The local church has always and will always be the heart of CMU. Before founding CMU in the 1970's, Rev. Chuck Conner (Big Chuck) was a local Baptist pastor. In the early days of our work, coming alongside young churches in Brazil and helping them get established created relationships that have lasted for more than four decades.
CMU is blessed by the hundreds of church relationships that are a part of the CMU family. We are honored to come alongside a local congregation and partner with them so their members can to be the 'hands and feet' of Christ. Some of our church partners send construction teams, others provide the funds for a church building and others do both. No matter how a church connects, we are humbled to play our part in connecting the local church in Brazil with the local church in America.
At CMU, relationships, with a local church in Brazil as well as a local church here in the U.S., is what we truly value.
