Volunteers have served alongside Child Evangelism Fellowship® staff from the very beginning in 1937. Today volunteers are helping CEF® reach children, young people and adults in over 190 countries.
Volunteer opportunities exist at the CEF International Headquarters in Warrenton, Missouri, as well as in local CEF ministry around the world--including right here in Salem County.
A few of the opportunities for local volunteers are highlighted below. If you have other ideas which would better utilize your unique gifts and abilities, call Lynn Kuitems at the CEF office. She'll be glad to discuss additional avenues for service.
Fair Ministry Volunteers
5-Day Club Volunteers
Good News Club Volunteers
Good News Club®. Participate in a weekly 90-minute club for children held in a local area during the school year. Teachers prepare and teach a Bible lesson or a memory verse. Helpers have responsibilities ranging from helping with games and snacks to listening to children recite their memory verses or counseling children for salvation. Other responsibilities include team leader, administrative coordinator and prayer partner.
5-Day Club®. Participate by teaching or helping in CEF's summer ministry to children.
Fair Ministry. Share the message of salvation with small groups of children who visit the CEF booth at local fairs.
Drivers for Christian Youth in Action®. Drive summer missionaries to and from their clubs.
Part-Time or Occasional Office Work. Provide help with routine administrative or clerical tasks: preparing mailings, collating materials, filing, etc. Depending on availability and skill set, take responsibility for additional administrative areas. Schedule at your convenience.
Website Design/Maintenance. Design and provide tools for maintaining the local CEF website.
Note: Most volunteer positions require signing the CEF Statement of Faith and Workers Compliance Agreement, as well as a Confidential Screening and Criminal Background Check. Those who teach or help in direct ministry to children may also be asked to attend training before and while serving.
