“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.”
