The Church By the Side of the Road has been mission minded from the very beginning.  Founded in 1933 we immediately began supporting our first missionaries, Louis & Eileen Johnson, serving in Borneo (now part of Indonesia).  Over the past 79+ years a host of missionaries, both overseas and at home, have been sent out from CBSR. 
After much prayer and consideration, the Missions Board decided in 2006 to narrow our missions focus to five specific areas.   By increasing support, commitment and involvement, our goal is to increase our long-term impact. 
CBSR’s five major missions focus are:
  • India - The Ministry of V.A Thampy
    (specifically the Ladies Two By Two Ministry)
  • Malawi  - The Training Center and Staff

  • Brazil - Evangelical Mission

  • Uganda/Sudan - World Outreach Ministry Foundation and
    Seguku Prison Ministry

  • Home/Urban Missions
