Children's Workers Conference

The Children's Workers Conference "Teach N Transform" that was scheduled for Sept. 27 in Howell, MI has been cancelled due to lack of interest.

CEF’s mission is to evangelize unchurched children with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, disciple them, and establish them in a local church for Christian living. CEF accomplishes this mission through a variety of different ministries during the summer and school year, going to where children are outside of church walls. CEF also offers college-accredited training courses and other training opportunities to equip workers to reach children effectively for Christ.
