We have made every effort to make sure our ministries have a long term focus. It is our desire to be a part of the life of every child that God brings along our path for as long as possible.
We don't just want to lead children to the Lord, we also want to help them grow in their faith. We also provide training and resources for those who want to see this happen!
We partner with churches across Ontario to help run Vacation Bible Schools and 5-Day Clubs for children in the community.
We provide two trained summer missionaries who come and teach a two hour program every day for a week. These programs include songs, games, skits, memory verses, Bible lessons and a missionary story.
We also provide additional resources to host a complete Vacation Bible school or 5-day club.
CAMP MINISTRIES (Camp Good News)
Disadvantaged children who attend our club ministries have the opportunity to come to weekend retreats and week long summer camps throughout the year.
The weeks are filled with activities ranging from bracelet making to rafting. It's a week where the kids can feel safe, loved and grow closer in their relationship with Jesus.
Many of the kids call Camp Good News "home".
You can sponsor a child for a week of camp for just $150.
CEF has a wide variety of excellent literature to help you in your ministry to children.
We have Bible lessons, Missionary stories, song visuals, music and more.
Perhaps what sets CEF's literature apart from all others is that there's always an application for the saved and unsaved child.

We have two types of club ministries:
Good News Clubs (GNC) are mid-week programs that run for one to two hours after school. They have an evangelistic and discipleship focus.
Slingshot clubs are monthly clubs that usually occur on a Saturday. These highly relational clubs are usually held in "high risk" neighbourhoods and run for three to four hours.
We provide training and curriculum for anyone who wants to run a club!
CHRISTIAN YOUTH IN ACTION (CYIA)
In the summer, young people join us for two weeks of intensive training before being sent out in pairs throughout the province to minister to children for up to six weeks.
It's a tremendous growing experience as they are pushed out of their comfort zone and learn to depend on God in a way they never thought possible.
And when the summer is over, we have all kinds of opportunities for them to continue to be involved throughout the school year.
Ministering to children for over 80 years CEF is a world leader when it comes to training for ministry to children.
CEF has a wide range of training available. We cover subjects such as Classroom Management, Teaching a Memory, and Counseling a Child for Salvation.
