CBCHR News Blog
It was four years ago, after a client recommendation that I had my first exposure to Leadercast, and to say the least, my expectations were underwhelming. To be honest, it wasn’t where the event was being hosted or the roster of speakers…In retrospect; it was my lack of quality experience in remote educational events. In previous experiences, the hosting sites rarely did a notable job in engaging with their remote venues. My history told me that the experience I would receive in an auditorium of a couple hundred fellow leadership professionals watching the program on a big screen together would have no great difference to a more opportune time, sitting in my office chair, enjoying my preferred treat of the day. Thankfully, for myself and my business since, the client who referred me did not allow me to dismiss the opportunity so easily. Four years later, as a result of that experience, we find ourselves as the Spire Sponsor of Liberty Live’s and the CBCHR’s simulcasting Leadercast 2016. So, as a previous participant, the primary sponsor of the event, and the official host of the VIP experience, I am excited to share with you why we were so excited about this event.
Benefits of Sponsorship:
Leadercast/CBCHR 2016 is the single best opportunity for marketing your business to the top 750 business leaders in Hampton Roads in 2016! The mission of Leadercast is to develop leaders worth following. At the CBCHR this is consistent with our purpose of developing Christian business leaders to claim the marketplace for Christ. As a public event, with the speakers that Leadercast is going to provide, combined with the experience that the CBCHR in partnership with Liberty Baptist Church is going to provide, we are going to draw the very best in Hampton Roads together for this one-day leadership event. We want you to join us on this adventure! How do you do that? You do that by partnering with us at one of the remaining sponsorship levels and take advantage of this event to position you and your company in front of those business leaders. We are all about creating mutually beneficial relationships and will work with you prior to the event, during the event and post-event to help you take maximum advantage of this sponsorship opportunity.
*** Update!*** We finished 2015 at 66% of our goal. Let's take that momentum and finish this project out in the first quarter of 2016!
**Update!** We are at 21% of our goal and need to keep going! We have an anonymous benefactor that has offered for a limited time to match dollar for dollar every donantion that we raise! Here is a chance for your donation to count double toward bringing the gospel to an unreached people group in northern India, in their heart language, through a translation of the Jesus Film!

CBCHR Board has choosen our mobilization project for 2015. We are pledging our support to fund and mobilize a missionary with the Jesus Film in a new translation. Our fund raising goal is $25,000 and that will cover the cost of a single translation of the Jesus Film into another language plus the equipment required for a missionary to take it on the road with no external power required to show it to 100's and 1,000's.
Witness for yourself how people are moved when hearing the story in their own tounge.
