Meet the Staff
The first part of involvement has been and will continue to be: getting to know the people with whom you are ministering. Here at Child Evangelism Fellowship we are not naïve enough to think we are excluded, but often this process begins with you! Call and set up an appointment, invite CEF to participate in your missions conference, or to present at your church in a Sunday School class or missions moment! The local CEF office is staffed with three individuals, some you may have never met; will you take the first step and give us a call?
Sponsor a Summer Missionary
Each year, several teens and young adults choose to spend their summer serving the Lord. They do this by teaching backyard Bible clubs to kids, in our own backyard, who are in need of saving grace. These teens spend their summer serving as home-based missionaries rather than getting a summer job! It is an incredible blessing to see young people setting aside their summer for the Lord! However, many of these teens are still in need of finances. Would your church choose to sponsor a summer missionary this year? The cost is roughly $2000 and lots of prayer, the reward is so much more! Please give us a call for the name and information pertaining to a young missionary in need of your support! 🙂
Adopt a School
Many organizations encourage individuals to adopt a child from various countries, here at CEF we are far more ambitious…in a good way! Why adopt one child, when you can adopt a whole school of children? 🙂 Partnering with CEF, you and your church can start an after-school Good News Club at a school near you. The process is a tad more than administrative, but once you are in, the teaching and time with the children seals the deal! Your church can invite every child in attendance to come for services on Sunday, but more importantly, you can begin to train up young godly individuals! Contact us for more information on this exciting opportunity.
Join the Committee
In some aspects we have our own circus and we would love for you to join! Perhaps this sounds a bit strange, but as staff we would be greatly excited to have a committee meeting full of life and passion! The committee oversees the functions of the clowns, or staff if you prefer :), and the various aspects of the ministry! As a member of the committee, you would need to participate in the monthly meetings as well as lend active involvement to the ministry. Will you consider applying?
Host a 5-Day Club
Every circus needs a ring leader running the show under the big top! In the same way, every neighborhood needs someone, or a group of “someones”, steering the children toward the Lord. Through a 5-Day Club, you can do just that! Invite the kids, offer a snack, and participate as trained teens and young adults teach Gospel truths. It probably will not be as tight as squishing everyone in a clown car, but when the kids crowd in you never know what exactly to expect! Call and schedule your club, then wait and see what God can do in your own backyard!
Take a Shift at the Fair (and run with it!)
Generally, a circus is filled with many attractions and acts, but so are many county fairs. Among the crowds and noisy tents, you just might find a Gospel Face Painting tent run by dedicated volunteers! You could be one of the painters sharing the Gospel. You need not be a lion tamer or a trapeze artist, although those skills may come in handy when it comes to calming the antsy ones down, you just need a willing heart and a teachable spirit! So call to take a shift for a run!
