Families in Training

Acknowledging that couples need to develop complementary skills in team ministry and that children need to be integrated into the CFOT experience, many opportunities are provided to discover, affirm, own and exercise appreciation for cultural differences, individual personalities and spiritual gifts within the family and community contexts. Families may enjoy normal family life through shared mealtimes, devotional practices, worship experiences and the nurture of Christian values in daily life, whether in the home, in the child care center, at school or within the general CFOT environment.

The CFOT Campus Ministries Office assists cadet, staff and officer parents in the nurture of their children as disciples of Jesus Christ and soldiers of The Salvation Army by coordinating the planning and implementation of youth programs, recruiting and supervising group leaders and cultivating a pastoral relationship with each child.
