About South Plains Chapter
Child Evangelism Fellowship® has been actively reaching children in Lubbock and surrounding counties for many years. We are thankful for our history and the lives of children impacted by the Gospel. Great things are happening today and the outreach is growing.
We partner with churches to reach children with the gospel message. So many children do not attend church, so we want to help local churches take the Gospel to boys & girls in the public schools through after-school Good News Clubs.
To learn more ...
please call us! We can make a presentation to your church, assist you in recruiting a team, provide training & curriculum and help you launch an outreach to children who need to hear about Jesus.
Our chapter is supported completely by individuals, churches, businesses, foundations...and by prayer!

South Plains Staff
GNC Ministry Specialist
I am a retired teacher of deaf and hard of hearing students. I have been married to Michael for 40 years and we have two grown children, Jessica & Daniel and one son in heaven, Timothy. My exposure to Child Evangelism Fellowship was through Daniel’s Sunday school teacher, Virginia Kelley. She used her Good News Club material to teach our son amazingly clear truths about Jesus and the Bible. I told her that “one day” I wanted to learn how to present the Gospel so clearly. When Virginia was diagnosed with ALS, I knew that “one day” had come. That was 19 years ago, and I have been doing Good News Clubs ever since. Being a part-time staff member of CEF means that I will be able to continue Virginia’s legacy of reaching children with the message of salvation through Jesus Christ!
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, plans for good and not for evil, plans to give you a future and a hope.”
I grew up right here in Lubbock. I went to Murfee Elementary, Evans Junior High School, and Monterey High School. I went to church at First Baptist Church most of my life.
I came to faith in Jesus Christ after hearing a sermon from the college pastor, John Strappazon. I felt the call to ministry during my college years, while I went to Texas Tech University. At first my plan was to be a lawyer, but I didn’t feel a peace about that path. I decided to get my Masters of Divinity with a Biblical Counseling degree at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth. My mom, Kay, went there as well as my grandfather and grandmother. My dad, Ron, is a child support attorney for the state of Texas, and has advocated for children for the last 20 years. My sister, Hannah, is married to Zach Simmons, and they both work at City Bank in Lubbock.
I heard about CEF from Carol Farris, who has been a dear family friend for several years. I am excited about the ways God is reaching children in the South Plains! I look forward to meeting you and serving alongside you to impact the community of West Texas.
