Join us in mission by supporting one of our missionaries!
These amazing young adults dedicate one week – 10 weeks of their lives to serving in communities that are underprivileged or recovering from natural disasters. As missionary disciples, they evangelize by word and action, helping the mission groups who come to serve with us to encounter Christ in the Sacraments, the people we are serving, and in each other. CMT missionaries wear many hats as they engage in personal and team prayer, home, church, and school repair, community outreach projects, and youth ministry. Read more about our mission leaders and prayerfully consider making a sacrificial donation. Your donation covers the living expenses, travel expenses, and stipends for the mission leaders, which allows us to not pass these costs on to the groups. Thank you for helping us keep participant fees low for young people who desire to serve our Lord on mission!
Francesca Ani began her journey to Christian Contemporary music at the tender age of 5 years old. From the time she could speak, Francesca was singing. In 2015, Francesca’s honest and heartfelt style won over the judges of a Tampa Bay Talent Search. Inspired by women such as Lauren Daigle and Carole King, in 2016 Francesca released her first pop EP, “Open Your Arms.” Although her heart always called her to perform, her faith ultimately led her to use her gift for more than just entertainment. Francesca’s goal is to convey the message of the gospel with light and joy for any listener no matter their faith. Francesca is currently focusing on youth ministry and youth worship around the greater Tampa area.

My Favorite bible verse is constantly changing! Right now it’s John 15. Pruning is a good thing, friends 🙂
I’m only 5 feet tall, still hoping to hit a late growth spurt.
I work at a Catholic radio station in Tampa, Florida!
Movies with dogs make me cry. This also includes commercials for movies about dogs.
I live off The Office, Friends, and Schitt’s Creek.
Do I go to Disney way more than the socially acceptable amount? Oh definitely… but that’s okay.

Greetings! My name is Briana Claire! Florida is my home sweet home. I am currently taking a break from my healthcare job to discern God’s will for my life! My hobbies are kayaking, writing music, and playing guitar at coffee shops and nursing homes! From my youth, I have given my musical gifts at the service of Christ and His Church! I’m excited to lead us in worship and serve with you all in Panama City, FL and Lake Charles, LA! My favorite saint is currently on the road to sainthood, Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati! Pier Giorgio was 24 years old when he died (same age as me right now! J). He was an adventurous young man who prayed with his friends, served the poor, and sought social reform. My favorite quote is “Verso L’alto”, in English it translates to “ To the heights”.
