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. 

Matthew 28:19-20 says, "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Since 1930, CBMC has stood behind this mission.  Based on Matthew 28:19-20 and founded on the deeply rooted conviction to carry out the Great Commission, CBMC continues with this same mission today.  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.  

CBMC exists to point men to Christ allowing the Gospel to transform them into ambassadors for Christ in life and work.  Using the Marketplace Ambassador Advancement System, men are trained and equipped in evangelism and discipleship with in-depth one-on-one Operation Timothy and the small group relational LivingProof Adventure. Peer advisory and leadership training round out the many tools available for a man seeking purpose and to live a life of significance.

The CBMC logo represents the all-encompassing identity of who we are in Christ. God is fully represented in the power of this cutting edge brandmark as the 3-persons of the triune God. The brandmark also represents a circle of men; a team working in unity. Additionally, the brandmark speaks of Christ covering the life-on-life relationship of a Paul and Timothy. The CBMC brandmark is visionary for men of CBMC who are united in their desire to reclaim their cities for Jesus Christ.


Christian Business Men’s Connection is set apart as a unique marketplace ministry through relational one-on-one discipleship.  Men investing in other men, praying for each other, and intentionally engaging their lives to build spiritual reproducers.

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. 

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.

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 a 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.
