COLORADO SPRINGS, — Best Christian Workplace Institute (BCWI) has named Community Bible Study as one of 2012’s best Christian workplaces in the United States.
BCWI is an independent, non-profit research organization that surveys employees of Christian organizations to determine how well they are doing. The confidential questionnaire asks about job satisfaction, commitment, Christian witness, the effectiveness of supervisors and management, personal growth and development, teamwork, communications, along with pay and benefits. In the last ten years, over 500 different organizations and over 11,000 employees have been surveyed. This was the first year Community Bible Study was evaluated receiving certification as a Best Christian Workplace.
“I am thrilled to announce that Community Bible Study is certified as a Best Christian Workplace in their first year of participation” said Al Loper, President of BCWI. “The engagement level of the CBS staff to the ministry is exceptional and a tribute their long history of servant leadership.”
Mr. Loper continued, “The spiritual depth of ministry leadership is clearly recognized and appreciated by staff. After all, doesn’t everyone want to work in an environment where leaders demonstrate love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control?”
For almost 40 years, Community Bible Study has taught the Word of God through grace filled, in-depth, community-based Bible studies to men, women, and children. With nearly 700 classes in the United States as well as classes in more than 70 countries, the Community Bible Study curriculum has been translated into more than 50 languages.
Executive Director of Community Bible Study Camilla Seabolt said, “We are so grateful to Al Lopus, Best Christian Workplaces and most especially the Lord for helping us to become qualified as a BCWI. We would highly recommend BCWI for any ministry seeking to serve Him more effectively.”
Community Bible Study makes every effort to stand in the center of the mainstream of historic Christianity, concentrating on the essentials of the Christian faith rather than denominational distinctives. Community Bible Study respects different theological views, preferring to focus on helping people to know God through His Word, grow deeper in their relationships with Jesus, and become transformed into His likeness.
