CMF's future plans – 2020 ACTIVE Vision

Message from CEO Peter Saunders
CMF exists to unite and equip Christian doctors and nurses to live and speak for Jesus Christ and last year we launched our ACTIVE 2020 Vision with the theme 'Connect & Grow, Speak & Serve'. This edition of CMF News reports much to encourage and excite - our biggest ever Student Conference with almost 500 attendees, a growing nurses' ministry with our first book for Christian nurses, refreshed resources for evangelism and a new International Track. This year we aim to achieve the following:
  • Our Head of Student Ministries, John Greenall, will step up into the new role of 'National Field Director' to spearhead CMF's regional development and implement a new 'high-impact' volunteer programme with teams of speakers, media spokespeople, writers and evangelists.
  • A new Head of Student Ministries will work under John in leading our rapidly growing student ministry.
  • Two new volunteer regional directors will pilot a projects in two of CMF's twelve regions.
  • The Deep:ER volunteer programme will expand from six to 15 part-time voluntary workers to support all of CMF's six ministry departments.
  • Four volunteer associate staffworkers will give two days a week to serve doctors, students and nurses.
  • A new training platform will be launched with online modules including videos, articles and study guides.
  • A new evangelism and apologetics initiative with training, resources and events.
  • A new Head of Graduate Ministries to take over from Pablo Fernandez, who retires in October 2017.
These developments will provide a springboard for further developments over the next five years as we expand the Deep:ER programme, eventually appoint twelve volunteer area team directors, expand our voluntary Associate Staffworker programme across graduate, student and nurses departments and appoint part-time heads for training and evangelism.

These various changes will involve some CMF staff changing roles, new people being appointed and many others with the necessary gifts and time stepping up into key volunteer roles.It will also require a 12% increase in CMF's baseline income -from £1.3m to £1.46m annually over the next five years. Currently 32% of CMF's £1.3m income is given by just 250 of our 6,000 doctor and nurse members. To raise the additional £160k per year we need others to join them: ten more people to give at the level of our top 20 givers, 20 more to give at the level of our next 30 top givers and 50 to give at the level of our next 200 givers. Might God be calling you to give of your time or resources to make this happen? Or might you offer CMF an interest free loan to help bridge the gap in order that we might start right away?

Please pray for all these developments - that God would raise up the needed people and resources - and for wisdom for the board and senior staff as they take the vision forward.

'Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,' says the LORD Almighty, 'and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it' (Malachi 3:10).
