Our First Preholiday Mixer a Hit
Our first preholiday mixer last month was sold out and attended by over 250 CBP members and guests from the surrounding community. We made new business acquaintances, received new business, and had Christ centered fellowship together. If all goes as planned, God willing, we hope to have our first mixer and exposition in the fall of next year.

4th Annual All Chapter Mixer
Mark your calendar for our fourth Annual all Chapter Mixer, hosted this year by the Rancho Cucamonga Chapter. This event will be held at the Rancho Cucamonga Community Center on Friday, February 20, from 9:00 to 11:00 AM. This will be a great opportunity to meet members and officers from other chapters, give and receive referrals, and hear several inspiring business and ministry presentations. Advanced admission is $5 (at the door is $10), and registration is limited to the first 200 guests. To also help defer the costs, we have twenty vendor/sponsor tables available to CBP members first, until 2/6/15, and then to the general public on a first come bases thereafter.

New Membership Policy
Starting next year, all new members will be required to complete the online Ministry Manual Training course. The online manual and accompanying tests takes about one hour to complete and covers the basic guidelines of the ministry. All applications for membership submitted prior to 1/1/2015 are not required to take the training course. However, all CBP members are highly encouraged to go through the training for a better understanding of the ministry. The Ministry Manual Training course can be accessed from the CBP member control panel after logging in.

End of Year Donations
Thank you for your financial contributions to CBP this year. Your gifts allowed this ministry to grow in every area by over 25%. Our growth included new members, new chapters, and new business. We look for equal if not greater growth in 2015, and with your continued support I believe that we can do it. If this ministry has been a blessing to you please consider giving an end of the year donation. Any amount is welcomed and no gift is too little. Donations can be received through our chapter meetings or online at

Without Jesus there would not be a Christmas. Without Jesus the world would be lost and not resemble anything close to the way we know it now. Without Jesus death, darkness and disorder would reign.

With Jesus it all comes together and finds its right place. So worship Him, say His name often, and let Him have every part of your life.

Jesus… “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6

Merry Christmas
