CMB Crisis Resources

During a time when people are overwhelmed with fear, Christian radio has the privilege of bringing hope and encouragement to the masses. To quote counselor Dwight Bain, “Christian radio shines brightest in a crisis.” It is CMB’s desire to provide Christian radio with resources to encourage, engage and equip you as you reach your community for Christ. Many people have come together to craft this CMB Crisis Resource Page for you. It is being updated on a daily basis in order to best serve your needs. The CMB Forums are a way for our industry to continue the dialogue as well. We invite you to sign up today.

CMB is offering Momentum 2020 as a live, interactive, virtual experience. We’re bringing you and your colleagues together to encourage and inspire all of us to reach even more listeners with the Gospel. Virtual Momentum 2020 takes place May 26 through 29.

If you have more to add, please do not hesitate to email me.

Serving Him Together,
Michelle Younkman
CMB Executive Director

2 Timothy 1:7 – For God will never give you the spirit of fear, but the Holy Spirit who gives you mighty power, love, and self-control.
