God is raising up a new generation of entrepreneurs and business professionals, throughout the developing world, to be a force for building the Kingdom and fighting poverty.
Since 2003, Global Advance’s Marketplace Missions initiative has been equipping, encouraging and mentoring Believers in the marketplace to have a Kingdom vision for their work. They bring top-notch successful business people from the United States and other regions to share best practices, testimonies, and practical tools for a biblical approach to business.

Many frontline leaders have emerged through Marketplace Missions conferences, mentoring relationships, and networking groups to bring solutions to their nations. One such place is Rwanda. Global Advance recruited a team of Denver-area Christian CEOs to connect with local entrepreneurs in Rwanda. They partnered with the Rwandan Business Development Center to sponsor conferences for these frontline business leaders and began providing consulting to numerous businesses.
Over the course of two years, this group from the States has connected with several Rwandan businesses, which inspired them to found the Woodbury Group to help these businesses grow to the next level. A partnership was formed and a fund was put together to loan capital to help these businesses with growth challenges. The loan repayments are paid forward to help other businesses in a similar manner.
This year, Global Advance sponsored another conference that saw nearly 500 entrepreneurs come together to learn Kingdom principles and practical business strategies. After the conference, twenty of these frontline leaders were selected to present their business plans in a “Shark Tank” style format in competition for future capital distributions.
One shining example of a Kingdom business in Rwanda is Trinitas. They employ thirty-six people making large bricks for construction. The owners of Trinitas have a vision to use their business to be a blessing to the churches of Rwanda. They’re also helping with youth mentoring programs as a way of giving back.
Global Advance has helped sponsor hundreds of Marketplace Missions initiatives in over 40 nations.
