Business for Transformation (B4T) is…

A business located among least-reached people groups with the express goals of being profitable and emphasizing evangelism, church planting, and discipleship.
B4T has two bottom lines: economic transformation and spiritual transformation.

The OPEN Network is…

Made up of individuals in the 10/40 Window, who are doing Business for Transformation. We are not a “sending organization”; rather, we equip and empower churches to send the people who are called to do business among the least reached.

The Benefits of Joining…

  • Coaches—OPEN business coaches have successful careers and are experienced in their fields. They focus on understanding the unique needs of B4Ters. OPEN also has several “Peer Advisory Huddles”—groups of like-minded individuals who meet regularly via Zoom to discuss and coach each other in workplace matters. 
  • MentorsMentors proactively come alongside a person or couple to provide encouragement and accountability in every area of their lives and work in B4T.
  • LoansOPEN maintains a portfolio of loan funds to help B4T entrepreneurs start or operate businesses within developing nations in the 10/40 Window. We seek to be a sustainable investor that deploys capital in places too risky for traditional capital by offsetting the geopolitical risk with spiritual capital.
  • ApprenticesApprentices are individuals or married couples newly arrived on the field; they walk with a mentor and learn from a B4Ter about what it takes to thrive in their calling. OPEN works closely with their sending fellowship to assess, train, and prepare Apprentices.
  • Service Provider DirectoryThe SPD is a list of professionals and services you may choose from for your spiritual, emotional, social and physical needs of living overseas—including education resources, insurance needs, marriage issues, crisis management, etc. 
  • Invitations to eventsAs a B4Ter, you will automatically receive information about OPEN events. OPEN hosts two major events, in alternating years. 
  • Relationships with your Home FellowshipIf your Home Fellowship would benefit from someone at OPEN reaching out for a personal connection, we have a team at the ready! We can help your Home Fellowship understand what you are doing and why B4T is so important, and even encourage others to join the global B4T movement!

B4T takes place only among least-reached people groups. For more definitions and statistics about the reached status of people groups, see the Joshua Project.
