CBF Global Missions mobilizes 125 field personnel who work in over 30 countries, collaborating with partners worldwide. From short-term endeavors to life-long commitments, we empower individuals and churches to participate in cross-cultural service.
We stand with and among the most neglected and least evangelized persons throughout the world, sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with those who have never heard it. This work is done through Mission Communities and networks that emerge out of our God-given passions, and in partnership with the global church. We strive to serve among the most marginalized in holistic, sustainable and transformational mission and ministry.

Shifts in our global context mean that mission engagement must be agile but not fickle, responsive but not reactive, consistently present but not controlling.
Our global engagement is focused around eight mission communities:
- Poverty and Transformation Ministries
- Medical Ministries
- Disaster Response Ministries
- Church Starting and Faith-Sharing Ministries
- Justice and Peacemaking Ministries
- Ministry with Internationals
- Education and Training Ministries
- Economic Development Ministries
You can join networks within each Mission Community where you can connect with others who are passionate about ministry in similar ways as yourself. CBF follows an abundance model approach to mission, which is Christ-centered, collaborative, holistic, innovative, inclusive, asset-based and contextualized. We utilize networks of churches, individuals, field personnel and partners to accomplish our mission.
"Mission" is God's love of, involvement in, and revelation to the world.
Our task is to join what God is doing in renewing and transforming the world by listening for our call to be co-laborers in the task of fulfilling the Great Commission. We believe that scripture teaches that the Holy Spirit empowers the church and all believers for the mission of Christ in the world, who calls us to minister redemptively to the spiritual, physical and social needs of individuals and communities. We enable believers and churches to work cooperatively with other Great Commission Christians to activate this global missions calling in their communities and throughout the world.
We are committed to a biblical vision of justice and mercy. We believe the call of Christ extends to every area and relationship of life.
