Become Engaged

Child Evangelism Fellowship ® (CEF) of Greater Richmond is a church-assist ministry organization focused on evangelizing and teaching children ages 5-14. CEF of Greater Richmond trains ministry teams of volunteers to conduct evangelistic events. We serve churches and individuals by equipping them to fulfill the great commission as an ambassador for Christ – reconciling the lost with the message of the gospel.


Receive training and join a ministry team that works directly with children providing hands-on support to a sponsoring church.


Like the churches supporting the ministry of the Apostle Paul give to support the CEF staff and church volunteers enabling children to hear the Gospel message.


Pray for the salvation and spiritual growth of children, the provision of God, and the welfare of volunteers and staff as they seek to faithfully serve.


Please be a blessing to all who may come here to understand how the Lord has answered your prayers or in some way, no matter how small, brought a blessing to you or to those you know.


Partnering and collaboration are the glue that binds us together with the local church. It is crucial to doing the work of the ministry and our success is dependent on teams of volunteers working together.

Learning While on the Journey

Every Child

Mark 16:15, “Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”

Every Nation

Matthew 28:19, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations.”

Every Day

Psalm 119:2, “Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.”

Our special mission at CEF Virginia and the Greater Richmond chapter is to evangelize every child. Ministry choices such as Good News Clubs in public schools and Christian Youth in Action will help reach those children and get them on the journey of a lifetime.
