T.Y. Video and Teen Testimonies: CBSM Advance Mission Trip to San Diego, CA

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.

Overall, here’s how things breakdown. Continue reading

CBSM ADVANCE Mission Trip: a Thank You from CenterPointe Church

Here is Pastor Chuck Rheam and CenterPointe Church personally thanking us for coming and doing a VBS out there. What they don’t know is…THEY were the REAL blessing…to us!

Tuesday on our ADVANCE Mission Trip in SD, CA

We got up, ate up, and got out by 10am this morning. We got out to share the word on the best church plant in the Chula Vista area of San Diego…the Centerpointe Church! So our CBSM high school students hit the streets hard for over 2 hours to just pass out tons of fliers for the church and with the gospel. We then went to the park for lunch, and a little chill time. After that, the VBS games began with about 35ish kids which meant all of our students got to disciple their own kid again. Praise God that two more kids were saved today! We made some really good connections at the park with families. It looks like around 100 new people should be visiting and checking out Centerpointe Church within the next month! We’re just praising God that He wants to use us like this for the gory of His Son in His Kingdom! Continue reading

cbsm and the challenge of church planting

Over our church’s mission conference called “GIC: Global Impact Celebration”, CBSM had in guest speaker, Chuck Rheam, who is an awesome church planter in San Diego, CA.  As our students are challenged to be involved in missions, we don’t want them to forget the incredible missions opportunities going on all over our nation: church planting.  Listen to Pastor Chuck for a strong challenge to be involved in church planting in some way, shape, form, or fashion.  And for an extra added bonus, something we never get to do, our CBSM praise band plays too songs at the end of the mp3…acoustic style.

on CBSM Making an Impact…Globally

Chuck Rheam (church planter out of San Diego, CA with Centerpoint Church) was CBSM’s guest speaker during our church’s GIC: Global Impact Celebration conference on missions.  He whipped up a powerful sermon for our students on Saturday night of the conference.  Check it out here if you weren’t able to listen.  He basically preached on: “Do you have what it takes to be a missionary.”  Listen to find out what it takes, and how to grow in it.
