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 the mission that God has set before us and how we are being led by the Spirit to answer this call. 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.
Oct 22: ENLISTED with Chris Bartlett
Enlisted is a night of talks, small groups, and games where youth in grades 6-12 are "called and equipped" to engage their Catholic faith. Enlisted 2014 will be at St. Anthony's Catholic Church in Bryan, TX from 6:00 to 9:00 pm.
With so many in the world lost or lonely, how do we bring them hope? You have the potential to make a difference in someone's life. God desires to use you in a powerful way in the lives of others and your peers, not just through your example but also through your words. Join us on Oct 22nd and learn how to use your own story to reach out to the youth around you. God is calling… come change the world.
