LANGUAGE / ETHNIC MINISTRIES

To find language or culturally identified congregations go to our find a church form.

CB Northwest exists to establish, unify and encourage local churches to reach out to all people groups as commanded by Christ. The CB Northwest family of churches seeks to emphasize the values, needs and opportunities for service with and to the many language and cultural communities with whom we share our region.

Preferred Philosophy of Ministry

We help churches provide culturally relevant ministries to targeted language and cultural groups. Our goal is to incorporate everyone into the local fellowship while meeting cultural identity needs. In this way churches can reach a larger segment of their communities.

CB Northwest is available for consultation in initiating and developing language ministries as an integral part of the local church.

For further information contact Rev. Roy Libby, Director of Language Ministries at 503-405-1533 or royl@cbnw.org

Leadership Training

We provide two leadership training programs in Spanish. Other leadership training can also be provided through translation.

Academia Bíblica

Academia Bíblica is a Theological Education by Extension Program primarily using SEAN Materials and is the responsibility of each local church. CB Northwest maintains a stock of materials, provides training for tutors and keeps records of the student's progress. Some Bible Institutes will give credits from these courses.

SELAN

Working in conjunction with NAB (North American Baptists) and Western Seminary, (Portland, OR) CB Northwest Language Ministries has initiated a program designed to challenge, train and facilitate mature and committed leaders of our existing congregations in the task of designing and developing new daughter congregations.
