Who We Are
Child Evangelism Fellowship®, also known as CEF®, is a Bible-centered, worldwide organization of born-again believers who are intentionally sharing the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ with children. The ministry is the largest evangelistic outreach to children in the world and is active in every state in the U.S. and in over 175 countries worldwide.
What We Do
CEF sponsors several evangelistic programs, but the three most identified with the organization are 3-hour 5-Day Clubs®, 1-hour Youth Challenge clubs®, and 1 1/2-hour Good News Clubs®. These exciting ministries take place in neighborhood settings such as homes, schools and community centers all over the world. During the fast-paced programs, trained volunteers use dynamic Bible lessons, songs, and games to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ in an engaging and accessible way. All our programs are offered free of charge.
Here in Santa Barbara County, the local CEF chapter runs an average of 4 summer programs and over 12 clubs during the school year, including some that meet weekly in our area public schools. Over half of the children who attend our programs come from non-believing or unchurched families.
