About Us

The purpose of Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF™) is to EVANGELIZE boys and girls with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, DISCIPLE them in God’s Word, and CONNECT them to a local church.

CEF fulfills this purpose through Good News Clubs® during the school year and 5-Day Clubs® during the summer.

Our purpose in the Gwinnett Chapter is to reach every child in Gwinnett County in second to fifth grades with the Gospel of Jesus Christ by hosting a Good News Club in every public elementary school by partnering with local churches.

Our mission is to reach all 55,000 students in grades 2-5 in the 80 public elementary schools in Gwinnett County with the Gospel. It will take the body of Christ working together to reach this mission field.

“2/3 of Christians came to faith before the age of 18 and 43% came to Christ before the age 12.”* With these overwhelming statistics and parents’ concern over the lasting effects of the pandemic on their children, we have an enormous mission field open to reach children with the Gospel of Jesus. With 80 public elementary schools, we can reach over 55,000 students in grades two-five alone! 

We are part of Child Evangelism Fellowship, a Bible-centered, worldwide organization founded by Jesse Irvin Overholtzer in 1937. The ministry has grown into the largest evangelistic outreach to children in the world reaching 19.9 million children with the clear message of Christ.
