On August 23, 2019, the ULECx Market hosted a Birmingham Business As Mission B-A-M Buffet from 11AM – 12:30PM at Church of the Highlands Grandview.
Seven speakers were allotted seven minutes to share on the following topics: the definition of business as mission, intentional small groups in the workplace, using your business for God’s glory, the Word of God as our foundation, wise stewardship of investments into the Kingdom, collaboration of businesses to share profitability for the intentionality of spreading the Gospel to unreached people groups, and the importance of Christian business leaders living together in community.
Lunch was provided by MealFit and the event closed out with a networking activity creatively facilitated through an app called MixTrox.
The ULECx Market is a unity of Birmingham Alabama business leaders who have a shared love for God and all people. Market Partners are committed to encouraging and empowering one another to conduct business through an exchange (share) of relationships and resources. Each Market Partner is dedicated to serving in a spirit of excellence while promoting a culture of joy in our community. Through the intentional slogan “Bring It” the Market Partners work together implementing ambitions to:
- Sell It
- Buy It
- Trade It
- Promote It
- Find It
- business partner
The beauty of The ULECx Market is the picture of an outer circle, linking arms and facing outward, ensuring they see the needs of partner businesses and they “bring it” to care for one another in Jesus’ name.

Grace Klein Community was honored to be included in this Business as Mission gathering and Jenny Waltman was one of the “Seven in Seven” speakers. As an organization, we teach the concept of sharing, believing as the Word says, that if we all share what we have, we will all have what we need. We are excited to see God birthing The ULECx Market to empower Christian business leaders to boldly walk and lead in a way that shares the hope of Christ and demonstrates surrender of our businesses as worship to Jesus.
When we become stewards of the businesses/work descriptions/job responsibilities entrusted into our care, choosing daily to hide behind Jesus, no man can perceive what God has in store!
