Greetings—my name is Owen Strachan. As CBMW President, it’s my pleasure to introduce the summer 2014 “Stand Against the Tide” campaign. I’m delighted to announce that we have a $25,000 matching offer on the table and, on this invigorating occasion, are inaugurating our brand-new partnership program, which includes the opportunity to join CBMW for a leadership retreat in a coastal locale (see below).
To give to CBMW, please send your contribution to:
The Council on Biblical Manhood & Womanhood
2825 Lexington Road, Box 848
Louisville, KY 40280
You may also give online through Simple Donation.
As you can see below, CBMW had a banner year in 2013-14. Yet there is so much work to be done, and we’re seeking to raise many more funds in order to propel the work of CBMW. With Executive Director Grant Castleberry and our outstanding board, we want to strengthen the church of Jesus Christ to resist cultural pressure to cave on biblical sexual ethics. Like Moses at the battle of the Amalekites, we want to raise flagging hands and lead the church in promoting gospel-fired sexuality and humanity with fresh passion.
At CBMW, we look around at our world and see all around us reason for hope. God’s Word is unassailable. His gospel is invincible. When the hands of his people grow weary, he makes them strong, as he did with Moses (Exodus 17). We have so much work to do, and all we need is for churches and individuals like you who share our love of God to partner with us and push this ministry ahead. Giving to CBMW is not an obligation—it is an opportunity, a chance to be part of a very unique and strategic ministry that equips the body of Christ to speak gospel truth on matters of gender and sexuality.
So please take this opportunity. Join us in this exciting, unpredictable, life-giving work. Contribute now to our summer 2014 fundraising campaign, taking place through mid-July. Partner with us to strengthen weary hands and bless churches all over the world!
As you prayerfully consider giving to CBMW, let us share a few highlights from 2013-14, a thrilling year of ministry thus far.

As part of our “Stand Against the Tide” campaign, we are announcing our first-ever partnership program. Given that we serve thousands of complementarian churches and ministries, we would like to dramatically increase the number of churches and organizations that partner with us out of a sense of shared mission.
As the information below shows, the partnership program—open to churches, ministries, and individuals—will include generous resources, recognition on our website and publications, teaching by CBMW staff, and an annual CBMW retreat with board members, top speakers, and CBMW leadership:
Please partner with CBMW to strengthen the church, promote biblical sexual ethics in a morally-compromised culture, and exalt the Lord Jesus Christ. We’re standing against the tide, and we want to link arms with you to do so!
You, too, can help support the ministry of CBMW. We are a non-profit organization that is fully-funded by individual gifts and ministry partnerships. Your contribution will go directly toward the production of more gospel-centered, church-equipping resources.
This new curriculum is aimed at Christians who are facing challenging questions with the rise of LGBT ideology on topics like homosexuality, transgenderism, gender dysphoria, intersex conditions, preferred pronouns, and more. The study is broken down into eight chapters that guide readers through the Bible’s teaching on gender, sexuality, and marriage. Male & Female He Created Them gives Christians with a biblical foundation that starts in Genesis 1 and 2 with God’s good design in making mankind male and female in His image.
Male & Female He Created Them: A Study on Gender, Sexuality, & Marriage can be purchased online at Christian Book, Christian Focus, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.
