STEP is a model for churches that want to go deeper in building relationships with Christians in the developing world. The STEP program is designed to give our most innovative churches the opportunity to partner and connect with a specific country and partner through CBM. This program is an initiative that invites Canadian churches to move beyond financial support. STEP churches are direct stakeholders in the work of nurturing passionate discipleship for local and global missions.
CBM is committed to building relationships by acting as a liaison between churches and our international partners. In Bolivia, your church will partner with our ministry staff, the Chagas Project, and the Emanuel Foundation in Cochabamba.
