A CBF/GA Ambassador is one who actively promotes our organization and encourages connections between his/her local church and CBF/GA. With the intentionality of our Ambassadors, CBF/GA hopes to build stronger connections with its partner churches, and therefore become a more effective resource and support for our fellowship.
