CB Barthlow is a former loser. Saved at the age of 6, CB walked away from God as a teenager resulting in a 15 year battle with addiction that eventually cost him everything. At the age of 30, homeless, jobless and alone, he started life over again, in rehab. Now CB helps the discouraged, the broken and the hopeless to find their way to a relationship with Jesus Christ. He currently leads a brand new church plant in Denver, CO called beacon.
