CBSM’s High School Mission Trip to San Diego, CA is on again for this summer. We will be working with Pastor Chuck Rheam and CenterPointe Church in the Chula Vista area. We want all of our high schoolers to go on this trip with us in order to reach families for Jesus and be personally trained in missions, evangelism, and church planting.
The total cost is around $850. We’ll get it lower if we can!
Parents meeting and $500 deposit for plane ticket: Feb 27th.
The remainder won’t be due till late June. TBD.
CBSM High Schoolers (9th – 12th grades) will be hitting up San Diego, CA for a seriously awesome mission trip. For the past few years, we’ve gone to San Diego to team up with Pastor Chuck Rheam and CenterPointe Church. They are a church plant right around 5 years old. We get to go in, do a VBS (Vacation Bible School) for all the kids in their community, share Jesus with them, and then just watch God do huge things in their lives. The trip will cost around $750 (including airfare and everything). So make sure to get this date reserved on your summer calendar, CBSM High School. We’d love to have you go with us. We’ll get you more information real soon!

Its been 2 months now since we’ve gotten back from San Diego…when we were out there ministering with CenterPointe Church. I have a few more resources I thought yall would enjoy checking out. Here is the mp3 of our student testimonies from those who went on the mission trip, below that is the video that CenterPointe Church made for us as a thank you, and below that is an email by Pastor Chuck out at CenterPointe to let us know what all God is doing there since our trip. Please continue to pray for Pastor Chuck Rheam and CenterPointe Church as they are reaching the masses with the gospel of Christ! ADVANCE 2010 Student Testimonies (mp3)
As far as our church services, things have been wonderful. I’ll start with the most recent. Yesterday our attendance was down a bit. We only had 120 in services. The exciting part is, we still had two guests visiting for the first time. I am thrilled to tell you that one of the guests received Christ as her Savior. By the way, one of the families visiting was from the VBS. We are still reaping the harvest from the work you accomplished a couple of months ago.
We got up and out early this morning to help our Centerpointe Church set-up all their stuff to make their church plant a praise-success every Sunday. Chairs, audio equipment, video equipment, tables, instruments, tables, promo stuff, snacks, and more was just some of the stuff they are setting up every Sunday.
Many of our students then went out to the surrounding neighborhoods around the church and handed out fliers and other promo material to invite people to the church that morning…or someday soon.
We then had the opportunity to lead worship (Jason Cunningham and our CBSM band), and I had the opportunity to preach on “How could a good God allow evil?”
After the worship service, we then helped the church tear everything down, and went to the part for our lunch. After lunch, we let the our students play around a lot in the park…when the craziest game of parkour extreme tag broke out among our guys. It was hilarious! Continue reading →
