Using Business as a Platform to Disciple Young People (Interview w/ Seth Barnes)


On this episode, Seth Barnes shares how Global U is being used as a platform to help young people develop as followers of Christ, both spiritually and professionally.

Questions and lessons explored in this episode:

  • What is the role of business professionals in the cross-cultural mission of the Church?
  • For recent high school graduates, do apprenticeships offer a better model for Christian discipleship than attending college?
