“And we also thank God constantly for this, that when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men but as what it really is, the word of God, which is at work in you believers.” (1 Thessalonians 2:13, ESV)
CBMW is going big. $30k big.
It’s very exciting for me to announce that CBMW is launching a $30,000 matching donation drive. In recent weeks, we’ve had a major donor step up and partner with us to push CBMW forward. We’re thanking God for this friend, and we’re thanking him for the opportunity to partner with you.
For one month, starting today and ending on June 30, 2013, we’re seeking donations from friends, churches, and organizations that have benefited from our ministry. We know that there are many who support CBMW’s work to strengthen individuals, families, and churches by promoting God’s plan for the sexes achieved through the power of the gospel.
We want to ask you to go big with us.
We’re seeing the Lord show great kindness to CBMW in this new season of ministry. Our new website is seeing traffic that we expected in 2-3 years. Here are some eye-opening stats from our last couple of months. These will give you a sense of the exciting stewardship that the Lord is giving us in this season:
- From our website relaunch on April 8, 2013 to just over one month later in May 2013, we clocked over 102,000 pageviews–about 1000% more than previous months!
- Since we’ve been pumping energy into the CBMW Twitter account, we’ve added over 1,200 followers. Three of our individual channel accounts are over 100 followers–Manual, Karis, and Edge.
- Our Facebook page is humming with activity, and we’re just about to go past 1,000 “Likes.”
Want to join us as we move ahead? This matching drive has a special focus on new givers, so if you’ve given before, or thought about giving to CBMW before but couldn’t find the change in your couch, now is your time. We’ve teamed up with the folks at Simple Donation to make giving to CBMW a snap.
If you can give right now, this is the place to go: the CBMW donation page on our website, which is super-easy to use and secured by Simple Donation.
Should you be able to give, here’s a taste for what you’ll be supporting in coming days: book projects (including a major new resource addressing current theological and cultural trends), conferences (we’re planning a pre-conference before a major evangelical conference in 2014–look for that!), new reports/white papers/research on challenges confronting the church–issues like transgender identity & homosexuality, and much more.
Thank you for your consideration of our $30,000 matching donation drive. In light of our great and generous God–let’s go big.
