Leadership Training
The Lord is showing us that there is a need to conduct more frequent but shorter CBMC Trusted Advisor Forum Facilitator Webinar Trainings. This initiative will serve our men best while providing CBMC National a strategically flexible response in support of rapidly initiating new city startups. Over 200 CBMC leaders have enjoyed attending and deploying this training to equip CBMC towards Vision 650.

As a Christian – You have a call on your life like no other… 

And I invite you to ask yourself this:

✔ Would you like a confidential place to share your business, personal and spiritual challenges, as well as successes, with other like-minded believers?

✔ Would a regular exchange of "best practice" principles integrated with your spiritual values make a noticeable difference in your business, personal or family lives?

✔ Would a group of carefully selected peers committed to journey with you for the long run be of value as you lead your business, family and community?

✔ Are you lacking Christian strategies to handle tough issues with family, friends, co-workers, employees, customers, vendors or even competitors?

If you answered YES to any of the above questions – I can help!!

Whether it’s business, personal or family – God’s mission for my life has been clear:

“He has called me to help men discover and engage in the purpose that He created them for. As well as, to empower high impact leaders with wisdom for life – helping them discover, develop and deploy their unique gifts for kingdom purposes.”

And at this stage in my life, I’d feel blessed to have the opportunity to come alongside you to grow together as God designed us, to achieve spiritual maturity and to impact others for Christ.

“Your heart for men and ministry in the marketplace has had a direct impact on my life. I have been challenged spiritually in my own life and business due to CMBC. The relationships that I have made has completely changed my business and outlook on running a Godly business. As your aware, we have grown our relationship with Rick Betenbough, whom we met through CBMC. Rick has come alongside us to encourage us in our business and show us a new way of operations and marketplace ministry. Also, due to you and our relationship, we have come to know and now hire new team members that we are prayerful we can impact in a Godly way, and they can add value to our team. I am excited to see what God has next as we pursue him, and I am thankful for you and CBMC. It truly is a blessing.”

“For many years in my Christian walk, I considered myself a second-class Christian because I had a secular job and was not devoted to full-time ministry. Through the CBMC Leadership Team I am involved in, I have learned that God calls and anoints business men and women to serve Him full time in the secular arena of life. All that God gives us is to be used as a platform to serve and honor Him. In doing so, He can use us, our businesses, and the relationships that are developed along the way for His Kingdom purposes. CBMC is a great educational and connecting resource in developing a Kingdom-focused life.”

“The Leadership Institute Peer Group has been a monthly highlight! I have met other brothers who are living Christ as they lead their businesses. The friendship is so valuable, the Bible study and prayer enriching, and the host issue discussions are a time for real evaluation and growth.”
