Marketplace & Development Enterprises

What We Do

At our core, we are a service organization. We provide services to believers seeking to make money and make disciples in the marketplaces of unreached communities around the world. We connect Christ-followers to resources that help them build authentic, caring relationships with people who need to experience the love and hear the message of Jesus. We deliver those support services on three fronts—business, missional, and personal.
