The BCBP was formed in July 1980 by a group of renewed Christian businessmen who gathered for breakfast with the intention of supporting each other in the practice of Christian values in the marketplace. They began to meet every Wednesday at the Makati Sports Club.

In Zamboanga City, the BCBP has joint breakfast every first Saturday of the month and Men’s breakfast every 3rd Saturday of the month at the Lotus Restaurant, Grand Astoria Hotel at 7:30 a.m. since May 29, 1999.
