CEF has different types of evangelistic programs, but the three most identified with the organization are:
These exciting ministries take place in schools, churches, community centers and homes all over the world. These fast-paced, one or 1.5-hour programs are designed to bring the Gospel of Christ to children on their level in their environment.
Along with the clubs, CEF also has fair, camping, open-air, internet and correspondence outreach programs for children. Last year through these combined ministries over 10 million children worldwide heard the good news with over one million making professions of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
CEF provides classes to train their workers and other Christians who are burdened for evangelizing children. The Children’s Ministries Institute®, a modular 3-month course located at CEF International Headquarters in Warrenton, Missouri, is dedicated to providing quality, practical training for those called of God to take the Gospel message to children. Similar training is offered in various locations around the world.
CEF Press® produces and distributes Bible and missionary lessons and related materials for use in teaching children to help accomplish the goals of the ministry. Teaching materials are available to the public. Visit our web store. Many products are translated into some 189 different languages and distributed around the world.
An exciting program for teenagers is Christian Youth in Action® (CYIA™). In June all across the USA thousands of young people are trained to conduct 5-Day Club. 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 to teach 5-Day Club in large urban centers and in foreign countries. This program offers challenging, oftentimes life-changing experiences that God has used to spiritually enrich many lives.
