“Jesse Irvin Overholtzer was the ‘unobtrusive little farmer’ who staked all on the premise—revolutionary in his day—that little children could be taught basic doctrines of the Scriptures and be won for Jesus Christ.” So begins The Indomitable Mr. O, the compelling book by Norman Rohrer about how God used J. Irvin Overholtzer to found Child Evangelism Fellowship, the world’s largest evangelistic outreach to children.
On May 18, 2012 at the organization’s International Headquarters in Warrenton,
CEF workers past and present—“the heirs of Mr. O’s vision” will gather for a 75th anniversary celebration to honor the past, look forward to the future and in everything give glory to God.
A special edition of the book, including a new photo section, is being printed for this milestone anniversary. Several engaging new chapters have been written by Beatrice Levanos, tracing the expansion of CEF from Mr. O’s death to the present. God’s faithfulness is demonstrated through amazing stories of the establishment and growth of the ministry on every continent.
“The evidence is in—Child Evangelism Fellowship has been God’s ministry from the beginning and what God begins, He will bring to completion. The great life and work of the founder goes on—reaching the children of each generation for Christ through the heirs of his vision. They follow the example of Christ, who said, ‘Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me; for of such is the kingdom of heaven’ (M atthew 19:14).
