CBF Legacy Partners

“We may never see the end results, but that is the difference between the master builder and the worker. We are workers, not master builders; ministers, not messiahs. We are prophets of a future not our own.”
(Bishop Ken Untener of Saginaw at a reflection on the life of Bishop Romero)


A major goal of CBF Global Missions is to facilitate long-term ministry that results in greater impact around the world for the cause of Christ. CBF, through its field personnel and local partners, have been the originators, innovators and catalysts for a number of field ministries that survive and thrive beyond the administration of the founders.

Whether these ministries began with us or we engaged them substantially somewhere in their lifecycle, these ‘Legacy Partners’ are marked by the fact that they endure in their own right, in most cases well after the founders moved on to other work. Now largely directed by local or indigenous partners, they grow from strength to strength, testimony to the fact that they are God’s work in which we were privileged to play a part.
