The CBR Journal has developed through the input of leaders who personally benefit from the tool, deeply desire to have the organizations they lead infected by the tool,  and winsomely advocate for the tool to other leaders. 

Our Advisors provide valuable feedback as The CBR Journal is updated annually.

It is so easy to use and plugs in to our culture of media connectivity so easily while building the timeless muscle of faith and obedience to Christ’s Word.
