About Partnerships with CBS
- We emphasize partnerships in our priority areas. We are interested in continuing conversations that align with our priorities: Indigenous Peoples, Aging population, Next Generation, New Immigrants, Urban Ministry and Chaplaincy.
- This is a formal but flexible process. The partnering organization signs a short-term (sometimes renewable or extendable) Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).
- CBS has several Bible resources that can be made available to our partners (for example, Word of Welcome Bibles, Camp Bibles, Special Edition Partnership NTs, Gospels). We may also consider the need and capacity for creating new resources to best respond to the needs of a potential partner and their beneficiaries.
- Partners are encouraged to report back every three months with feedback/stories about the impact of the Scriptures.
Stories from the Field
Over 1.6 million people in Canada are from Indigenous groups, 63% of whom self-identify as Christians. Mourning the loss of their language and wanting to preserve it for their children, a team of women, some over the age of 80, began translating the Old Testament into Inupiaq. They are now supported by CBS translation specialists but at the outset they had no external guidance. In the backdrop of the beautiful Alaskan landscape, listen to them share their story of Inupiaq Scripture translation.
The Bible-based curriculum for groups includes basic mental health concepts. The group sessions and personal work help participants to identify their pain, share their suffering, bring their pain to the cross of Christ for healing, and, for cases where the trauma was caused by the actions of another person, learn to forgive their oppressors.
