The heart and soul of the craftsmen for Christ ministry can be summed up like this,
“Meeting others needs with the love of Christ”. Since the very first project in 1990 CFC has been committed to using Gods resources of skills, materials, talents, food, and hearts that are willing to serve to meet the needs of others. Our primary work focuses on the physical needs of widows, the elderly, the disabled, and the fatherless. We construct wheel chair ramps, repair leaks, install HVAC equipment, repair roofs, repair fences, install grab bars, repair autos, and various other tasks when deemed necessary. CFC has 12 chapters in three states, that are represented by nine different churches.
CFC is a 501 3-c Federal Non-profit agency that was incorporated in 1997.
CFC receives requests daily and of course not all of the needs can be meet, but each request is prayed for.
A site visit will take place and it as this time the CFC volunteers will access and prioritize the needs. After much prayer CFC matches our resources to the need, and when all of the resources of skills, materials and the time to do the work are provided CFC begins the work. Each project begins and ends with prayer. It is during this prayer time that real fruit of our labor is produced. Our desire is to build lasting relationships with the people that we help.
Our desire to keep these relationships alive has been maintained by our Food Ministry. CFC receives and redistributes more than 200 semi loads of food annually. Food Ministry In 1997 CFC teamed up with Operation Blessing and began receiving large quantities of food and house hold items. These items were first used to help those who were recovering from the floods in Northern California. With the help of a health care grant and North Valley Calvary Chapel, CFC constructed it’s own Warehouse / Office in Yuba City California, on the property of North Valley Calvary Chapel. This facility has become the nervecenter of the CFC ministry
CF meets weekly for mens fellowship and prayer.
Each chapter takes on a little different personality but the heartbeat of the ministry is the same.
