ST. LOUIS Child Evangelism Fellowship is using many online tools to reach more and more children with the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ.

One powerful resource is U-Nite Radio, which is presenting the new podcast series “Bible Basics.”

U-Nite-Radio teaches kids about the Gospel through adventures and foundational, biblical truths.

The short episodes teach children through engaging stories. Episodes can be downloaded so children can listen anytime and anywhere. Episodes alternate each week between Good News Devos and Good News Heroes.

“Bible Basics lays foundational truths that are essential to a strong faith in trusting the Bible, which is necessary for understanding and trusting other biblical teachings as true,” says Andrew York, CEF director of digital ministries. “Many kids’ podcasts are merely entertainment, but U-Nite Radio teaches biblical truth through engaging stories.

“The new series is designed to reach saved kids through a podcast just for them with content to aid them in their Christian growth.”

A new series begins every five weeks, and there’s a brand new episode every week.

Good News Devos establish biblical foundations such as teaching who God is, the basics to understanding the Bible, and the truth of the 10 Commandments.

Good News Heroes follow the characters Logan and Piper as they learn about heroes of the faith like Cameron Townsend, Lottie Moon and George Muller.

CEF’s U-Nite Radio’s goal is to provide children with safe online content that shares a positive biblical message as opposed to the immoral content that is being pushed on young children. With the ease of accessibility that children have to online content, they are often exposed to harmful media that shares secular messages such as explicit sexualized content.

Children can tune in to the U-Nite Radio podcast on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or through CEF’s website.

“We’re hoping to continue the growth of the U-Nite Radio ministry and reach more and more children with this fun and valuable resource to help them grow in their faith,” York says.

A long-term goal for CEF is to minister to 100 million children each year globally with the Gospel within 10 to 15 years. In 2024 alone, CEF plans to reach at least 30.4 million children.

Child Evangelism Fellowship, which was founded 87 years ago, has been establishing Good News Clubs® in countries around the world for decades. Clubs are thriving worldwide, in many countries including Australia, Japan, Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana, Taiwan, Kenya, Ukraine, New Zealand, South Korea, Israel, Thailand, and Uganda.

In 2022, through CEF’s combined ministries, more than 19.5 million children worldwide heard the Good News. More than 439,000 teachers were trained around the world.
