conference in Dallas only challenged and inspired me further, providing opportunities to make practical first steps in pursuing this calling.
