National Conference



Each Labor Day weekend, CBM hosts a three-night National Conference for the missionaries from each of its 13 locations of ministry.  Missionaries and their families, along with any Board members and volunteers, reunite for worship, fellowship and networking, learning and sharing new and best practices, encouragement, instruction from the Word of God, and fun.  Because none of CBM’s locations have a large enough facility to hold this event, it is hosted off-site.
