Rio Grande Chapter
Partners in Reaching Children with the Gospel
We work with local churches to reach the children and look forward to developing partnerships with churches all over El Paso and nearby counties. It is a blessing to seeing the body of Christ in action, teaching the children from God's Word and leading them to the Savior!
Will you join us?
In order to reach the thousands of children in our area we have established our priorities as Good News Clubs, 5-Day Clubs and One-time party Club ministries. Luke 10:19 is our prayer model, trusting God to honor His prayer request given to His people. Our ministry depends on God to provide staff and volunteers. Please call our Local Director, Vicki Johnston, for information on how to be part of what God is doing through the CEFWTX chapter in El Paso and the Rio Grande area. 626-506-9977

Rio Grande Chapter Staff
When I was a little girl, all I ever wanted to be was a missionary. I received Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior when I was in the second grade while attending a Christian School in California. I know that day changed my life for all eternity! God has taken me on an incredible journey of faith as He has allowed me to serve in ministries to children, teenagers, and adults. About 20 years ago I was introduced to Child Evangelism Fellowship, while living in Florida and went through their training on how to start a Good News Club. The training changed the way I would evangelize, and I was excited to put that training into practice. I started a Good News Club at my house and still remember the joy that the children had after hearing the Bible lessons and many responding to the invitation!
Now, 20 years later God has brought my husband and me to El Paso where I learned that there was an opportunity to reach the boys and girls with the Gospel through Good News Clubs! Never did I realize when God moved us to El Paso I was going to be working once again with CEF. We have a lot of work to do but then again, my journey of faith is not over!
Good News Club Ministry Coordinator
As a public school teacher, I saw the need that my students had to know that they have a Savior who loves them and wants to be a part of their lives. I wanted to bring the Good News of Jesus to my students but, I did not know how it could be accomplished. This led me on a search that happily brought me to Child Evangelism Fellowship’s Good News Club Ministry. It was not long after this that a Good News Club was established at my school and many children were coming to know Christ as their Savior. I was blessed to not only witness what God was doing in these children's lives but also, to become a part of the ministry as a Good News Club Coordinator. I am excited to see what the Lord is doing and will continue to do through Good News Clubs throughout El Paso and around the world.
