Mission Box is an initiative of CBFVA that encourages churches to gather supplies to help existing organizations fulfill their mission.
Each year CBFVA partners with a different ministry to both offer education about different organizations that do good work and to give churches a chance to get directly involved.
Your Mission Boxes can either be sent directly to the selected organization or arrangements can be made with the CBFVA staff to pick up your boxes and we will deliver them. Our hope is that Mission Box gives your congregation a really practical way for people of all ages to get directly involved in missions.
