Welcome to Santa Barbara County Chapter of Child Evangelism Fellowship also known as CEF. We are a Bible-centered, worldwide organization that is dedicated to seeing every child reached with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, discipled and established in a local church.
For more than 70 years God has been usingChild Evangelism Fellowship to bring the love of Jesus Christ to children around the world. The Word of God puts a high priority on children. They are near to God’s heart and we believe that He is uniquely concerned about their spiritual welfare. Without the foundation of a relationship with God and training in Biblical principles for life they are unequipped to face what life will throw at them.
With workers in 170 countries around the worldCEF® has personal, individual ministry with more than 10 million children last year. God has given us a passion to not only bring children into a right relationship with God, but to disciple them in His Word and establish them in Bible teaching churches so that they can become mature in their faith
Our local chapter has seen tremendous success. Having been in 10 public schools last year with over 300 children attending, over 30 professions of faith, and a handful of whole families now attending church regularly, we have seen God working in our community!
We reach kids through many different types of evangelistic programs, but the two most identified with the organization are 5-Day Club® and Good News Club®. These two exciting 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.
