The BBM National Partnership Program

The BBM National Partnership Program provides assistance to churches around the country who wish to launch a BBM group in their church community. The Building Better Moms (BBM) program began in Leawood, KS at The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection. The Leawood BBM program is the home base for BBM National.

A mission of The Church of the Resurrection is to assist with the revival of the mainline church. We believe BBM is one of the best ways to attract women, followed by their families, into your church! In 2009, a team examined how BBM could be structured to serve not only a broader range of women in Leawood, but also be shared with churches around the country. Over the next several years, BBM grew into more than we could have imagined with over 700 women participating in Leawood, KS as well as National BBM Partners across the country from Oregon to Florida.

“Be careful what you ask God for… BBM grew into more than we could have ever imagined.”


The launch of a new BBM program unfolds over several months of planning and preparation, which leads to a registration kick off weekend–ideally during Mother’s Day weekend (May) for all BBM National Partners around the country. Leadership Team training and launch preparation meetings are held, followed by the first BBM meeting of the program year.

Every year, BBM has a “theme” to guide us. The theme for all first year Partner churches is Imagine. We have spent the last several years imagining what might happen when we share BBM around the country, because we believe in the power of this program. We have seen this power first hand and it is exciting!

“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him.”   1 Corinthians 2:9

We invite you to imagine the possibilities . . .


New BBM programs are launching in churches around the country each year. Are you planning a future move? Do you have friends or family in another city that would enjoy a BBM group? Take a look at our BBM National Family!
