Child Protection Clearances 

All CEF volunteers  are screened according to CEF's Child Protection Policy and Pennsylvania background clearance requirements.


Teaching Children Effectively (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.


Christian Youth In Action® (CYIA™) is a program designed to train young people in effective and engaging ways to teach children about God. CYIA attend a one to two week training school where they learn to present the Gospel clearly on a child’s level, counsel a child for salvation and lead a dynamic 5 -Day Club ministry for kids. Components of this club include teaching a Bible lesson, a real-life missionary story and a Bible verse as well as leading songs, games and a fun review time.

CYIA raise support to be paid throughout the summer or they can volunteer.  Don't settle for just another summer when you could be a CYIA!

We are recruiting CYIA's for summer 2022 ministry now!  Contact us for information!

5-Day Clubs

The summer time 5-Day Club is an exciting, fun-filled, one and one-half hour held each day for five consecutive days. It includes: dynamic Bible lessons, creative learning activities, inspiring missionary stories, meaningful songs, life-changing Scripture memorization and awesome review games all taught by trained Christian Youth in Action missionaries.  

5-Day Clubs take place anywhere children can meet safely.  Churches, back yards, parks, community centers, and day cares are all places to host a club.  Call our office to host a 5-Day Club for summer 2024!

Good News Clubs

Good News Club® is a ministry of Child Evangelism Fellowship in which trained teachers meet with groups of children in schools, homes, community centers, churches, apartment complexes, just about anywhere the children can easily and safely meet with their parent’s permission. Each week the teacher presents an exciting Bible lesson using colorful materials from CEF Press. This action-packed time also includes songs, Scripture memory, a missions story and review games or other activities focused on the lesson’s theme. You can be sure the Gospel message will be presented clearly at Good News Club!

Churches adopt a Good News Club and it becomes an outreach ministry of the church into their public school.  All training and help to get a club started and maintain it is available
