Coordinator of Organizational Relationships
Prosser joined the senior leadership team of CBF in August, 2002. As the Coordinator for Congregational Life, he was called to bring his 25 years as a career congregational Christian educator to a new level. Though his title has changed, his challenge throughout the years has always been to help make the Fellowship more relevant to congregations and congregational leaders.
As a result, his teams have developed the It's Time program for spiritual formation, the You've Got the Time! Bible listening experience, a congregational prayer retreat model and, most recently, the Dawnings initiative. Additionally, his leadership has led to the production of several congregational discipleship pieces, Christianity for Beginners for adults, the Becoming Like Christ series for youth and children, Destinations, an annual planning resource and Klesis, an adult discipleship resource.
He has written and produced resources directly related to the missional church, and has helped to deepen CBF partnerships. His leadership has provided funding, writers and editors to produce a host of other congregational resources. Prosser has given previous leadership to restructuring the new church starts area and CBF's chaplaincy and pastoral counseling work.
Prosser has secured funding from several sources to insure the continued growth of the Dawnings initiative, collegiate student ministries, resource development and the CBF Fellows program. His interest in spiritual formation has been directly responsible for the deepening of prayer experiences for individuals and congregations.
In his new role as Coordinator of Organizational Relationships, Prosser is committed to deepening relationships with existing partners, developing relationships with new partners, working with CBF state and regional leaders and supporting his colleague, Devita Parnell, as she leads the Young Baptist Ecosystem.
