Three Reasons Why Long-Term Missions Can Never Be Replaced

By Joshua Paxton In the high-tech and fast-passed world of today, we often find ourselves asking how can we accomplish things more quickly? How can we meet goals more quickly? How can we expand more quickly? Studies have shown that the current attention span of Generation Z is a mere 18 seconds. This is largely based on social media, in which a person will take an average of 18 seconds to decide if they are going to watch a video they see on Facebook.   “[Short-term missions] will never serve as an alternative to long-term investment in the lives of others for the gospel.” Applied to the realm of missions, this mentality is ...

He uses wilderness type experiences to mold us, to build character, and teach life lessons to those of us He has called to serve Him.

Most importantly, I know this because He has used this setting to change my life. In Deuteronomy 8, God is ...

Much More than Missions

By Billy Long, CBM National Intern - Hello, and welcome to Much More than Missions! My name is Billy Long and I am an intern on Team 9 with Children's Bible Ministries (CBM).

CBM’s 7th Camp Is Open!

We made it!  Our seventh CBM camp is up and running. Cornerstone Ministry Center is located in Green Co., Pennsylvania. The state has given us a 14 day temporary occupancy permit. This will allow us to have our two weeks of camp at this new site. The Lord has provided funds, volunteers, and hired workers which permits us to use the 18,000 square foot building that was given to CBM by a mining company over 2 years ago. Our cook Gloria Cox’s response: “I have a kitchen!  I don’t have to pack up all the supplies like I have done for the past 19 years.” “When I look around, I am so thankful I just want to cry” Our Area Director Judy ...
