Do you feel lost
CBC holds a major commitment to world missions. From our earliest days, we asked God to make us not onlya supporting agency for the cause of world missions, but also a sending agency. The Lord has honored this request! Most of the missionary families we support call CBC their church home.

Take a look at our current missionary support roster:
Cliff & Judy Anderson - This dynamic couple met and married at the age of 40, had a baby at age 41, and headed to the mission field at age 42! Serving with Wycliffe Bible Translators (WBT) in the Philippines for several years, Cliff used his IT expertise to support the translators there. Cliff and Judy now serve on the team at JAARS Center (Jungle Aviation and Radio Service) in Waxhaw, North Carolina, an arm of Wycliffe that provides equipment, training and high-tech services to Bible translators in field locations around the world.
Missions

Bracken Everett & Susan Bracken – Everett serves as director of the Parkview Christian Learning Center, a Gwinnett county Released Time organization that offers religious courses to Parkview High School students. This exciting program has really taken off - nearly 90 Parkview students attend Everett's Comparative Religions class every day at CBC. He is also the director of Core Foundations, the organization that oversees all Gwinnett County Released Time programs. Everett and Susan live in Lilburn with their two children, Lauren and Daniel.

Boyden & Lois Donmoyer ­ – Another longtime WBT couple, Boyden and Lois served 21 years in Peru before returning to Stone Mountain to work in the WBT Southeast Regional Office for another 20 years. Now retired, they serve in various ministry roles for both Wycliffe and CBC. Boyden also serves on the CBC Board of Elders. Missions
Missions Dick & Betty Kay – Longtime missionaries, Dick and Betty are involved in church planting and evangelism in Kingston, Jamaica, with IMS International (formerly Island Missionary Society).
Don & Ruth May – Another couple dedicated to the task of Bible translation for minority people groups. They joined Wycliffe Bible Translators from the pews of CBC in 1993. Ruth has served in a number of roles and now works in finance for the Eurasia Area. She is the bookkeeper for two groups working in dozens of languages. In 2013 Don became a retired member of Wycliffe, after 20 years of service with SIL International Administration, the Eurasia Area and the Americas Areas. Don was a Manager Trainer, Area Training Coordinator, International Leadership Development Coach, Cross-cultural Curriculum Developer and Project Funding Coordinator. He now works as a Database Administration for a College at Georgia State University. For eight years, after returning from service overseas, they continued their work with Wycliffe while also serving with The Broom Tree Refuge (TBTR). They continue as Board members for the TBTR ministry in Arkansas - which serves Pastors, Missionaries and Staff in Christian ministry. They live in the Atlanta area and have four married adult children and nine grand children.  Missions - Don and Ruth May
Missionary Dan & Tricia Miller – With JAARS in Waxhaw, Dan serves as the chief instructor in the aviation division. Tricia works in administration. Prior, Dan and Tricia served a number of terms in the Philippines where Dan, a helicopter pilot, would fly Bible translators to their assignments in remote regions.
Gene & Martha Purvis – This energetic couple served 12 years in Costa Rica before returning to Lawrenceville in 1998. Currently, Gene and Martha work with CAM International planting Hispanic churches in the Southeast. Missionary
Missions Paul & Kathy Schmidt ­– Currently based in Dallas, Paul serves as a WBT consultant to the translation project of Batembo, the native tongue of eastern Congo. While travel to Congo is currently prohibited, Paul is set to attend a final workshop in the bordering country of Uganda for the production of the book of Genesis in six Congo languages. Paul and Kathy have four daughters: Lydia, Anna, Grace and Kathryn.
Mary Ann Steffy – Located in Dublin, Ireland, Mary Ann serves with Greater Europe Mission. Beginning as a church planter, Mary Ann moved into full-time Christian counselling in 1991, as the need was so great and there were no trained Christian counselors at that time. In 2000, she was diagnosed with stage 4-breast cancer. As monthly chemo treatments keep her cancer in remission, she continues her work as a Christian counselor, lay-counselor trainer and discipleship leader. Missions
Missions Lawrence & Barbara Trumbower – Together, this hard-working couple runs a daily radio ministry (WCGB 1060 AM “The Rock”) and manage three local radio stations in Juana Diaz, Puerto Rico, through Grace Ministries International. Lawrence serves as the stations’ engineer and Barbara helps with programming, computer and administrative work. Their daughter, Tirzah and her  husband, David, are missionaries serving in the former Soviet Republic of Kazakhstan.
Chad & Becky White – The daughter of Don and Ruth May (see above), Becky grew up in CBC. When she was 16, her parents made the decision to become full-time missionaries with Wycliffe, taking support staff positions. Becky knew then her life would follow a similar path. Meeting Chad at Columbia International University, they decided to marry and become WBT missionaries. After graduation and a missionary stint in Asia, the couple was assigned to the Indonesia group. Chad supports the translation project tere as a linguistics specialist via his home computer in Loganville. Currently, he is earning his master’s degree in linguistics from the University of Georgia. Becky home schools their three boys: Josiah, Micah and Ethan. Missions

Kocher Family Rob and Tammy Kocher - Rob and Tammy both came to know the Lord at early ages and also knew early on that they desired to be in ministry.  Tammy grew up on the mission fields of Spain and England, while Rob grew up in Pennsylvania.  They met in college at what is now Cedarville University in Ohio where Rob studied Biblical Education with an emphasis in Pastoral Studies and Tammy studied International Business with an emphasis in Missions.
After graduation in 2000 Rob and Tammy got married and prayerfully waited a little over a year to pursue what ministry the Lord would have them serve.  However, the Lord did not appear to open any doors and Rob continued working in a couple different jobs while Tammy stayed at home with their kids Robby (2002) and Charisa (2003).  During this time Rob began to realize his affinity towards the administration of organizations.
In 2004 the Kocher’s moved from Ohio to Pennsylvania to be near Rob’s family.  Rob had the opportunity to go back to school for Accounting.  It was also during this time that Rob and Tammy began to sense that perhaps the Lord was leading them into ministry where they would enable missions through administration and hospitality.  As they prayed about what the Lord might have for them, He led them to Ambassadors for Christ International.  Now they are in the process of raising support to continue their work with AFCI as Rob acts as Operations Manager and Tammy assists in the hospitality aspects of the ministry.

Annual Missions Conference
Every February, CBC honors its missionaries by hosting an annual Missions Conference at church. All CBC-supported missionaries are invited to attend. The event, which usually takes place the third weekend in February, starts with a covered dish banquet on Friday night, followed by a worship service in the sanctuary. Saturday morning starts early with a men’s prayer breakfast in the Fellowship Hall. A women’s luncheon is held at noon. An evening youth dinner, a panel discussion with CBC missionaries and a worship service are held Saturday evening. A Sunday morning Sunday school visitation gives everyone a chance to meet our missionaries, learn what they do and ask questions. The event concludes with a final worship service.

Each year, a guest missionary is invited to serve as head speaker for the conference.
