Using business to Advance the spread of the gospel among the unreached

How business helps to make disciples and plant churches among the neglected: Stories from Africa

This decade belongs to Business for Movements (B4M) because the peoples who most urgently need a gospel breakthrough are in places with the least resources, infrastructure, and access. Business for Movements goes where the Church is not. It pioneers the apostolic advancement of Christward movements among Frontier People Groups, which, to date, have had no breakthrough of the gospel or church planting.

In this Mission’s Edge, you will hear two stories of All Nations business planters and church planters who use business to support themselves and simultaneously make disciples and plant churches among unreached people groups.

Most of the movements we know are not self-sustainable, we want to be the solution.



Meet oliver and rhoda

For years Oliver and Rhoda have been planting churches among the neglected. Many times they couldn’t pay school fees for their six kids and some days they couldn’t put food on the table.

They are passionate to plant more churches in new villages. Unfortunately they don’t have the money to travel to these new villages and less people will have the change of hearing about Jesus.

With your help, they started to farm rice and a taxi business. Through training them in Pioneer Business Planting, ongoing coaching and access to a FaithFund they can bring food on the table, give to others and travel to the unreached places to make disciples and plant churches.

How we work

We are making church planting movements self-sustainable through the following steps.

1 determine location

We mainly work with church planters that want to extend the reach of the gospel. We determine if the location has the vision, time and resources to focus on churchplanting and starting businesses.

2 field consultation

In the 5 day interactive Pioneer Business Planting consultation participants will learn how to use business to reach the lost, to write a business plan and skills to start and manage their business.


The participants start researching their communities. From there they gather all the necessary information and write their business plans.


Through regular meetings an experienced business coach will help the participants develop their business plan and develop further skills needed to start and grow the business.

5 funding

Once the business has proven to be viable, the next phase is raising the capital to start. We encourage people to find funds locally through a bank, micro-finance institutions, personal savings, loans from friends and family etc. We also set up local FaithFunds to start the businesses.

6 multiply businesses

The participants start the business, ongoing business coaching will be provided and when it grows new businesses will be started.

When Philip was 14 year old, he drank alcohol, smoked and stole from people. In 2014 he almost got killed because he stole cows from multiple people. His mom cried every day. He went to prison multiple times. Since our workers have told him about Jesus, Philip repented and has been baptized. He is completely changed. He stopped smoking and drinking.When he has money, he buys food for his family.The mom and grandpa of another gangster who was baptized, Blessings, cried tears of joy: “I never thought someone could change so much!”.

Called to do business

Growing up in an impoverished family in Kenya, Kefa was pulled into doing business at a young age. Before the age of 10 he started earning money, so he could provide himself with books, clothes and sometimes food. His first deal was with a man who wanted to start planting tea. As Kefa’s parents worked in a tea plantation, he could get seeds through them. He sold them to this man for 5 shillings; his first starting capital.
