Higher Call International

The Vision
To mobilize and equip American business professionals to employ their skills, experience, business platform and faith to connect with business leaders in other countries for the purpose of:

  1. Helping business leaders develop and grow their businesses
  2. Building genuine, meaningful, ongoing relationships
  3. Sharing the gospel, make disciples and expanding Christ’s Kingdom.

The Philosophy
As access become more difficult for known missionaries and church planters, the avenue of using Christian business professionals overseas (doing legitimate business) becomes viable and strategic.  There are countless men and women engaged in business in the US, who have never been offered an opportunity to use their business talents and wisdom as a way to establish spiritual relationships with business leaders abroad.  While engaging in business or helping others with leadership development, Christ followers can forge meaningful relationships that will allow the privilege of sharing the gospel.  Higher Call International aims to develop partnerships and strategies that will provide an avenue for this type of engagement in other countries.

The Context
God is the architect, engineer, contractor, and sole proprietor of the universe—the  ultimate CEO of humanity. In His master plan He created us to employ our gifts and skills for His purposes.  Ephesians 2:10 explains:  “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”  Those good works include extending God’s common grace to us through businesses and economies.  Luke 12:48 teaches, “From everyone who has been given much, much will be required ; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more.”  American corporate and small business leaders have been blessed with an abundance of knowledge, expertise and resources with the potential to help corporate and small business leaders in other countries.  In addition, Christ followers are charged with the loftiest of assignments: go and make disciples of all nations(Matthew 28:19-20).  Higher Call International seeks to capitalize on a variety of business platforms of professionals to forge culturally appropriate business relationships internationally in order to communicate God’s saving grace in Jesus Christ. We are committed to accomplishing the mission with integrity and authenticity for God’s glory among all people groups.

Strategic Trend
Currently more than 50% of the world’s population lives in urban areas. In 1950, urban populations only accounted for 30% of the total population. By 2030, this number is expected to double to approx 60%. The primary reason fueling this growth? ——- higher paying JOBS! We believe this makes commercially strategic cities, strategic for Kingdom building purposes.
