What is a Community Freedom Ministry?
A Community Freedom Ministry (CFM) is an environment of grace and truth, started by an individual, couple or group of individuals under church authority
seeking to establish and coordinate a “freedom presence” in their home church or hometown.
This “freedom presence” involves teaching the biblical message
of freedom (as taught in Dr. Neil Anderson’s books); taking people through The Steps to Freedom in Christ and; training individuals to use
The Steps to Freedom in Christ. Click the following link to view the brand new Community Freedom Ministry brochure: view the PDF.
How Does FICM Train People to Start & Coordinate CFMs?
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. Click here to find out more about CFM University or click here to enroll in CFM University now!
What is the CFM NETWORK?
Starting and growing a Community Freedom Ministry (CFM) is hard work. Watching lives transformed by Jesus Christ, the truth, is deeply satisfying
but it can be draining as well. We are exhorted in Scripture to “encourage one another day after day” (Hebrews 3:13) and so the CFM NETWORK was designed
to help meet that very real need.
The CFM NETWORK is a growing group of individuals all across the nation who have finished the training requirements of
CFM University and have applied for and been accepted as endorsed volunteers (Community Freedom Ministry Associates or CFMAs). CFM NETWORK participants
receive discounts on FICM resources as well as a variety of other perks. There is no charge to be part of the CFM NETWORK.
