CPMs Up Close
International Mission Board missionaries are currently engaged in a number of Church Planting Movements and
near-Church Planting Movements around the world. While each of these movements bears the influence of our missionaries, each is different as well.
Despite these differences, there are common traits that characterize almost every CPM. In the examples that follow, you will see how several IMB missionaries came to be involved in CPMs. Some were instrumental in the movement from its inception, while others arrived after the movement was well under way. In each case, there are lessons we can learn that may be transferable to other situations.
