Child Evangelism Fellowship® is the largest children’s ministry in the world, reaching 25 million every year. CEF Suncoast is the chapter that covers Pinellas and Pasco County in Florida. We bring the gospel and disciple children through Good News and 5-Day Clubs® in public schools, summer camps, and neighborhood homes. The majority of these boys and girls are unchurched, our clubs often are the only time they will ever hear the clear gospel message. We know how important this open door to reach children in public schools is, as two-thirds of all believers become Christians as children.
Child Evangelism Fellowship is a Bible-centered organization composed of born-again believers whose purpose is to evangelize boys and girls with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and to establish (disciple) them in the Word of God and in a local church for Christian living.
“Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”
God has given His people a clear commission - reach every creature with the Good News of the Lord Jesus Christ. Our special mission in CEF is to evangelize every child. In the last ministry year our workers worldwide reached over 25.4 million children! CEF is committed to reaching 15 percent more each year. Strategic ministry choices such as Good News Club in public schools and concentrating on high potential growth countries will help us reach this goal. Mark 16:15, “Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”
CEF is a worldwide ministry serving in every region of the world in an ever expanding way. Matthew 28:19, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations.”
We are committed to leading children to be in God’s Word every day. As children grow in their relationship with the Lord through meditating on His Word, they develop godly character, which produces much fruit to the glory of God, including spreading the Gospel to their peers. We now have over 800,000 Wonder Devotional Books in Africa. Right now we are working to reach 500,000 children in Asia with the books. Psalm 119:2, “Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.” Only as we trust in God and call upon Him are we empowered to do His will. Programs come after prayer, never before it. We have over 2,900 workers worldwide led by eight regional directors. There are also tens of thousands of volunteers worldwide. God works through His people, godly leaders, staff and volunteers in order to accomplish our goals. The sun never sets on CEF ministry. We provide training, equip our workers with ministry tools and support them through fund-raising and ministry development.
