Our Mission

CBMC stands for Christian Business Men’s Connection.  Our mission is to present Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord to business and professional men and to develop Christian business and professional men to carry out the Great Commission. 

Matthew 28:19-20 says, "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Read More...


Our History

CBMC began in the United States in 1930 as Christian Business Men's Committee, when a small group of Christian businessmen coordinated a series of pre-Easter prayer rallies. With the Great Depression in its second year, these men saw an urgent need for spiritual revival and took it upon themselves to plan a six-week evangelistic series of meetings at the Garrick Theater, in the Chicago loop area. Public response to the first gathering on January 6, 1931, was overwhelming, as more than 800 packed into the 800-seat facility for all six sessions.  As the meetings were drawing to a close, the downtown Chicago business community wanted to continue the gatherings as more and more men were experiencing life change through their newfound relationship with Christ.

CBMC is passionate about developing leaders. In partnership with The Center for Coaching Excellence, CBMC has produced customized leadership coach training based on professional coaching standards from the broader Christian coaching movement. Christian coaching is a one-on-one, structured relationship in which two people partner for growth, change and forward-moving progress. The coach does this by providing a regular, safe, encouraging, and Christ-centered forum. Leadership Coach Training (LCT) is a unique mix of content, interaction, and practice which result in genuine learning. In the eight weeks following the workshop, you’ll be a part of a weekly 60-minute teleclass or webinar that will build upon and deepen the content you have learned. At the end, you will have the skills and confidence you need to use coaching in a variety of real life situations. Complete the registration form to get involved.
