About Us

What is CEF

Child Evangelism Fellowship® is a Bible-centered organization composed of born again believers whose purpose is to evangelize boys and girls with the Gospel of the lord Jesus Christ and to Establish (disciple) them in the Word of God and in a local church for Christian living. CEF® is a worldwide ministry, but also locally focused.

Local CEF

We cover 11 local counties in Iowa. In these counties, there is over 119,000 people and 25,000 children. Many of them will never step foot in a church so we must go to them and share the Gospel! Our desire is to see every child evangelized and established in a local church. This is a big task and can only be accomplished with God’s help. Last year, we were able to reach 755 children and shared the Good News with them- all praise to Him. However, there are still thousands more who need to hear.


CEF state & global

The state of Iowa is divided into 12 local chapters. Each year, thousands of Iowa children hear the Gospel through the work of CEF® of Iowa. One such girl grew up in Iowa, worked with CEF of Iowa in the Des Moines area as a teenager and is now serving with CEF of Uganda, thousands of miles from home. She and thousands of other staff and volunteers are a part of an organization that reaches over 22 million children each year.
