The CBN Culture

CBN is a mission-driven ministry whose objective is to proclaim Jesus Christ throughout the world. At the same time, CBN is recognized as a professionally accomplished leader in the field of media and communications. This unique combination provides a work environment that allows team members to grow both professionally and spiritually. The mission of CBN is to help meet both the spiritual and physical needs of people. For CBN team members, this means they can end each workday knowing they have been part of something profoundly important. At CBN, a "job" is not as much a job as it is a calling!

Daily Chapel

Recognizing the importance of maintaining a strong commitment to the spiritual priorities of CBN, employees gather each day for a time of worship, prayer and sharing from God's Word. Chapel is considered part of the paid workday.


CBN encourages employees to take time away from their normal work schedule for spiritual, mental and physical refreshment. Vacation is awarded as follows:

  • Full-time regular exempt employees accrue 138 hours per year.
  • Full-time regular non-exempt employees accrue 96 hours per year (138 hours per year after five years of service).
  • Part-time regular employees averaging 20+ hours per week accrue 48 hours per year.
  • Full-time regular exempt and non-exempt employees who have completed 6 years of service accrue additional hours of vacation each year up to a maximum of 177 hours.
  • Part-time regular employees who have completed 6 years of service accrue additional hours of vacation each year up to a maximum of 90 hours.

Vacation hours are accrued on a monthly basis.

  • New Year's Day (half day)*

* On these days, employees gather for a time of worship, prayer and communion.
