Partner's Retreat

February 3-6, 2022
Reese and Linda Kauffman


Linda and I want to invite you to join us in Florida for the CEF Partner’s Retreat. We assure you it will be a weekend to remember. You will love the scenic view of Florida from the hotel. You will be enriched by the fellowship with like-minded believers. You soul will be thrilled to hear the reports of all that God is doing through the ministry of Child Evangelism Fellowship. If you have never heard Dr. Alexander Granados or Niah and Allisha Merrill you are in for a real treat.

Dr. Granados’ messages are powerful and spot on. The Merrills will lead our worship times and provide special music. Of course, you will also be able to hear from CEF leaders. Don’t miss this wonderful weekend. Linda and I look forward to seeing you there.

Yours for all the children,

Reese and Linda Kauffman
