WILMORE, Ky. — Highlighting their commitment to integrating business and Kingdom work, professors in Asbury University’s Howard Dayton School of Business have contributed to a new workbook and DVD set on Social Entrepreneurship. 

Professors Mark Gill, Kevin Brown and David Bosch contributed to “The Social Entrepreneur,” a workbook and DVD set based released in November 2015, published by Seedbed. The project also includes contributors from Asbury Theological Seminary and the Acton Institute. Click here to order copies of “The Social Entrepreneur.” 

“We bring a variety of scholarly perspectives to the study of social entrepreneurship, whether from a ministry, theology, business or ethical standpoint,” said Gill. “It’s not just one view of the subject, but you’re getting a whole variety of lenses which you can look at social entrepreneurship through.”

Based on the work of The Asbury Project, an annual conference on business and mission co-hosted by Asbury University and Asbury Theological Seminary, “The Social Entrepreneur” explores ways in which the church and the marketplace can work together. Available in softcover, DVD and Web streaming formats, “The Social Entrepreneur” invites readers to explore the Wesleyan theological foundations for social entrepreneurship, as well as the necessary steps to move a business idea from conception to reality. 

“The Social Entrepreneur” is great reading material for pastor’s small groups, college faculty and students who want to know more about using business to advance God’s Kingdom.

“For those interested in launching a venture aimed at achieving social impact, this text effectively marries sound entrepreneurial practice with equally sound theological inquiry in the Wesleyan tradition,” said Brown. “The result is a comprehensive picture of fully employing our head, heart and hands to God’s glory.”
