Have you ever longed for clear direction for your life? Do you want to discover and fulfill God’s purpose for you? Hundreds of people just like you have benefited from GUIDE Retreat.

GUIDE Retreat, hosted by CEF International Headquarters, is an opportunity for you to learn practical ways to find God’s will for your life and if it involves ministry. Whether you sense God’s calling to Child Evangelism Fellowship® or not, this weekend will help you make life choices based on God’s Word and the leadership of His Spirit.

CEF® is the world’s largest ministry to children — currently serving around the globe! Our trained workers and volunteers present the Gospel to millions of children every year.

During this weekend at CEF we will enjoy time in God’s Word, fellowship, prayer, worship, and investigating the opportunities. Our time together will be organized around the word GUIDE:

Gaining a Biblical perspective

Understanding God’s will

Investigating the opportunities

Developing a plan

Enjoying the journey

You will have a small group for the weekend and your “guide” will help you discuss and process the topics covered. A special feature of the weekend will be a Spiritual Gifts Inventory Test which will help you determine the natural gifts God has given you and how He has equipped you to serve Him effectively.
