There is great need for individuals, couples, families, and church groups to help in the mission of reaching children with the Gospel. Volunteering with CEF® is a great way to use your gifts and talents to help fulfill the Great Commission. The tasks are varied and the needs are many, so we hope you will choose to learn more about how you can invest your time and impact eternity. We have a passion for serving and strengthening the local church through the training of believers who desire to reach their community.
Good News Club Training
Every year in the fall, we host an annual pancake breakfast and half-day training to show our appreciation for and to equip our current and future volunteers. The training consist of various sessions and workshops to explore the curriculum and to prepare committed or potential volunteers for service in Good News Club® for the coming school year.

SUmmer missions Training
While it is true that God is using CEF® to reach many children with the Gospel during the summer months, we are seeking churches who are interested in being part of an ongoing effort to see those children consistently discipled and plugged into a local church body, in a way that roots the child in the teaching of God's Word and the fellowship of His people.

If you are serious about teaching children, you need...
The goal of the Teaching Children Effectively® (TCE™) courses is to produce ministry practitioners who not only have the intellectual know-how to minister to children but who can actually “do ministry.”
Teach children effectively Level 1
TCE™ Level 1 is designed to offer a fresh approach to evangelizing and teaching children. Based on spiritual and educational principles, the course provides the methods and procedures to lead children to Christ and immediately equips the believer to begin and sustain a ministry where he lives. Student practicums are a vital part of the instructional procedure which makes TCE™ a refreshing way to train Christians in child evangelism.
teaching children effectively Level 2
TCE™ Level 2 has been designed to enable you to effectively guide the saved child in his walk with the Lord. Based on spiritual and educational principles, the course builds on those things learned in level 1 and provides practical methods for discipling boys and girls. Although the focus of TCE™ level 2 is on the saved child, a strong evangelistic emphasis is also presented. Student practicums continue to be a vital part of the instructional process.
