The BAM Course is a three week training that lays a strong foundation for future business as mission involvement. The teaching in weeks one and two focuses on the Biblical basis of business, core business topics and business as mission in practice. The field trip in week three brings BAM principles to life through real-life cases. We aim to build on both understanding and practical skills through a wide variety of learning processes.
