Trailblazers of BAM: Hans Hamoen and Bill Job

A 40-Year Journey of Business, Faith and Global Impact

In this episode Gea and Bill engage in a conversation with Hans Hamoen, a businessman in his seventies, and still ‘on a mission’. He is involved in various Central Asian countries, but his journey began four decades ago as a Bible smuggler, using his trading business to transport Bibles from the Netherlands into communist countries. Witnessing incredible manifestations of God and experiencing miraculous provisions has significantly contributed to building faith and courage in his life. Even though he assures that this hasn’t been the case all the time: ““As in natural life, also in our spiritual life, we should mature from childhood where our parents take care of everything to a stage of adulthood, where we are expected to be able to make decisions ourselves. Including making mistakes, and learning from them!”

Hans and Bill share about the evolvement of the Business as Mission movement globally over the past decades, and presently also see local BAM networks emerge. Both are seasoned BAM veterans, and they, as Westerners, initiated businesses in foreign countries, as Hans states: “I am called to bring hope.” Both men though, underscore the importance of an equal playing field and honoring the local businesspeople. And to help, encourage and support them to engage with Business as Mission. They perceive this as a promising development and a pathway forward for the future.

Check out the course 'Kingdom Mindsets for Business, Life & Work' developed by Gea and Bill. You will gain insights to thrive with joy and fruitfulness in your work, both spiritually and professionally.
