CBMC

The letters in our name, CBMC, stand for Christian Business Men’s Connection. Our focus is the two-fold purpose of evangelism and discipleship through life-on-life discipleship relationships, based upon our mission, vision, and core values.

Sooner or later, we all conclude that there’s got to be something more to life. Everything may be perfect, and yet we wonder if this is all there is to living. At CBMC, we believe the secret to solving our discontent lies in connection. By connecting with God and other men, we can experience the kind of satisfaction that fills our lives with meaning.

In CBMC, Christian businessmen connect others to Jesus Christ, and by His grace, they connect to other businessmen from all walks of life. Our diverse members share a common desire to deepen their connection with God, and along the way, they tell others about the completeness they’ve discovered through Christ. Because when they do, everything seems to connect.
