The mission of the Center for Bold Action is to equip men and women to hold Christ-like beliefs and turn them into actions that enhance the quality of life of all people they encounter.
CBA has two divisions: (1) Outreach to the mission field most neglected by the American church: the men and women living in long-term care facilities. It does this by education and the development of materials that offer meaningful enrichment and stimulate hope and faith. This is the area of interest and expertise of Diana Walters, PhD (Mrs. Rich) whose doctoral research demonstrated how biblical teaching could use Montessori principles to enliven cognition, stimulate recall, and promote conversation.
The other division, Rich’s area, is associated with mental health and human relations issues. His courses are on subjects that are of practical value and often of immediate need. For example, his first course, Anger Storms, explains where anger comes from, how to deal with it when it begins to creep in, how to reduce and resolve it, the use of indignation, and how to manage an angry person.
