Christian Fellowship (CF) began in November 1973 as a ‘short-term’ mission. The focus was to have a group that would help Christian students support each other within Bloomingdale High School, reach out to other students with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and look for fun activities for students. 

CF has since expanded to include students from different area schools, and also a middle school ministry.  CF’s focus is still to bring the Gospel to middle and high school-age young people, and encourage them to become involved in local churches.
