This paper explores the religious entrepreneurship of three Javanese pastors in Indonesia. It intends to illustrate the religious values obtained by pastors through self-reflection and faith experience that are enabling them to undertake social transformation. Religious entrepreneurship is a concept that locates the pastor as an agent of social transformation. Based on seven months of fieldwork using an ethical anthropological approach, this paper seeks to describe not simply gkj’s pastors’ experience of changing society, but also the faith struggle of the church and its community members. By applying the concept of religious entrepreneurship, this paper examines the aforementioned elements in order to display religious values as an underlying motivation for the Javanese pastors’ social movement in shaping humanistic and ethical social transformation in rural Java.
