2019 CBMC Family Connection

2019 CBMC Family Connection


SAVE THE DATE… JULY 9 – 13, 2019

Mark your calendars now and make plans to join us for the 2019 Family Connection! Registration opens January 1, 2019




Event Speaker will be Jim Wood.



Growing up in Montreat, NC, Jim Wood began preaching at age fifteen. The first time he preached at the Montreat Church he was stunned to see Dr. Billy Graham in the congregation. He never dreamed that years later he would serve as Director of Mobilization for one of the largest evangelistic efforts in US history, My Hope America with Billy Graham. Along the way he pastored churches on Cape Cod, in Atlanta, and in Tennessee. But the dream God gave him as a teen was to open a home and school for children from families in crisis. That dream came true when Jim and his wife Susan started Wears Valley Ranch in 1991. Click HERE to learn more about the Ranch.


Jim maintains an itinerant preaching ministry, filling pulpits, and speaking at conferences and retreats. He is a teaching elder at Covenant Community Church in Wears Valley. Jim also hosts a radio program, Abiding in Christ which airs M-F on Sirius/XM ch 131. His audio and video ministry has viewers all over the world. Jim and his wife Susan have authored fourteen books. They have seven children and ten grandchildren.

Past Experiences: What they’re saying….


We have enjoyed the CBMC Family Conference for over 20 years. Through it, God has richly blessed my marriage, my children and now my grandchildren. The CBMC Family Conference is so much more than a family vacation… it’s a lasting heritage of God’s blessings through wonderful Bible teaching, quality family time and life-long friendships. It truly reflects my life verse: “The blessings of the Lord make you rich and add no sorrow to it.” – The Palms


My wife, children and I have met lifetime and forever friends. The CBMCSE Family Conference has trained me as a better husband and father. – The Hatchers


Our kids grew up and we made life-long friends with their parents. Our prayer after college was that our kids would return to the conference after getting married. In 2007, our prayers were answered. – The Guptons
