WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
We are followers of Jesus Christ who have committed to share His love and message through business ventures in underdeveloped areas of the world. By creating jobs in regions of great scarcity, we endeavor to bring solutions to the problems of poverty, exploitation, and corruption by providing income, opportunity, and ethical practices as part of our holistic mission, using business as our platform.
OUR VISIBLE WITNESS
We have established “visible social enterprises” in order to minister to a people group with such acute needs, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Our business ventures create opportunities for people to learn new skills that provide opportunities for them to thrive in their community.
HOW WE GOT STARTED
In 2008, four Christian men came together through a convergence of independent conversations. We rallied around a passion to use our experiences from business to have an impact for the mission of Jesus Christ in regions of severe poverty and spiritual need.
As we prayed and sought council from other Christian leaders, the vision for Marketplace Ministries Worldwide began to emerge. Today, MMW is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation engaged in establishing businesses as a platform to join God’s redemptive mission to the world.
