World Missions is an important aspect of our Gospel ministry at CBC. Currently we support twelve different missionaries and mission efforts around the world.
It’s important to understand that our participation in world missions does not end with financial support. Our desire is to develop meaningful relationships with our missionaries and participate in significant partnerships. As we see it, our missionaries are a part of our local church and our local church is a partner in their work. These incredible servants are our friends and brothers. We have the distinct privilege of working along side them, providing encouragement and ensuring their needs are met.
Short Term Missions
Every year members of our church from all kinds of backgrounds set off for remote locations around the globe on short-term mission trips. The vast majority of these trips are to our own missionaries. This allows us to stay connected with our missionaries in meaningful ways, to assist them in various ministry related projects and provide them with the type of encouragement so many missionaries are lacking. More than anything else, these trips are tangible efforts to ensure the Gospel ministry in various areas around the world continues.
Obviously, these trips also offer life-changing experiences for our own members. Teenagers, housewives, retirees, business men, doctors, nurses, computer technicians regularly have their lives transformed through the eye opening impact of these trips. Our short-term trips ensure our church body never loses sight of the vast work of God in the world.
CBC is also involved in various local outreach efforts around the city. These include relief work for various natural disasters around the state. A part of our ongoing local outreach is The Siloam Clinic - a free clinic staffed once a month by our own doctors and nurses - and monthly chapel at The Hope Center.
