I’m very excited to announce the starting four new chapters in the next several months. If you think that one of these chapters might work for you or someone you know, use the following link or our website to sign up.

Covina (CA): If there are enough registrations we plan to start a new chapter in Covina this October. The chapter will meet on Tuesday mornings at Millie's Restaurant.  Covina Chapter

Lakewood (CA): Our second chapter in LA County is scheduled to start soon. Evelyn Abernathy will be the chapter president. If you know a business owner in the area that would be blessed by Christian networking, direct them to our website.  Lakewood Chapter

Chapters Started This Summer
The following chapters had their first meetings this summer.

Butler (PA): This chapter meets at Mac's Route 8 Café every Thursday morning from 8:15 – 9:30 AM. As of today the Butler Chapter has all four officers and would love for you to join them at their next meeting.  Butler Chapter

Corona (CA): This chapter meets at Hunnys Restaurant every Monday morning from 8:15 – 9:15 AM. They had a great first start with over 30 in attendance at the first meeting but are still in need of several officers… maybe you can help.  Corona Chapter

Orange (CA): This chapter meets at the Broken Yolk Café every Tuesday from 8:15 – 9:15 AM. With all four officers now positioned, our newest Orange County chapter is here to serve and bless you.  Orange Chapter

Victorville (CA): This chapter meets at El Pescador every Thursday morning from 8:15 – 9:15 AM. The Victorville Chapter continues to do well and flourish, however, they are in need of two additional officers.  Victorville Chapter

Summer Growth
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.

CBP School
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!

Praying 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.
