An offspring of one’s personal renewal and the deepening of relationships between spouses is the call to bring Christ to the other members of the family. The CFC Family Ministries is Couples for Christ’s response to building the Church of the Home. The family ministries look to the spiritual dimension of our life in the Lord. It focuses on internal formation and is designed to help us grow in holiness of life.
CFC Kids for Christ, CFC Youth for Christ, CFC Singles for Christ, CFC Handmaids of the Lord and CFC Servants of the Lord provide a support environment for every member of the family. A person moves form one ministry to the next, as his state of life changes. Thus, the whole life of a person while on this world is covered.
CFC Kids for Christ (KFC) aims to provide a Christian support environment for children of CFC and non-CFC who are between the ages of 4-12 years old. Owing to the wide age range covered by the ministry, we have separate programs for the Junior kids, those of ages 4-8 and Senior kids, those of 9-12.
Realizing that a program for kids needs to be simply understood, exciting and fun-filled, we have put a premium on four characteristics of the KFC Program.
- It is fun – activities are enjoyable and stimulate the child’s creativity, perception and sensitivity.
- It is build upon friendship – activities encourage members to build strong friendships with one another.
- It enhances faith – activities explain Christian faith elements in kids language
- It allows free but responsible expression – activities respect the kids for who and what they are and what they can be.
Entry point to the CFC Kids for Christ program is through a KFC Kid’s camp. Other dynamic activities such as Kid’s Village, Eco Camp, Champ camp, kid’s assemblies and family fun day follows after.

It has put a premium on four characteristics: it is Fun; it builds Friendships; it enhances the Faith; it allows the young 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.
