Short-Term Mission Trips

We are excited for the opportunity to go reach the world for Christ through our 2017 short-term mission trips. At CBC, one of our values is redeemed people can't keep quiet, which means as redeemed people we are compelled to share the stories of God's goodness and love with not only our surrounding community, but the world. If you would like to give financially to our IMPACT campaign as a whole, a specific trip or an individual trip participant, you can go to our Giving page. On the giving page click "GIVE NOW" and select the fund "Mission Impact 2017" in the dropdown menu. If you're giving to a specific trip or an individual trip participant, you can write in the name of the trip or the individual in the memo space. Please be praying for our teams as they are prepare and go share the love of Christ.
