What Is a Community Freedom Ministry?

A Community Freedom Ministry (CFM) is a teaching 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.

What’s New About the CFM Strategy?

FICM has always been committed to teaching the message of freedom, taking people through
The Steps to Freedom in Christ and training individuals to use the “Steps” in their personal ministries. That has never changed. What has changed and is new (since 2010) is the vehicle by which people across the nation can be trained to not only help individuals find freedom, but also start and grow a healthy, viable freedom ministry in their home church or hometown.

For years, God’s people have been encouraged and strengthened by the books and teaching
conferences FICM has produced and conducted. And many have learned how to minister freedom to others through our “encourager training.” But the most common heart cry of people over the years has been, “How do I get this started back home?” Now FICM-USA has the tools and training needed to answer that question!

How Does FICM Train People to Start and Grow a CFM?

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.
