The primary vehicle for training CFM Coordinators is CFM University. Utilizing state-of-the-art online technology (through the “Moodle” learning management system), students are required to take an entrance exam, two courses … CFM 101 and CFM 201 … and also attend a four-day, in-person Practicum in order to be equipped to undertake the development of a CFM, as well as to fulfill the training requirements for becoming part of the CFM NETWORK. CFM University is academically invigorating, visually engaging and deeply rewarding as the Lord touches students’ hearts through the challenging content and rich relationships developed.

Community Freedom Ministry (CFM)
A CFM is started by an individual, couple or group of individuals who desire to create a “freedom presence” in their home church or hometown. This “freedom presence” is an environment of grace and truth, under church authority where three things typically occur. First, there is teaching of the message of freedom, as explained in the best-selling books by Dr. Neil Andeson, Victory Over the Darkness and The Bondage Breaker. Second, the CFM is involved in taking people through the helpful, transferrable ministry tool, The Steps to Freedom in Christ. And third, the CFM provides training for individuals desiring to become better equipped at helping people discover spiritual freedom through using The Steps to Freedom in Christ.
Community Freedom Ministry Associate (CFMA)
A CFMA is an individual who has completed the Coordinator track of FICM’s online institute, CFM University and has become part of the CFM NETWORK. The online portion of CFMU includes an exam based on Victory Over the Darkness and The Bondage Breaker; a module on how to form and lead a ministry team; and two online courses (with quizzes and reflection questions), CFM 101 and CFM 201. The rest of the Coordinator track of CFMU is a four-day face-to-face Practicum designed for encouragement, equipping, relational connections and skill-development necessary to start and grow a CFM.
Once an individual completes the Coordinator track, he or she can apply to become (at no cost) part of the CFM NETWORK. This requires consent and approval from that individual’s church leadership to begin the CFM at that church. Once that consent and approval are granted in writing and sent to our FICM-USA office, the individual becomes an official CFMA…part of the growing CFM NETWORK of CFMAs nationwide.
Becoming part of the CFM NETWORK entitles CFMAs to participation in our national prayer network; a 30% discount on FICM materials purchased through our ministry bookstore; an automatic invitation to all FICM national and international events; and much more!
