CMT is a team of self-funded Missionaries who serve for at least 3 months to two years or more. They provide their own support in an assigned ministry that supports the Colorado Baptist General Convention’s goal that all people in Colorado or visiting Colorado will have an opportunity to hear and a chance to respond to the Gospel. The assignment comes through the Colorado Missions Team office of the Colorado Baptist General Convention.

The Plan


  1. CMT Missionaries serve full-time on a continuous basis in their mission assignments.

  2. The service is for a minimum of three months consecutively and may renew their ministry service indefinitely.

  3. The missionary will provide their own support by raising financial support from family, friends, and related churches, or through retirement income.

  4. CMT Tentmakers use gainful employment to support their ministry bivocationally.
