BUS4100 Catalytic Roles in Marketplace Transformation

Course Overview

Educational Level: Upper undergraduate, Bachelor
Credit Hours: 3 Credits
Instructor: Dr. Ignatius Meimaris

Course Description:

The key goal in this course is for the student to see himself as a change agent that becomes a catalyst for the process of transformation that in turn infuses the marketplace with Kingdom of God dynamics for lasting redemptive change.

How This Course Benefits Students:

Although the believer comes to experience the relationship with Christ as an individual, the impact of this relationship does not end with changes within that person. In fact, it begins from that point to extend beyond the individual to his community and the marketplace. Gods concern is always for His Kingdom and he set out to strategically involve his people in order to transform redemptively the environments where they work and live. A servant leader impacts those around him and fosters transformation. Even secular writers and editors such as Lawrence Harrison, recognize that the Protestant work ethic, rooted in Scriptures, has played a role in transforming nations with their economic development, (Culture Matters: How Values Shape Human Progress by Lawrence E. Harrison and Samuel P. Huntington, 2000). So Christians have a major role to play in their communities.

Why This Course Is Important:

Unless a student becomes keenly aware of his role in the community where God has placed them as that of a change agent, no matter the magnitude, it will be impossible to be effective as a citizen of the Kingdom
