Thank you for supporting this mission to unchurched children and families through CEF Durham’s 100/1,000 Giving Campaign. For 26 years, Child Evangelism Fellowship in the Durham Area has reached city kids primarily within their neighborhoods, community programs, and sometimes in their schools. Please consider joining us in sharing the Good News with over 10,000 children annually. CEF Durham is asking for 100 donors to give $1,000 each by January 2020. Over 30 new $1,000 contributions (or equivalent donations) have already been received. Thank you for becoming the next 100/1,000 for 2020-2021.
Our God-Given Mission
Child Evangelism Fellowship® (CEF®) of North Carolina in Durham has a simple, but profound threefold purpose: evangelism, discipleship, and connecting local churches to unchurched children and families across our area. For 26 years, Child Evangelism Fellowship has reached city kids in the surrounding Durham area. Through our Good News Clubs, sports camps, and collaborative events with dozens of ministry partners, we’ve been able to share the gospel with children of all ages. Thousands have accepted Christ as their Savior and many lives, families, and communities have been changed. Biblical discipleship is happening weekly in schools and neighborhoods.
Discover Our Story
During 2017-2018, CEF Durham conducted 122 weekly clubs, camps, and special events in the Durham – Orange – Alamance county area. 550 made decisions to follow Christ. Some adults/parents are in discipleship classes and others are surrendering their lives to Christ in local jails. 2019 reported over 10,000 youth and adults reached through various CEF ministries. We are seeking dedicated new volunteer staff and new camp sponsors as we expand the outreach to 10,250-15,000 city kids each year.
CEF Durham annually reaches children, youth and their families with Gospel centered activities within their neighborhoods and schools as well as at special community events. 2020-2021 will be capacity-building in these 3 areas:
1) 10% increase in Good News Clubs and sports-related outreach
2) 500 volunteers needed to double the impact of character education and sports-related ministries in the areas where CEF Durham serves by 2021
3) $100,000 additional funding to support the capacity-building of direct ministry efforts (100 donations of $1,000)
