The Think Tank has opened up an unprecedented forum for discussion, collaboration and networking on business as mission, amongst practitioners and thought-leaders from around the world. In order to invigorate and strengthen this movement we aim to: Listen, Learn, Share, Connect, Recommend
The International Coalition of Workplace Ministries (ICWM) is a coalition of workplace believers who want to encourage and unite leaders by inspiring, connecting, and equipping them for transformation of the workplace for Christ.

B4T (Business for Transformation) is specifically defined as a business located amongst unreached people groups with the express goals of being profitable and emphasizing evangelism, church planting, and discipleship. This is a double bottom line approach that integrates all aspects of business.

OPEN is the largest Business for Transformation (B4T) practitioner network in the world.
OPEN operates like the internet. We are a flexible, multifaceted, multi-ethnic network. We have found that together we can share our experiences and techniques to become more effective followers of Jesus so that we may yield greater glory to His name in the marketplace. We seek to encourage and model Christlikeness in every aspect of our lives and work. With gentleness and respect we work to share the hope that has been given to us. Our identity as members of Jesus' body and His command to love one another is foundational to our network.

TI exists to promote and facilitate tentmaking movement across the world and to provide a forum for networking
