Big Picture

Every Child, Every Nation, Every Day


Child Evangelism Fellowship is the world’s largest evangelistic outreach to children, but to reach even more children with the Gospel, we need more workers throughout the United States and in every country of the world

There are many ways you can serve with CEF to help reach Every Child, Every Nation, Every Day.

Career Missions

CEF has career missionary opportunities available around the globe, both in the United States and internationally where we have a ministry presence. When you become part of the Missionary Program, you will be fully trained, supported and equipped to be a full-time CEF missionary serving in the world’s largest evangelistic children’s ministry.

Short Term Missions

If you want to be part of CEF’s mission to reach children with the gospel but aren’t sure if God is calling you to a full-time career, then short-term missions could be the right fit for you. Through ministry opportunities that last two years or less, you can serve as a short-term missionary through our Impact program, work at the International Headquarters as an intern, 0r work with a local office in your area.

Volunteer Missionary Opportunities

Volunteer missionaries have served alongside CEF staff since its launch in 1937. Today, volunteer missionaries are helping CEF reach children, youth, and adults in countries around the world.

Volunteer missionary opportunities exist at the CEF International Headquarters in Warrenton, Missouri, as well as in local CEF chapters around the world.

Learn more about how you can help us reach children through volunteering, or contact Volunteer Services directly for more information about volunteering.
