CEF’s purpose has remained unchanged for 85 years. For over 30 years the Durham Area Chapter has created new programs and changed some ministry methods, but our purpose to reach, teach, and disciple children for Christ will never change. We operate as a faith-based, donation-supported organization, with the staff, board members, and financial sub-committee sharing the fund-raising responsibilities. Thank You for contributing to boys and girls we minister!

Financial and prayer support come from churches and individuals who share the vision of reaching kids with the Gospel and teaching them in Christian living. Our Annual Fund covers all organizational costs and direct ministry expenses. Camps for City Kids funding cover summer staff, classes, and equipment.

Fun play, basic skills, and court fitness are offered by CEF and summer staff members conducting classes to build character, understand their value/power, and change things in their world.

Our God-Given Mission

Child Evangelism Fellowship® (CEF®) of North Carolina in the Durham area has a simple, but profound threefold purpose: evangelism, discipleship, and connecting local churches to children and families across our area. For 30 years, Child Evangelism Fellowship has reached and served city kids in the surrounding Durham area. Through our community and school-based Good News Clubs, sports camps, character education, and collaborative events with dozens of ministry partners, we’ve been able to fulfill our mission with children of all ages. Our presence, specifically in Durham, is to families under-served, marginalized, and/or with the greatest challenges to access social, financial, educational, and spiritual resources. 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.
