Roundtable Gatherings with CMBA Congregational Pastors and Staff

In 2020 before the beginning of the pandemic, George Bullard began holding Roundtable Gatherings – typically at lunch – with CMBA congregational pastors and staff. These came to a halt in the middle of last March due to the pandemic. The third week of April these will start up again and will be held in various places throughout the association. Typically these will be lunches, but later a couple of evening meals will be held.

CMBA will buy the lunch and provide a book or other resource for each person who attends. The goal is to have six people at each gathering so we can have in-depth conversations around a table to build fellowship and to dialogue about the opportunities and challenges of our congregations.

CMBA Director and Mobilizers are Scattering for Easter and the Week Following

George Bullard and our Mobilizers will scatter to various places during Easter and the week following. We will largely be unavailable from Friday, April 2nd – Saturday, April 10th. It is difficult to say our office will be closed as we primarily work virtually. Something urgent or an emergency? Feel free to contact George Bullard during this time at 803.622.0923 or He will respond as soon as possible.

We pray that Easter 2021 is a wonderful celebration of the resurrection of our Jesus the Christ in your congregation. There will be no One Priority Briefing distributed on Monday, April 5th.
