Children's Bible Ministry is a national, Bible-based ministry established in 1935.  CBM's goals are evangelism, discipleship and cooperation with local churches for follow-up. The work of CBM is supported by the gifts of churches and individuals.

The CBM of Maryland ( is headquartered in Elkridge, MD.  We count it a privilege to be available to help you and your church with:

Children's Evangelism
Training Workshops
Teaching Materials
Summer Missions
Mission Conferences
Special Events


CBM provides numerous opportunities for Christians to become involved in full-time work in the ministry. CBM workers are involved in teaching the Word of God, recruiting workers, training volunteers, managing and developing financial structures, and representing the ministry to local churches, educational administrators and school boards. As a result, they are ministering to children, teenagers, and parents. They also are involved in the spiritual development of local believers who benefit from the training and service opportunities offered them through CBM's ministry.

CBM History

In 1935 Mr. Walter Jensen, a graduate of Moody Bible Institute, founded Children's Bible Mission in response to his burden to reach boys and girls with the Gospel. His method was to go into the public schools and teach God's Word, motivating the children to learn and memorize Scripture by offering as an incentive the opportunity to attend a summer Bible camp. That first year 47 children earned the privilege and 16 accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior. The work of CBM Ministries, as it became known later, quickly spread from Florida to Pennsylvania, reaching thousands of public school boys and girls. 

Who Are We?

We are a non-denominational, non-profit organization whose aim is to encourage boys and girls, as well as men and women, to read the Bible and thus to know the Living Lord, the Lord of Life. We do not represent any particular church or group but rather seek to be in harmony with the Word of God and the God of the Word.
