With much anticipation, Child Evangelism Fellowship® invites you to join us for International Conference 2025. After a couple of years of shifting to digital events, we are excited to see you in person at the Ridgecrest Conference Center in Black Mountain, North Carolina.

We will spend time studying God’s Word and worshipping through music together during main sessions. We will break out into small groups to attend workshops geared toward CEF staff, volunteers, and boards and committees. The conference will include times of fellowship with other believers, training for CEF ministry, praying together to our God, and visiting exhibitors and vendors to bring the experience back to our local mission field.

We look forward to seeing you at the CEF® International Conference 2025.

Registration will open soon.
