CEF - Reaching Children Worldwide

Child Evangelism Fellowship is the largest worldwide ministry to children.  The Lord used a retired pastor to begin the work and many others since those early days in the 1930's.


CEF's International Headquarters is located in Warrenton, Missouri, 50 miles west of St. Louis.  

Visitors are always welcome!


CEF    is actively expanding ministry into new nations and new areas

within nations with a goal of reaching

Every Child, Every Nation, Every Day

Our state ministry is part of Child Evangelism Fellowship USA. CEF of West Texas was incorporated in 1961. Since Texas is such a big state, CEF incorporated East Texas separately in 1964.

Club Ministries

Find out how God continues to use the exciting club ministries CEF offers around the world. Good News Club,  a weekly club during the school year, is more popular than ever following the Supreme Court victory allowing Good News Club to take place in public schools across America.

 Our summer 5-Day Club  outreach takes place over the course of a five day period, offering a unique opportunity for children to interact with teenagers who receive training in the 

Christian Youth In Action    program.

Many children are receiving free Bible lessons in the mail from The Mailbox Club and the wonderful volunteers that help to make this ministry possible.

Janet Johnson

State Director

     As a child, I loved God the Father, but knew nothing about Jesus.  Finally, when I was 23 years old, living in Dallas, I heard the gospel message.  Six months later, on May 12, 1982, I told Jesus I wanted to follow Him.  

     I started serving with CEF in 2005, the same year I met David Johnson.  His support is a blessing. We love being part of what God is doing in West Texas to take the Good News of salvation to boys & girls!

For You will light my lamp; the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness. For by You I can run against a troop, by my God I can leap over a wall. As for God, His way is perfect; the Word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.”  

- Psalm 18:28-30  

Pam Miller

Office Manager

I love working as Office Manager for CEF of West Texas, I practically grew up with CEF®. When my parents moved our family from Mineral Wells, TX  to Wichita Falls in 1972 in the summertime,  some nice ladies would knock on the doors of our neighborhood and invite the children to Backyard Bible Club. They mentioned that we were going to sing, have a Bible story, eat snacks and have a great time. My brother, sisters and I, plus the neighborhood kids, went and had a wonderful time. We heard the gospel, and sang songs that are still in my memory. It wasn't until I started working for CEF® that I learned what I had experienced as a child with Backyard Bible Club was an outreach of CEF®! 

"I will never leave thee nor forsake thee."
