Explore Southeast Asia – Business

“Why are you here?” This question is one of the most common questions asked of Americans by people meeting them outside the US. Being able to give a quick and reasonable answer tied to a legitimate business takes the pressure off and gives an instant topic to continue a conversation. Connecting with people through the mediums of business and work, gives legitimacy and credibility to the disciple-making process. Interns who join the Encompass team in this developing Southeast Asian country, will work in community development ministries. These platforms impact and serve the community while providing the face-to-face interaction that lays the foundation for spiritual engagement.
