It’s officially 2017! As we usher in the New Year together, may we thank God that he makes all things new. As he remind us of how much we need to rely on his presence to lead and guide us each day, let’s look to the Holy Spirit to be our guiding force as we move into to a new year, in our decisions and choices, and for his help as we boldly proclaim that in all circumstances, and no matter the season, Christ is indeed enough for us. At CBM, we’re so excited to offer you and your church wonderful new resources for the coming year. Thank you for allowing us to be your partner in the work of God’s kingdom around the world, and keep reading to see what’s new!

The floor is yours. We want your input. Help us constantly improve the way we deliver news to your mailbox! Follow the link to a quick poll that won’t take more than 2 minutes of your time.
Bringing you the 2017 Global Discipleship scholarship program – Praxis. Each scholarship, estimated at $5500, provides the opportunity for the accepted participant to engage in missiological reflection on a significant issue related to Gospel and Culture in a global context.

This scholarship program is available upon application, to a select group of CBM affiliated students enrolled in an accredited theological school, pursuing graduate level seminary studies (at a Masters or Doctoral level). Dr. Lois Mitchell, the professor of record, will travel with you and lead in this reflection.

We are excited to bring you a brand new 2017 Kids Care missional teaching resource this year on the topic of hunger. Something that is common to all cultures and peoples in the world is food. Food is the most basic necessity to live, yet many people and communities in the world lack access or means to this fundamental ingredient of human life.
Using Kids Care: Hunger Bites, your class can study the Bible together, seeing what God has to say about the importance of food as a gift, and sharing this gift with one another. You will learn about the impact, scope, and causes of hunger, and how we can fight for food security together as the body of Christ, and do it through fun activities, games, and stories!
