About Us

OUR VISION

To make Christ known in every vocational context around the world 

Biblical Foundations

​​Vocational ministry is nothing new. In Acts we read of Aquila and Priscilla leaving Rome and conducting their tent making professions in Corinth. Next we read of Paul asking them to join his mission team in Ephesus by using their professions as their ministry platform.

 

Then in Acts 18.26 we read of them taking Apollo home for lunch after synagogue and “showing him a better way.” Thus, our name comes from Acts 18.26. ​

BENEFITS

Vocational missionaries partner with a team or global partner already-established. The teaching, networking, and collective public witness of the team is a powerful gospel picture.​ In your job, you’ll begin by getting to know your co-workers and learning their needs and desires. Fruitful ministry will come through your desire to fellowship, cooperate, and witness to these co-workers. You will have the opportunity to reach folks, inside your company, that the team would not normally have access to.
