Young Professional (YP) Peer Advisory Groups (PAG) are closed groups of 10 young professionals with a SAGE (Seasoned Action oriented Godly Executive) leader.

Why: Isolation is dangerous and leadership development without focus and mentorship can be slow. The YP initiative is designed to accelerate the process of becoming a Christ centered business leader worth following.

How: Each meeting will include 3 periods: Fellowship/member host issue/and roundtable sharing, Presentation by local Christian business executive, and Spiritual sharpening 

Who: Young Professional men 25-45 years old

When: Once monthly 3 hour meetings

What: Experienced, successful business professionals will lead Young Professional Peer Advisory Groups through a proven process of study, prayer and teaching. You will be an integral part of CBMC Central Midwest, a network comprised of Christ centered business executives throughout this area. 

Space is limited.
This opportunity comes with high expectations and high reward potential.

The CBMC Young Professionals group has been tremendously helpful both in my spiritual maturity and business competence. I have forged great relationships with likeminded men and had the opportunity to learn from some of the brightest business minds in our city. I couldn’t be more thankful for the opportunity and highly recommend any young person to join.

Being a part of YP has been a Godsend the last few years. I am very blessed to be surrounded by a group of brothers who love you and help to hold you accountable. I have made many good memories as well as new friendships. My walk with the Lord has increased tenfold since joining this group. Incredibly thankful for Gary getting me connected. No problems are too much for God to help you handle and this group really exemplifies that from all the shared experiences everyone brings in. Excited for continued growth!

As an emerging entrepreneur desiring to make an impact in the business world for Christ, the CBMC Young Professionals group has been a Godsend. The community of like-minded young business leaders gathering for the purpose of spiritual and professional growth has been life-changing and life-giving. I am not an entrepreneur who happens to be Christian. I’m a Christian who happens to be an entrepreneur…The YP group has helped me make that distinction! I’ve been involved with the YP group in Kansas City since it’s conception 3 years ago and the monthly speakers, group members and spiritual directors associated with this cohort make it one of the most incredible experiences of my life…I cannot recommend it highly enough.
