BUA 250 - The Business of Care, Help, & Development (3)

People of faith, like everyone else, are active participants in a business-dominated world. Developing a clear understanding of how the business world runs, and more importantly, having our faith perspective define and dictate how we understand and behave within this world is the primary intent of this class. Specifically, the course will focus on several key attributes: • First, we will explore our Christian anthropology, and the relationship between this anthropological makeup and commercial activity (i.e., business). • Second, we will describe poverty in its most pervasive forms: Economic, Social, and Spiritual. • Next, we will explore the Biblical mandate to address these forms for poverty. • Further, we will incorporate key insights from the field of business in order to think carefully about how we fulfill our Biblical mandate to serve others and address poverty (i.e., how do we care in an effective, helpful way?) Here we will borrow from a growing body of scholarship to help us think carefully in these areas. • Finally, the course will involve practical application: What does it mean to apply our learning to specific ministry contexts?
