SF_Lebanon-4661DECATUR, Ga.—A portable photography exhibit highlighting the people and places of CBF Global Missions will be available to any Cooperative Baptist Fellowship church for up to a month at a time beginning this summer.

The nationally touring exhibit, titled “Faces of Beloved Community,” has been curated on behalf of the CBF Missions Council, drawing upon the best of thousands of photographs taken around the world. The exhibit includes 42 high-quality photographs reproduced on canvas for portability and ease of display.

There is no cost to acquire the exhibit, although each participating church is asked to cover the cost of shipping the photographs to the next location.

” This powerful exhibit shows the beauty, richness and diversity of CBF’s work and the people around the world who we are blessed to walk alongside,” said Martha Perusek, director of development for CBF. “A picture says a thousand words, and I know our congregations will be moved and inspired by the exhibit, knowing they play an important role in sharing the Gospel, touching lives and creating this beloved community.”

Each photo in the set measures 16 by 20 inches, and is suitable to be hung in a variety of settings. Both churches that have dedicated gallery spaces and those that do not will be able to use these photographs to tell the Global Missions story. The exhibit features not only photos of CBF missions, but also those of disaster response ministries as well as examples of new church starts and chaplaincy.

The exhibit will premiere at next week’s General Assembly in Dallas.
