Who is CMF?

We are a global mission team serving in 25 countries around the world. Our mission is to create dynamic Christ-centered communities that transform the world.


CMF has remained faithful to Christ’s call to go out into the world and transform it for 68 years. Our leaders are always looking ahead to implement new strategies and move into new areas to share the gospel. Lives and communities can be transformed through the good news of the Gospel in any corner of the world, from the slums of Africa and India, to the universities of Europe, and in the schools and neighborhoods of Asia.

How do we do it?

Our mission strategies are culturally-appropriate, effective and reproducible.

We plant churches

CMF team members adapt to the cultures where they serve. They build relationships that lead to new faith communities. These churches train leaders, reproduce and become a starting point for transformation in the community.

We serve the poor

Recent statistics project that 66 percent of the world’s population will be urban by 2050. This will be the largest unreached people group in the world. CMF’s holistic ministries provide ways to break the bonds of poverty and demonstrate the love of Christ in urban areas all around the world. The results have been amazing!

We engage the marketplace

We engage the marketplace

CMF has worked for the past 15 years to implement “business as mission” principles as a strategy for working in three Asian countries that are closed to missionaries. Building relationships is the key to sharing the Gospel in these cultures, and our Marketplace Ministry team members have developed the long-term connections that open many doors for ministry and service.

Teamwork

All CMF personnel work as part of a team. Each team plans and fulfills its ministry goals together, and its members support and encourage one another. Their lives are rewarding, yet challenging, so we assess and prepare our team members to make sure they are a good fit for the work and ready to be part of a team.

Our team also includes US churches that provide financial support and with whom we partner to develop specific strategies and projects for transformation.

Our sending partners — the individuals and churches who make our ministries possible through their prayers, financial support and encouragement — are a key part of our team.

Our partnership also includes teamwork with mission colleagues on the field and with national Christians who are working toward the ongoing transformation of their communities.
