Collaborative Catholic Formation Ministries (CCFM) was founded in August 2011 with the dual purpose of forming outstanding youth ministers for the Church, and providing excellent youth ministry to parishes of all sizes. Our staff works as a community to support each other and learn from one another in order to become the dedicated ministers that God has called us to be. You can use this website to learn about what God has set before us and how we are being led by the Spirit to answer this call. Read more about our mission.

You can also read through our blogs for inspiration and guidance. The blogs are written with youth ministers in mind, however, since we believe that all those who interact with youth impact them in some way, our blogs really offer something for everyone.

  Are you seeking an encounter with God? Have you been looking for an opportunity to pray and grow with others?

Encounter is a night of praise & worship with Eucharistic Adoration. The night features a short talk and the opportunity to pray with others. All are welcome to this free event.

Email prayer@ccfm.us with your intentions so that our staff can pray for you. We begin each morning praying as a team, and we would love to include your intentions in that time!



There is power in prayer, and your prayers are very important to the CCFM team. We have come into existence because of prayer and we hope to be an answer to prayers. Your continued prayers give us the grace to continue in this ministry. We ask that you remember us and our ministries in your daily prayer. If you would like to join the prayer team, email Emily at etrutter@ccfm.us to receive our monthly prayer newsletters.
