Lincoln and Jamie Simmons, CBM National Directors

May 2019

CBM Volunteer Work Week 1

A HUGE thank you to all the volunteers who traveled to Tuckaleechee Retreat Center for the 1st work week of the year and gave their time and talents to improve the property. Volunteers came from 9 churches.

CBM Volunteer Week 2

The 2nd Annual Volunteer Work Week was also a huge success thanks to the hard work of Heritage Baptist Church from McConnelstown, PA. They encourage us every year with their time, talents, hard work, and joyful hearts.

2019 Directors Conference

We had a wonderful week of learning and growing together at this year’s CBM Directors Conference held at HQ April 8-11. This year’s Conference theme was “Fundraising.” We trust that the information shared will serve to bless and strengthen the local CBM ministries.

The 2019 Program Director’s Conference was hosted by Camp Ta-Pa-Win-Go, March 11-13.  Program Directors gathered from all of CBM’s ministry areas to learn, share ideas, and fellowship!  8 of our Alumterns (graduated interns) and current Interns were able to take part!  We are thanking God for how He is using the internship program to raise up young missionaries dedicated to serving Him in all areas of camp ministry!!

CBM Summer Camp

Summer Camp is just around the corner!  One week for your child to get away from technology and spend time in the great outdoors learning what it means to be a child of God through fun games, group activities, crafts, and Chapel!!!  Register your child today at any of our 11 camps located across the Eastern US.  Visit Summer Camp 2019 for a full list of our camps and this year’s schedule.

Internship Opportunity

We have the privilege of hosting several amazing Bible teachers every year as they teach our interns Bible study methods, Christian Ethics, Leadership, Old/New Testament, and more!  The interns will be able to use the skills and concepts learned in these classes throughout the internship as well as after they graduate.

We are currently seeking young people (18+ and graduated from high school) who love the Lord and would like to spend one year being discipled and equipped for full-time ministry!!  Now accepting applications for Team 11 starting September 2019 and Team 12 starting January 2020.  Apply today at:

Take a Vacation in the Smokies and Support the Ministry of CBM!

Here at National Headquarters of CBM we have the privilege to host couples, families, and groups at Tuckaleechee Retreat Center whenever we are not using the cabins/lodges for Internship activities or CBM retreats & conferences.  We use all the profits from the retreat center to expand the ministry of CBM through the Internship program and opening new ministry areas across the US and now internationally!!  We’d like to invite you to enjoy your own getaway this summer in one of our cozy log-style cabins or lodges.

Blessings and Burdens

Camp Grace, MID-ATL: Praise the Lord for the opportunity to partner with Angel Tree in sending children to camp for free! We are excited for the opportunity to minister to these kids whose parents are incarcerated. Please pray that many doors would be opened through this partnership.

CBM of the Great SW: Praise God for Katlyn Carney, our April intern who served with our Released Time staff in Willow Springs, MO. She was a great blessing to Patty and her team! Pray for our board as we seek God’s direction regarding our future Released Time ministry.

Camp Gilead, FL: FIVE girls “gave their lives to Jesus” at the Faith Extreme Bible club that Luke, Tawny and Scott have been helping with this year! Praise the Lord!

Interlocking Ministries, Kenya: Pray for Repairer Christian School (Mfangano, Kenya) students and teachers as they are growing in their faith and learning. Pray for God to raise up Christian leaders in this generation. Pray for fundraising for the high school construction.

CBM of the UK: Pray that God would continue to provide opportunities for Greg and Brittany to build relationships in the community and share Christ with unbelievers.
