Partners Retreat

February 4-7, 2021
Reese and Linda Kauffman


We hope you will join us at the Sanibel Harbour Marriott in Sanibel, FL for the Child Evangelism Fellowship Partners Retreat. It is our desire to inform you about the ministry, celebrate what God has done, and be an encouragement to you.

Upon your arrival, you will be greeted by our hospitality staff who will help you get checked in and settled. In the lobby there will be a CEF greeter who will hand you your guest packet and answer any questions you may have.

Our first activity will be dinner on Thursday evening at 6 pm followed by a short program perfect for relaxing after a long day of travel. I am sure you will find the following information helpful, and I look forward to seeing you at the CEF Partners Retreat.

Yours for all the children,

Reese R. Kauffman
