Supporting Community Bible Study
The mission of Community Bible Study is to make disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ in our communities through caring, in-
depth Bible study, available to all. CBS is non-denominational, with the leadership of each class coming from the local area and representing a broad cross section of the Christian
community. CBS leaders are volunteers, called by God, who love the Lord and His Word, and receive no monetary compensation. Only a small cadre of staff, located primarily at the Ministry
Service Center in Colorado Springs, are compensated.
How can you partner with CBS to fulfill our global vision of seeing lives transformed through the Word of God?
The Community Bible Study ministry began as an answer to prayer and we continue to lift up every aspect of the ministry to God. We welcome your continuous prayer support. If you would
like to see the specific needs of CBS, please look at our monthly Prayer Calendar. Thank you!
Class registration fees provide less than one quarter of the financial resources needed to operate the ministry. Each individual class, as well as the ministry as a whole, is
financially supported through the generous contributions.
We want you to know that all giving in CBS is voluntary. Class members who are unable to contribute may freely attend. We never want anyone to feel pressured to give, and registration
scholarships are always available.
Gifts to support the ministry of Community Bible Study can be made online or mailed to:
