What We Do
Annual CFC Umpire & Umpire Wives Retreats
The CFC ministry hosts an annual weekend-long retreat in Bells, Texas to minister to professional umpires and their wives. The first CFC retreat was held in Falls Creek, Oklahoma in 2003 with 12 professional umpires in attendance. In 2012, CFC will host the 10th annual retreat. Over the years, the retreat ministry has grown to serve dozens of MLB and MiLB umpires, along with their wives.
CFC Spring Training Ministries
CFC provides a special Outreach Night and weekly Bible studies for MLB and MiLB umpires during Spring Training camps held in Arizona and Florida.
Baseball Regular Season CFC Discipleship
MLB and MiLB umpires are encouraged throughout the long baseball season to continue building their Christian faith and supporting each other through Christian brotherhood. Tools used to reach umpires during the season include weekly prayer conference calls, weekly Bible-studies via email and video-conferencing, and in-person visits from the CFC pastoral team and ministry volunteers.
