Christians Engaged in Faith Formation

CEF is an organization of laity and clergy who…

  • work or volunteer in faith formation ministries
  • connect with others in similar roles or ministries in peer learning environments
  • work collaboratively within the organization to collect, create and share knowledge and experience within and between communities.

The mission of CEF is to develop leaders in faith formation to equip people of all ages to live as disciples of Jesus Christ.

For more information about National CEF membership, events and resources, go to cefumc.org.
