Child Evangelism Fellowship of Iowa

Every Child, Every Nation, Every Day

CEF partners with churches across the globe to spread the Gospel. Our purpose is to evangelize children with the Gospel, to equip them to walk as Christians and to establish them in a local, bible believing church!


Who We Are

Child Evangelism Fellowship was founded in 1937 by Rev. J. Irvin Overholtzer, a man with a God-given vision for boys and girls in need of the Savior. Today his vision lives on.

CEF® is a Bible-centered, worldwide organization composed of born-again believers whose purpose is to evangelize children with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and to establish (disciple) them in the Word of God and in a local church for Christian living.

CEF wants to reach the children with the Gospel. Our concern in seeking to evangelize them is that “not one of these little ones should perish.”

CEF International Headquarters are located in Warrenton, Missouri. It is the hub of ministry to children around the world. Our Children's Ministry Institute and CEF Press are located there. CEF is active in over 190 countries and our literature is printed in over 200 languages.
