Couples for Christ (CFC) is a movement intended for the renewal and strengthening of Christian family life. The members have committed themselves to the Lord and to one another so that they may grow in maturity as men and women of God and fulfill their primary vocation of raising up families under the lordship of Jesus Christ and for the service of the Kingdom of God.
CFC is a work of Christ which raises up Christian couples and establishes Christian families committed to the work of evangelization, winning the world for Christ and total human liberation through the power of the Holy Spirit.
CFC believes that God is working powerfully in the world today and is moving to accomplish His “plan for the fullness of time, to sum up all things in Christ, in heaven, and on earth” (Eph 1:10). In this task, God calls upon Christian families to be light and leaven in the world.
SFC aims to provide a Christian support environment for single men and women who are at the crossroads of their state of life, choosing between marriage, a religious vocation, or single blessedness.
SFC as a support environment
- teaches the individual the right values to build their future in;
- surrounds the individual with friends who are well meaning and have a positive influence;
- provides the individual with opportunities to meet potential partners in life who believe in the same Christian goals and values;
- involves the individual in service that prepares them for the responsibility of marriage and family life; and
- helps those with a vocation for the priesthood or religious life to discern their calling.
Entry point to the CFC Singles for Christ program is through a Christian Life Program (CLP). Pastoral formation is being given to the singles after the CLP through household meetings, assemblies, teachings and trainings, international conferences, discernment seminars, Singles Enrichment Retreat, and many more teachings directed towards the maturing needs of young, single individuals.
YFC aims to provide a Christian support environment for young teenagers between 13 to 21 years of age.
The program is oriented towards meeting the needs of our young people to belong, to be motivated, to be useful, to be good examples, and to be Christian witnesses. It has put a premium on four characteristics: fun, friendship, faith, and free; but responsible expression.
YFC's future is directed towards giving the youth a worthwhile cause to support as we seek to address, in our small way, the plight of the poor and the less privileged and the social and environmental issues that trample on the youth's human dignity: abortion, drugs, fraternity violence, sexual immorality, corruption, and even the rape of our natural resources.
Entry point to the CFC Youth for Christ program is through a Youth camp. Pastoral formation is being given to the youth after the camp through household meetings, assemblies, teachings and trainings, international conferences, youth forums, and other interesting and dynamic activities dedicated to the holistic development of the youth.
