2021 | MINISTRY ACTION PLAN

Connect men to Christ and each other.

CBMC stands for Christian Business Men’s Connection. Our mission is to present Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord to business and professional men and to develop Christian business and professional men to carry out the Great Commission.

CBMC exists to point marketplace men to Christ allowing the Gospel to transform them into marketplace ambassadors. Reaching men in the marketplace with the Gospel and equipping them for kingdom impact in their life and work, is now more relevant than ever. As men seek to live lives of significance, CBMC stands ready to share the hope of the Gospel and provide effective tools necessary for spiritual growth.

Our vision is for all Men in our Movement to Experience: The Power of One God, The Value of One Man, The Leverage of One Team Resulting in Spiritual Reproduction among Businessmen throughout the World.

CBMC teams around the nation are meeting men where they are and developing them into the men God designed them to be.

Groups of CBMC men sharpen one another. Communities of purpose-minded men encourage one another through authentic relationships built on the foundation of Christ.

Leadership coaching and training through CBMC accelerates professionals toward business goals and personal growth in a Gospel-centered approach.

CBMC offers a variety of state-of-the-art leadership resources, materials, opportunities for connection, one-on-one mentoring, and discipleship. Join a dynamic network of believing brothers who are integrating work and faith while doing business God’s way. Contact us today to get connected!

Our vision is a movement of God among business and professional leaders in every nation, resulting in lasting life change that continues to multiply.

Values

Christian Business Men’s Connection is set apart as a unique marketplace ministry through relational one-on-one discipleship. Men are investing in other men, praying for each other, and intentionally engaging their lives to build spiritual reproducers. CBMC values men being actively engaged in their families, work, and communities by providing a network of teams that equip and train them to be on mission, with a purpose.

Prayer – We begin with prayer because Christ reveals the Father to men (Luke 10:22), the Father draws men to Christ (John 6:44) and the Spirit convicts men of guilt (John 16:8), we bring men before God before bringing God to men.

Calling – CBMC is a movement of business and professional men who believe God has called them to take Christ to the marketplace.

Relational Evangelism – We utilize the tool, The Ten Most Wanted Cards to identify and pray for the lost men whom we believe God wants us to reach with the Gospel. Evangelism begins with prayer, is most effective in a relational lifestyle, and is to be carried out with a sense of urgency.

Life-on-life Discipleship – The Word of God is our ultimate resource for teaching men who God is. Discipleship is relational as God often utilizes a variety of people in this process. We are called to be disciple-makers and this is most fruitful in one-on-one relationships. The hope is to see 3rd and 4th generation reproduction. The heart of discipleship is forming Christ in people as we discover, through the Word of God, who He is, His character, and His plans.

Team Ministry – We are called to function in an team environment (the body of Christ) and not independently. We need the gifts and support of each other. CBMC teams are devoted to Christ, one another, and the cause of the Gospel.

Why the Ends?

  • We measure what we do and report on what God does
  • We are in the efforts business and God is in the results business
  • We give God the praise and testimony for what HE is doing within the Ministry of CBMC!!!
