The Multiplying Team serves our CVBA churches to accomplish our purpose of multiplying disciples and leaders for our existing and new church starts. This team also works to connect members of our CVBA churches to minister in foreign missions opportunities. The primary vehicle used by the Multiplying Team to help with this multiplying aim is our EBI centers (Equipping Bible Institutes).
This is training for our members and pastors. It uses college level course work to give further competence and confidence for being leaders in our Savior’s work. God calls every member of our churches to be a minister and a missionary for Christ in our local church fields. EBI strengthens existing and new leaders in our churches and gives the studies necessary to serve even as a pastor for those God will call to that ministry.
The training classes are conducted every other week and each session lasts fourteen weeks. There are three sessions offered during the year. Classes are now offered on-line and schedules are listed on the EBI tab of the CVBA website.
The Multiplying Team also offers other special trainings during the year and these are published on the CVBA website and communicated directly to our pastors. Each year an annual Missions Banquet is conducted where our churches come together for a fellowship dinner, worship, updating of missions work going on in and through the Association, and a missions guest speaker.
