CEF has a strong presence at many fairs and festivals across the state, where the children are invited to hear a brief presentation of the Gospel. Those that receive Christ are given Bibles and Gospel tracts to assist them in their spiritual growth. This is our largest outreach by far and many adults stop by to tell us about when they were young and heard the Gospel and the difference God made in their lives.
We are always looking for prayer warriors, greeters, and teachers for these fairs.
Youth Pastors, this is a great way to involve your youth group in ministry, with a low amount of planning but eternal results! This would be a great training opportunity for those planning to go on short-term mission trips. We need hands and hearts to continue to make this ministry a possibility!
