Christian Business Men's Connection (CBMC) is an international evangelical Christian mission organization to reach out to businessmen. CBMC began in Chicago in 1930, joined with other similar groups to create a national organization in 1937, and moved its headquarters to Chattanooga, Tennessee in 1978.[1][2] Among its prominent early leaders was the industrialist R. G. LeTourneau.[3]

According to the organization there are now 18,000 members in 700 teams in the US, and international branches in over 70 countries with over 50,000 members.[1][4]
