Throughout the summer CBP has continued to grow despite the normal summer slump. Last month we were up year-to-date 75% in attendance, 101% in referrals, and 42% in contributions, which is very exciting. Thanks everyone for your service and keeping other Christians in mind for business.
To manage the growth of the ministry is has become exceedingly important that we have a robust training program. Without training we will not be able to handle future growth and will end up having many problems. The good news is that most of our 23 chapters are pretty much the same from chapter to chapter, but this consistency has only been due to the one on one training by chapter officers and administrative leadership. To make the training easier and more accurate we have been actively working at adding new officer training courses to our existing online school and hope to have them all completed by the end of this summer… which means, we will be able to do more!
Most, if not all, of our chapters have a time during the meeting that we pray for each other’s needs. This is one of the most important and powerful aspects of this ministry. I want to encourage our members and officers to continue in this practice and remeber the words of Paul, “Pray without ceasing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:17
Ephesians 3:20 (KJV) Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.
