ChristianTrade International returns to CBA

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – ChristianTrade Association International ceased operations June 30, and CBA, the Association for Christian Retail, has begun to transition international initiatives back to CBA. ChristianTrade spun off from CBA in 2005.

ChristianTrade’s closing will not affect the Aug. 22-23 Korea Christian Rights Fair in Seoul, South Korea, or other local chapter programs and initiatives.

To help ensure the international mission continues CBA is providing ChristianTrade’s members options to continue existing memberships and benefits without charge directly with CBA.

“We are very saddened by ChristianTrade’s closing, but CBA wants to see the work continue. Our desire is to maintain international services and possibly create something new,” said CBA President Curtis Riskey.

ChristianTrade Chairman Jean-Luc Cosnard, publisher of Editions Vida in Nimes, France, said ChristianTrade has furthered Christian-product distribution by developing local organizations that support Christian publishing and distribution around the world.
