The Christian Military Fellowship (CMF), a 501(c)(3) organization[1], states on its website that it "supports United States military personnel and their families, worldwide, with prayer, Bible studies, local fellowships, conferences, referrals, free literature, correspondence, hospitality, and Christian resources."[2]

"Since our inception, May 1977, Christian Military Fellowship has remained true to our calling to give each and every person in or associated with the armed forces of the United States the chance to say yes to the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ," the CMF website states on its Donation page.[3]

Mission

CMF is "an association of believers who are committed to evangelizing the United States armed forces and discipling Christians who are in the military. CMF involves all elements of that society including all ranks, family members, and civilian employees.

"Within the military society, our members, staff and constituents work to introduce people to Jesus Christ and to help Christians grow in obedience to the Great Commission of our Lord, Who said, 'All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.' (Matthew 28:18-20, NKJV) These objectives are emphasized by the CMF motto: To Win...To Disciple...To Equip...To Win."[4]
