Child Evangelism Fellowship of Iowa

Every Child, Every Nation, Every Day

Former NY Giant and 2-time Super Bowl Champion Lee Rouson spoke at our Siouxland Partner's Breakfast. Lee works for Sports World, a ministry that has former pro athletes talk to thousands of children across the USA. Sports World and CEF are partnering a pilot program where SW talks in schools and invites children to Good News Clubs and Party Clubs.


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.
