It is an historic fact that Child Evangelism Fellowship has never changed nor altered its purpose or mission statement in 83 years. While over 27 years in the Durham Area Chapter, we have created new programs and changed some of our ministry methods, our purpose to reach, teach, and disciple children for Christ will never change. CEF Durham, annually, requires the projected needs mentioned below to minister effectively as we have for 27 years. Over 40 new $1,000 contributions (or equivalent) were received in 2019-2020 towards these annual expenses. During 2021 CEF Durham is asking God and seeking similar growth and 25 new donors. To request a current budget, please contact us.

Our Annual Fund covers all organizational costs and direct ministry expenses. An equipped administrative office, vehicles/trailers, insurance, and storage are our overhead costs. The non-overhead costs associated with soliciting funds are also operating costs. In order for us to present and manage the various direct ministry programs in our area, there are staffing costs and a number of activities that happen behind the scenes that need funding to enable the weekly outreach as well as building capacity to expand the outreach.
