Christian Mortgage Brokers Association Launches Nationwide!

BUSINESS WIRE --When most people think of mortgage brokers the last thing they think about is Christianity. Yet a group of brokers have banded together with a simple goal: To evangelize the mortgage industry with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

President Brian Peart explains the origin of the Christian Mortgage Brokers Association (CMBA) and their vision: Over the years I have met thousands of mortgage people at my conferences and trade shows and I have always been surprised at the number of Christians. The challenge is that few have the knowledge, methods, and tools to share their Faith in the workplace where it is desperately needed. And our industry really does need this ministry. There are a lot of people hurting out there right now, who need the love, grace and hope that comes from a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Our members believe its up to us to reach out. We can not be content to sit in church on Sunday and let the Pastor do all the evangelizing; we need to take the Gospel message into the workplace.

Peart has personally inspired hundreds of his clients to follow Jesus Christ through his mortgage business and conferences. Now hes hoping to expand that reach to others in his industry. And the results have been impressive so far. In the first several weeks the CMBA has experienced a flood of new members and held the first nationwide Bible study in mortgage history.

Where it goes from here is anybodys guess. Already, comments are being made about mixing religion and business. But Peart is quick to point out, Our ministry is free. People can go to the website at and post prayer requests, get links to helpful sites, and read encouraging messages and even listen to bi-monthly Bible Studies. I believe the industry is ready and I think that the Lord is up to BIG things in the mortgage and real estate industries. We are just excited to be a part of it!
