The CFCM seeks to support congregations and faith-based organizations in strengthening families and communities so that they will be better equipped to encourage the development of strong faith.

The center's activities include research, continuing education, consulting, and resource development.

Based on this information, suggestions are then provided for how the church can better nurture the spiritual growth of its families.
