Each month, the Mission Committee will highlight one or more of the organizations we support financially, physically, and/or prayerfully.
The March Spotlight Mission is Child Evangelism Fellowship.
Child Evangelism Fellowship is a Bible-centered organization composed of born–again believers whose purpose is to evangelize boys and girls with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and to establish (disciple) them in the Word of God and in the local church for Christian Living.
CEF has many different ministries for children, but the primary ones are the Good News Club and the 5-Day Club. The Good News Club and the 5-Day Club ministries take place in neighborhood settings such as homes, backyards, schools, and community centers all over the world. These fast-paced, one-hour programs are designed to bring the Gospel of Christ to children on their level in their environment. Along with these clubs, CEF also has fair, camping, open-air, and internet ministries for children. Last year through these combined ministries over 25.4 million children worldwide heard the Good News.
CEF also has an exciting program for teenagers called Christian Youth in Action. In June all across the USA thousands of young people are trained to conduct 5–Day Clubs. Throughout the summer they have many opportunities to present the Gospel to boys and girls, experiencing the joy of leading others to the Lord.
An additional summer opportunity is Summer Missions. College–age adults are trained and teach 5–Day Clubs in large urban centers and in foreign countries. This program offers challenging, life–changing experiences that God has used to spiritually enrich many lives.
