Important CMBA Contact Updates
As of July 1st, CMBA is moving to an all-virtual office. Staff members and independent contractors will be officing in their homes or at another ministry workplace. We discovered during the pandemic that we did not need a physical office. We will be giving up our office space that is currently at North Trenholm Baptist Church. A key question is, “How can you get in contact with us?” We believe we will be even more available as a virtual office than we are with a physical location. Here are the ways to contact us. Many of them remain the same.
General Mailing Address: CMBA, PO Box 23192, Columbia, SC 29224 This stays the same. No other mailing address will work for CMBA. If you need to ship something to us, contact us and we will supply the correct address to use.
General Telephone Number and E-mail Address: 803.691.7110 or CMBA@ColumbiaMetro.org

It is only open by request from a CMBA church for them to deliver or pick up hunger ministry items, or to drop off items such as health kits and other ministry items.

CMBA staff and mobilizers are engaged with each of these congregations as part of our focus on new congregational expressions. Lead and assisting congregations in our family are encouraged to pray for and support the ministry of these congregations.
