Make a Donation
Building a team that financially supports the ministry connects people with a primary purpose for redemption, to be the expression of Christ to the nations. CEF® of Central Alabama is a faith-supported ministry that brings together those whom God calls to go to children and those whom God calls to give generously of what they have. Your payments are processed and distributed safely, and you will receive a tax-deductible receipt regularly when your gift is received.
Many financial supporters choose to give a monthly donation of any amount that God leads them to give. When these gifts are pledged regularly, it allows the ministry to set a budget and maintain growth throughout the year. While spontaneous giving is a blessing, when some are called to give regularly, the ministry is sustained for long-term work. When you have prayerfully considered joining the support team, and settled on an amount and how often you will give, you are ready to submit your first donation. Your payments are processed and distributed safely, and you will receive a tax-deductible receipt regularly when your gift is received.
