 MMED depends on prayer to accomplish its mission.

Answers to questions we failed to address earlier

MMED enables anyone, even those who do not have large amounts of money, to invest in ministries around the world while retaining 90% of their initial investment.

 

The concept allows interested partners to participate even if they do not have money on hand.  Partners are allowed to provide appropriate goods and services in kind instead of money.

 

The greed factor is greatly minimized on application of the MMED concept.  Godliness with contentment reigns supreme (I Timothy 6:5-6).

 

The concept is not designed to serve single individuals or single families in order to minimize nepotism, ensure greater accountability and maximize empowerment opportunities  for the masses.

 

MMED requires a team approach to business.  Therefore, a one man “boss man” mentality will be diminished, thereby enabling the MMED venture to flourish with maximum benefit to the Christian entity and the other partners.

 

MMED is designed primarily around partnerships for mutual empowerment of several families in order to break the stronghold of “me first, others later” attitudes.  However, there is nothing unbiblical or unethical about one or two person(s) or families obtaining funds (grant, loan or cash on hand) to develop a business provided they are able to do so.


The church or ministry that benefits from profits of the business does not manage the business; Christian people acting collectively as partners and independent of the church do the managing. The church or ministry is not in business for itself, but it becomes a shareowner by gift designation and makes no contribution toward startup capital.  The church or ministry has no voice nor vote, therefore, it cannot control the business.

 
MMED encourages youth to become venture partners.
