What We Believe

The fact that a young child can comprehend the simple message of salvation and become a child of God is the foundational principle of CEF®. Everything else that we do is based upon this fact. The good news of Jesus Christ is the power of God unto salvation. We must present it clearly and accurately. You can read our Statement of Faith to know more about our Biblical principles.

Our Staff

Kelley Parker Herring, Ministry Coordinator

My first encounter with CEF was as a host for a 5 Day Club in my home. In 2011, I began as ministry coordinator for the Central Alabama Chapter. My current responsibilities include overseeing the Good News Club ministry, CEF promotion and chapter fundraising under the supervision of the local committee and the state director.

One of the greatest joys of being involved in CEF of Central Alabama is meeting with fellow believers from different gospel- believing denominations throughout the region who have a heart to reach the children for Christ in their communities.

I grew up in Montgomery and in Frazer Memorial United Methodist Church where I still attend with my husband. We have two girls who are currently in college at Auburn University. War Eagle!

Savannah Barber, ASsistant to the Ministry Coordinator 

In 2005, I became a summer volunteer with CEF's Christian Youth in Action program in Central Alabama. While serving with CYIA, I had the privilege to lead a little boy name Darryll to Christ. I found out months later that that same boy led fourteen other children to Christ that summer. I knew then that God was calling me to missions with CEF. In 2012 I was hired by the Central Alabama chapter. My responsibilities include screening volunteers, training for our various ministries, and over seeing communications, such as newsletters, web presence, and social media.
