Child Evangelism Fellowship is the largest ministry in the world dedicated exclusively to children. We are in over 200 countries, and last year, shared the Gospel message, face to face with 25.5 million children. Our mission is to evangelize and disciple children and to establish them in God’s Word and in the local church for Christian growth. Click here to learn more about CEF international.
The Greater Greensboro Area Chapter serves all of Guilford and Rockingham (NC) counties, offering the following programs:
Good News Club is a weekly club during the school year and is more popular than ever following the Supreme Court victory allowing Good News Club to take place in public schools across America. Good News Clubs can also be held in other locations – YMCAs, Boys and Girls Clubs, Day Care Centers, parks, homes – any place where children safely gather.
While we are disappointed by the temporary interruption to our after-school clubs pending review of school board policy, we trust that prompt reinstatement of our programs in Guilford County schools is forthcoming. Any unreasonable delay that places Good News Club® in a disadvantageous position relative to other after-school activities, however, would raise well-settled issues of Constitutional law previously decided in our favor.
In the meantime, we will continue sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with children in other public forums. We are grateful for the recent swell of public support and for the many ways God is at work in our community. Please join us in praying for a speedy resolution.
Our summer 5-Day Club outreach takes place over the course of a five day period, offering a unique opportunity for children to interact with teenagers who receive training in the Christian Youth In Action program. These 5-Day Clubs take place anywhere there are children – daycares, churches, community centers, even in your local park! For five consecutive days, clubs meet for an hour and a half to hear Bible lessons, songs, a memory verse and other action packed activities! The clubs provide valuable character qualities, moral values, a sense of community and respect for authority. If you would like to lead a 5 Day club, know of a location, or have a child that would like to participate, please contact us at email@example.com or 336-645-8877.
The vision of the international ministry of CEF is “Every Child, Every Nation, Every Day.” For the Greater Greensboro, Guilford and Rockingham Chapter, this translates to “Every Child, Every School, Every Day.”
What does this mean?
Every Child – We are committed to reaching every child with the Good News of the Gospel.
Every School – Our goal is to have an After School Good News Club meeting weekly in every school in Guilford and Rockingham Counties.
Every Day – We are committed to leading children to be in God’s Word every day. As children grow in their relationship with the Lord through meditating on His Word, they develop a godly character, which produces much fruit to the glory of God, including spreading the Gospel to their peers.
CEF Partners with Churches
In order to accomplish our goal of reaching every child, every school, every day, CEF partners with churches who adopt a school in their area to provide the school with an After School Good News Club. This outreach may result in the church being able to reach beyond the child to minister to their families.
Currently CEF GGA partners with the following churches to conduct Good News Clubs in nine schools in Guilford and Rockingham counties:
First Baptist Draper, Eden, NC
Calvary Church, Greensboro, NC
Cornerstone Baptist Church, Greensboro, NC
Grace Life Church, Greensboro, NC
Lebanon Baptist Church, Greensboro, NC
