Support-Based Missions: Is there validity and a biblical basis?

By Jacquelyn Davis, National Intern Coordinator - If you follow Social Media, you might have noticed that November 27th is known as #GivingTuesday. Around here, being a mission organization that trains, equips and sends out missionaries, you can imagine how often the topic of giving or support comes up. Since Giving Tuesday is upon us, I decided it was about time to write this blog post answering the question, “What exactly is support-based missions and why is it important?” Support-based missions is when an individual or family is financially supported by ...

Following God’s Leadership

By Ryan Everritt, CBM National Intern - I am on my last rotation at Camp Red Arrow and then will be graduating from the year-long Internship program. This is not, however, the end of my journey. I may not want to be a full-time Children's Bible Ministry staff member, unless it's what God wants. Still, I want to go make disciples of many nations, as it says in Matthew 28:19 (ESV), "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.”  As those are the words of Christ's command, I have such a ...

Since the very beginning of the Bible, God has shown His love to man. Even though He ...

Today I'm going to tell the story of how God led me to become an intern. The best part of this story is probably the fact that I don't remember the exact moment I decided to apply for the program! First things first, I am from central Florida, in Bartow, about forty-five minutes away from CBM's Camp Gilead in Polk City. Living relatively close to Camp Gilead, I had heard about it for a few years ...

A New Voyage

By Dennis Farris, CBM National Intern - The ropes are released and you can hear the soft whir as the engine starts. The boat slowly begins moving forward across the water. The captain begins to steer, to ensure a safe departure, and consults his maps and instruments to ensure a safe voyage. At this point, one must put his faith in the boat, that it won't sink or fall apart, and in the captain, that he may get you safely across the seas. When we are called of God, our journey into a life with Him can be seen as something similar. We throw off the ropes, the things ...
