Christian Military Fellowship

Volunteer opportunities

Contact

Description

Contacts are CMF members, associate members, or ministry partners from other Christian organizations who have volunteered to serve as "link-ups" where no formal CMF fellowship exists. They serve by referring newly-arrived individuals or families to Christian activities that will provide fellowship and nurture. Christians involved in other ministries who are willing to serve as referrals for U.S. military personnel are also listed as "Contacts." They might be chaplains, pastors, para-church staff or any believer interested in serving this way.

Here are some key tasks:

●  Welcome transiting personnel, new arrivals, or those just finding out about CMF.
●  Build relationships with the chaplain(s) and the chaplain team.
●  Become an expert on the local area so that you can help CMF members get settled or feel welcome.
●  Communicate with the CMF Home Office by sharing prayer requests, directory updates, local changes (chaplains, ministry opportunities, etc.

Hospitality Home Contact

Location:  Where God has placed you.

Description

Hospitality Home Contacts are CMF members, associate members, or ministry partners from other Christian organizations who, in addition to acting as contacts, have the willingness to open their homes to traveling CMF members in a "bed-and-breakfast" fashion.

Here are some key tasks:

●  You are willing to host someone for a meal or overnight stay.
●  A bed and/or fellowship over a meal for those who are passing through, visiting, or moving into the area.
●  The opportunity for others to see Christian love in action—each of you have various giftings, and you don’t have to have a perfect home to welcome strangers in…you need the Spirit of Christ dwelling within you!
●  Boundaries.  Know what is acceptable to you and communicate clearly if your conscience or home will be strained/harmed by your guests.  Be gracious but share honestly.
●  Send your guests out by praying for them and offering a coffee for the road. If appropriate, stay in touch.

Local Leader

Local Leader

Description:
Local Leaders are CMF members who are involved in a formal CMF ministry in their area. They also serve as liaisons between their CMF group, area Chaplain(s), other military ministries and the CMF Home Office. They lead local CMF activities. These are people who are actively involved in CMF and are convinced of their calling to serve the Lord through this ministry. Their responsibilities also include coordinating and organizing staff visits, or other local CMF events.

The Local Leader of a CMF fellowship will start, sustain, and hand off the baton of leadership for a specific CMF fellowship body.  A Local Leader should seek to live faithfully before the face of God using all of Scripture as our guide, but we can look at passages such as Titus 1:5-9; 2:2 (men), and Titus 2:3-5 (women) for specifics.

● Lead a gathering of the military community to study the Scripture and join in prayer.
● Stay in communication with local participants (message, email, voice, personal visit, mail). Build relationships.
● Welcome new arrivals, Temporary Duty personnel, and those who just discovered that CMF exists.
● Build relationships with the chaplain(s) and the chaplain team.
● Communicate with the CMF Home Office and Director of Field Ministries by sharing prayer requests, moves, rank changes, etc.
● Develop an understanding of why CMF has membership, then help others think through and pray about joining CMF.
● Learn how CMF funds its various ministries and maintains financial integrity.
● Encourage the local body to participate in military ministry by worshipfully sharing a portion of their monthly offerings with CMF.
● Help connect Temporary Duty, deploying, and transferring personnel to CMF leaders, contacts, hospitality homes.
● Notify the Home Office when an CMF Directory update is needed.
● Pray for, and act on, the opportunity to develop the next Local Leader, ensuring a handoff when you depart.
