Abstract

This article details the collaborative development of the Kingdom Professional Model and outlines the basic elements of the tool the authors have used for more than a decade to develop globally engaged followers of Jesus who understand  the relationship between God, themselves, and their ability to serve others.  The premise of the model is that Kingdom Professionals integrate their living, loving,  and learning in intentional ways that multiply those who are prepared to share the gospel of the kingdom through service.
