CEF is a volunteer-driven missionary organization. It is the largest organization serving children in the world and located in all but 1 country in the world.
Those volunteer missionaries are from all walks of life, and from different churches. They have a love for Jesus and a love of children. People ask what the requirements are to be a volunteer. It is really simple.
A testimony of salvation by Jesus Christ
A walk with God
A call to work with children
A faithful commitment to serve a couple of hours a week
An ability to learn from, and work with others
No criminal record
That’s it. No kid experience, no teaching experience, no special talents required. Volunteer missionaries run the club, teach the children, play with the children, listen to the children, pray with the children, interact with parents and teachers.
If you are interested, contact the ministry coordinator to visit a Good News Club. CEF provides a fantastic training program and provides the tools and resources to reach the children you would work with.
One of the advantages of being part of an organization that has been around for over 80 years is that we have a system that works. It was been refined over the years, the good kept and the bad thrown out. We have training programs, curriculum and support resources that are second to none.
If you come with a willing heart and good attitude and give a few hours a week, we assure you that you will never be the same. The kids will touch you, God will use you and you might just become addicted to the feeling.
