Banquet and Celebration of Co-Missioning
Wednesday, June 25, 7:00 p.m.
Hyatt Regency Atlanta
Join us Wednesday evening for a Celebration of Co-Missioning! Begin your General Assembly by sharing a family meal and fellowship around the tables with your CBF community. After dinner we will hear inspiring stories of how our field personnel and fellowship congregations are co-missioning around the world – being the presence of Christ in tangible, creative, sustainable ways. Hear what is happening in churches recently started and in the ministries of our chaplains. The highlight of the evening will come as we join together in the blessing of newly endorsed chaplains and commissioning of new church planters and new Global Missions field personnel.

Meet the new field personnel and church starters:
Brooke and Mike have served in Southeast Asia before and return as a couple to be a presence of Christ in a community where Christians make up less than 10% of society. They go in CBF’s partnership model of service working alongside local leaders to wage peace. Mike is a graduate of Truett Theological Seminary, a CBF partner school, and Brooke brings with her experience in secondary math education.
“My passion is engaging persons of other faiths, promoting peace, and encouraging and equipping young believers,” Mike says. Brooke adds: “At this point, our biggest prayer need is for is for preparation in leaving for the field. Prayers for patience and wisdom in what needs to be done.”
Scarlett Jasper joins CBF’s Together for Hope initiative as well as the Poverty and Transformation and Economic Development Mission Communities as she continues to serve in the Appalachian foothills of Southern Kentucky.
“I am a Rural Poverty Advocate, working with individuals and families in crisis, including the homeless, victims of domestic violence and families in financial and medical crisis.”
While she assists families with financial counseling, job readiness skills, applying for additional benefits and services, Scarlette also coaches others to meet emotional and spiritual needs through classes, counseling referrals and Bible study.
Janel and Phil Miller-Evans From the Micah Center of Pinellas County, they join the Economic Development and Poverty Transformation Mission Communities as well as serve on the Urban Team of field personnel around the U.S.
“Phil and I have been working with underemployed children and families in the neighborhood around the church for the last 11 years. As a social worker I am called to advocate, educate and assist these families who struggle on a daily basis. As they relate to our center we have seen their lives improve financially, emotionally and spiritually. Our center has been the presence of Christ to our community giving these families dignity and respect in our community.”
