CEF Central Indiana


CEF® is a Bible-centered, worldwide organization composed of born-again believers whose purpose is to evangelize children with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and to establish (disciple) them in the Word of God and in a local church for Christian living. CEF wants to reach the children with the Gospel. Our concern in seeking to evangelize them is that "not one of these little ones should perish."

Daily Prayer & Praise

Pray for 5-Day Clubs going on here in Central Indiana, even before Good News Across America begins. Ask God for the children of His choosing at each club and for His Spirit to move in their hearts, bringing many into a personal relationship with our Savior.

Praise God for the teens serving with us this summer. They are sharing positive testimonies of what they are seeing in the clubs:

  • "Praise that I have this wonderful opportunity to preach the gospel and am able to do it (even while recovering from an injury)."
  • "God brought me joy in seeing the children come even when it was raining. Seeing their smiling faces encouraged me to not give up. There were children who came almost everyday no matter what the weather was like. I am excited and ready to teach our next two 5-Day-Clubs this week."
  • "First week of clubs is going amazing. PRAISE THE LORD!"

Pray for Good News Across America outreach in Indy, July 13-25. (Refer to schedule and prayer needs below.)
