Professors Launch ‘Business. Ministry. Life.’ Blog

Blog to encourage Christians in business

Jan. 25, 2013 By Jenna Bartlo

For the past 12 years, the Crowell School of Business has educated and motivated students in the field of business. Now, the professors are teaching beyond the typical classroom to a broader audience in the digital classroom format of a blog. The school’s new blog, “Business. Ministry. Life,” is a collaborative platform where professors inspire and educate through sharing best business practices.

“When I worked in industry, I would have highly valued a place where I could get good, biblical perspectives on the challenges I was facing daily,” said David Bourgeois, director of innovation and associate professor of information systems at Biola.

By integrating faith and best business practices, the professors hope to encourage business professionals in their respective fields, no matter their experience.

“The goal of our blog is to engage students, alumni and anyone in the marketplace with thought-provoking posts and videos to encourage them as they do the Lord's work using their gift as business people,” said Bourgeois, who serves as one of the bloggers.  

As a source of business expertise for green business professionals, students and even CEOs, the blog is updated throughout the week providing helpful tips, inspiring stories and motivation for business men and women to excel professionally.

Two of the blogs most popular posts are Can Ordinary Work Be Ministry?, written by professor Steve Rundle, and To Walk in Their Shoes: The Nonprofit Marketing Project, written by professor Les Harman.  To read further, visit the blog at http://crowell.biola.edu/blog/.
