We are looking for various types of teamsthat are ready to be challenged with an opportunity to be the hands and feet of God to the people of Puerto Rico. We will initially work with the NAMB church planter in the community along with him and his family however God shows and directs us.

We will be prayer walking and doing various projects with the missionary family as directed by him, with the intent to be able to invite the islanders to participate in the services and other activities.

UGANDA HUMAnitarian, EVANGELISM, discipleship PROJeCT

Uganda, Africa

February 21-28, 2020

Uganda has endured some of the worst atrocities over the past 30 years, creating a human crisis beyond measure. Many churches and Christian Organizations have been working to help orphans, single moms, hunger needs, AIDS patients, and other desperate human needs to share the love of Christ. Caring for orphan kids and educating them using God’s word and love to meet their physical and emotional needs. They are the next generation of believers that will carry the gospel to their own people, if we will be obedient to take it to them and share it with them.

Project Description: To work with one of our very own members that grew up at CBC, as a child, teenager and now an adult called to minister to the little ones that have been abandoned by their parents and families. Volunteers have given Mama Kits, which is a bundle of sterile items that they would carry with them to the clinic or a mid-wife to have their baby, from bedding, towels, soap and other necessary items. While doing this and sharing the simple gospel story we have seen 600 individuals pray to receive Christ and over 125 baptism this last year. The response is amazing! The teams will serve by giving Mama Kits, visit orphanages, schools through Bible Study, VBS, Games, Construction, etc. as requested by the team on the field with the intent to be able to share the gospel. The Ugandan seminary trained pastors will follow up and disciple those that make decisions for Christ in our absence.

Koro, West Africa 

church planting partnership

May 14 - may 22, 2020

Mission: To continue to connect churches with trained church planters that are engaging Unreached Peoples in the Ivory Coast.

Overview: CBC met the Koro for the first time on a vision trip in the Northern Ivory Coast in 1998. The team was impressed with the friendliness and openness of the Koro people to receive strangers whom they suspected to be Christian. The Koro are 99.9% Muslim and have been since about the 15thcentury. CBC had numerous contacts through 2002 with the Koro, until civil war broke out in the Ivory Coast. In 2007, a team traveled back into the country with the former missionaries, and they were welcomed. As a result, relationships were re-established with the Koro. Not only are we engaging the Koro but now have broadened the scope of inviting other churches to do the same in other areas with other UPGs of the Ivory Coast.

Elijah Walker, an Ivoirian Pastor with a PhD in Missions from Mid America Seminary, joined our team and he has been invaluable in strategy and discipling. But much further he has petitioned the Ivoirian Baptist Union to use the land near Toumidi for a church planting institute to train church planters. Central was the first to connect with one of these trained planters and Daniel and Helen are doing a great job among the Koro People. Ebele has now gotten several other planters ready to engage other unreached peoples with the gospel.

On this project, we want pastors of churches in America to prayerfully go and get to know the planters and the UPGs. As God leads, we are asking churches to engage the planter and the UPG in partnership. This partnership for the churches in the US would be to pray continually for the UPG, the Planter, as well as support the planter, and provide a motorcycle for transportation. As God leads, the church may want to send prayer walk teams to help “break up the ground” spiritually with the planter.

Costs: $3,500. *Price includes lodging, meals on site, travel insurance, airfare, visa, and transportation. Price does not include meals in route to and from the field of service, in airports, to and from airports, and inoculations. 

Application: Mission Application with a $350 non-refundable deposit. Applications available online at centralbaptist.com. Price includes all land, air travel, visa, in country food & housing. Does not include inoculations and personal expenses.

English Outreach Project - Takasaki, Japan

June / July 2020

Vision: Youth, College and Young Adults are invited to go to Takasaki Japan and participate in a conversational English meetings with students and adult that have a deep desire to learn English. This is the door God has provided us to begin to share our story about the greatest gift of salvation with them.

Overview: The mission of this team is to look, see and hear every opportunity to share the gospel. We will be prayer walking and having conversations with other students and adults in English with the intentions of sharing the Love of Christ. Assisting the missionaries there with various activities and to build credibility with the Japanese people we come in contact with.

There are basically two religious systems that have had the most influence in Japan, Shinto and Buddhism. There’s an individual who owns a burger restaurant that we have a relationship with and we have shared with and enjoys meeting Americans. We always like to bring people to meet him and it brings up opportunities to continue to share with him. We will plan additional events for English conversations for the team to host while they are there in one of the restaurants or one of the local schools.

There are also a handful of variables considering the makeup of the team. If they're sporty, there are opportunities to play some different sports with some college students that we know. There will be many opportunities to prayer walk using the rental bike system and ride around the city praying and chatting with people we met. We got to share the gospel with a handful of people this way and the team would get to see some of the things that are really going on there in Japan. The size of the group is important… It’s better for the team to be relatively small, it’s would be difficult to involve everyone with a big team, less that 10 would be good. 

People should expect to use English as a way to meet people and draw interest. We do a lot of things that are focused on English conversation as a way to meet people and open the conversation. Sports is also an avenue that is use to meet people, but that would depend on the team that is coming. We could possibly work out some sort of children's event if necessary.

Flexibility being the key!

Price: $2,700 Includes in-country food, airfare, housing, and transportation per person but the price may fluctuate depending on the price of fuel at the time of purchase of airline tickets. Does not include meals in route to and from the field of service, in airports and to and from airports.

Student Ministry/ Evangelism Project

koro, west africa 

July 23 - August 2, 2020

Vision:  To impact young Koro students of all ages with the gospel through drama, testimonies, and recreation in “Trumann”, a key Koro village.

Overview:  God has used four teams in a row to see several young people come to Jesus in a Muslim environment. These young people are praying an hour each day with one of their professors to see their campus come to Jesus. The team will be well trained, but the team also needs to be creative. Taking strategic Bible Stories and acting them out brings great insight to Africans. Creating a bond through sports is an awesome venue, especially if the team learns to play soccer. They would love to challenge you and win! Also, telling stories and building creative activities around the stories helps make sure they remember them. Pastor “Elijah” senses that now is the time to see many young people come to Jesus. You may have some late-night sessions, as some will want to linger and visit with you. This is going to be good!!!

CBC met the Koro for the first time on a vision trip in the Northern Ivory Coast in 1998.The team was impressed with the friendliness and openness of the people to receive strangers whom they suspected to be Christian. The Koro are 99.9% Muslim and have been since about the 15thcentury. CBC had numerous contacts through 2002, until civil war broke out in the Ivory Coast.
