These are exciting weeks as the first National Directors Institute gets underway here at International Headquarters. There are 19 directors in attendance representing all eight CEF regions.
The 2014 fall session of the Children’s Ministries Institute began on August 21. This is the 159th CMI class held in the states since the Institute began here in 1945.
CEF ministry was begun in Israel in 1951 by USA-sent missionary Matilda Alexander.
The TRAINING of individuals multiplies our ministry and enables us to reach many more children with the Gospel than we otherwise could. For the past eight years we have trained over 250,000 TEACHERS annually. Training is vital if we are to see more children reached for His glory.
EQUIPPING our workers with quality literature is ESSENTIAL to effective outreach. Our overseas regional directors confirm that one of the reasons we have been able to expand ministry each of the past ten years is because of the literature being provided FREE OF CHARGE to trained teachers. We are also distributing literature in the USA at NO COST to hundreds of thousands of children.
