Exploring Missional Entrepreneurship
ordinary people | missional enterprise | kingdom impact
What is a missional enterprise? How does it relate to reimagining church & discipleship? What new forms of leadership does it require?
What would it look like to see enterprises & businesses develop that are centered on participating in the redemptive activity of God’s kingdom?
Praxis is delighted to host a morning with Ralph Gatti (see bio below) who will share his intriguing & inspiring story of how he is starting, leading & supporting different impact enterprises throughout Europe. We will also outline plans to begin a cohort for people who are interested in continuing exploring this area.
If you are involved in leading a business, thinking of starting a social enterprise, keen to explore new forms of church & discipleship, and want to learn with likeminded people, then join us starting 10am (9.30 for tea / coffee) until 12.30. All are welcome, registration is free with a suggested donation option. We encourage you to attend in person but hope to have an online option as well.
