CEM exists to strengthen current churches and to facilitate new church planting.
MAXIMIZING KINGDOM IMPACT
Harvest Offering 2020
Each year, CEM gives tactical support to our church planters so they can focus solely on creating a sustainable church community. One of the ways we do this is through our annual “Harvest Offering." Our goal this September and October is to raise an average annual salary for a church planter in Iowa (approximately $55,00/year).
Will you help us raise $55,000?
