CDM partners with international believers behind closed doors assisting them to fulfill the Great Commission. Our purpose is to expand the body of Christ through local churches and sustainable ministries. We assist key clergy, professional and business leaders to reach their own in countries restrictive to traditional missions. We strive to empower international believers behind closed doors to grow holistic ministries through spiritual, intellectual, social, and economic initiatives.
We work with our national partners to empower and encourage them, but we do not support them on an ongoing basis. Many organizations say they partner with nationals, but in reality they are supporting national workers on a monthly basis which continues the cycle of dependency, and does not encourage independent, sustainable ministry.
We work hard to combine good business and good ministry. Our goal is to do both things well. Paul the apostle, made money for ministry by making and selling tents, AND he accepted donations from churches and wealthy individuals. Many missionaries ‘play’ at business, either being uneducated and inexperienced or they use business only as a means to an end. Many business-people ‘play’ at ministry, either just sending money to ‘professional’ clergy, or getting involved in complicated cross-cultural situations without regard for the local dynamics. We want to bring the strengths of each of these parties to the table and minimize the weakness. Together we can do more, this is the future of missions.
