Christian Formation Committee
The purpose of the Christian Formation Committee (CFC) is to assist the members of the Central Plains Mennonite Conference to grow continually in Christ-likeness in order to embody a holistic witness to the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. We do this by promoting Christian formation resources and equipping formation leaders.
Conference Minister for Christian Formation, Amanda Bleichty, works with CFC.
Our primary responsibilities are to...
...promote resources for Christian formation.
We promote Mennonite (and theologically compatible) curricula, books, videos, web sites, music, worship resources, prayer books, etc.
A sampling of the kinds of topics we recommend resources for: Bible study, prayer, catechesis, conscientious objection, mission, kids clubs, nonviolence, parenting, restorative justice, and stewardship.
...equip people to do Christian formation.
We aim to help Sunday School teachers, Bible study leaders, youth sponsors, Christian Education/Nurture/Formation Committees, kids club leaders, mentors, parents and pastors as they nurture faith in people at every stage in life and in any congregational setting, including the home.
