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.
