Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) is a Bible-centered, worldwide organization composed of born-again believers whose purpose is to evangelize boys and girls with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, to disciple them in the Word of God and to establish them in a local church for Christian living.

CEF is a faith-based ministry where appointed missionaries participate with the chapter committee in raising funds for their salaries. The salary goal for a beginning Director is $3500 monthly. This missionary assignment is more than a job description.  It is a calling from the Lord to give every child an opportunity to hear the Gospel and to follow the Savior in believing faith.

North San Diego County has a rich heritage of evangelism to children with CEF dating back to 1939.  Twenty-five after school Good News Clubs are expected to be running this spring. There is strong support from our chapter committee and area churches.  The children and families of our chapter are ethnically diverse including Asian, Hispanic and Native American populations.  With various other groups too numerous to list, it seems the world is at our doorstep.

  • Supportive committee
  • Supportive churches
  • Supportive prayer partners
  • Currently 170 volunteers
  • A rich heritage of CEF work in North County since 1939
