Do You Wonder Why? Crisis Resources
Death, divorce, severe illness, abuse, natural disasters ... children are hurting and wondering, "Why?"
Designed to help children troubled by natural disasters, national crises and personal problems, the Do You Wonder Why? booklet and video help children understand the effects of sin, the depths of God's love and how they can know the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.
This video and booklet have been used to minister to children and adults that have experienced natural and man-made disasters around the world.

Take vacation Bible school on the road with 5-Day Club! High quality teaching materials, action packed fun and loads of relationship building make 5-Day Club one of the most fruitful ministry events of the year.
Take your ministry to the kids; don't wait for them to come to church. Think of the places where kids spend their time during the summer; community centers, daycares, parks and summer school. These are the places your church will want to minister through the 5-Day Club.
The 5-Day Club meets once a day for five days. Churches have had great success with choosing three locations in nearby neighborhoods to have a week of 5-Day Club. On the last day of the week they have a rally or special event at their church. The relationship building that has taken place all week long helps bring the children and their families to the church.
Evangelistic Bible lessons, high-energy games, meaningful songs are all part of what makes a 5-Day Cluba memorable experience for the children and the volunteers!
Most churches send their mission-minded teens to Christian Youth In Action training where they learn to teach a Bible lesson, counsel a child for salvation, teach a missionary story and songs.
CEF will provide a strategic plan, training, materials, background screenings and coaching for your team. Contact your local CEF office to find out what is happening in your area..
Party to Evangelize!
Children love to be invited to parties. Even more, they love to bring their friends to parties. Games, treats, activities … CEF Party Clubs incorporate all this fun but what makes a CEF Party Club unique is the presentation of a clear Gospel message wrapped in a theme-based story or lesson.
Party clubs are an excellent way for churches to initiate outreach to children and their families. We offer holiday themed clubs like Christmas, Thanksgiving andValentines Day are perfect times to invite the kids in your community to a party!

Christian Youth in Action (CYIA)
How are you spending your summer? As relaxing as it may be to chill at the pool or hang out with friends, what if you chose instead to make an eternal impact in the lives of kids right where you live?! High school and college students from around your state are coming together to reach the boys and girls of your community – and YOU can be a part of this team!
Christian Youth In Action® (CYIA™) is a program designed to train you and a team of other young people in effective and engaging ways to teach children about God. You will attend a one to two week training school where you will learn to present the Gospel clearly on a child’s level, counsel a child for salvation and lead a dynamic club ministry for kids. Components of this club include teaching a Bible lesson, a real-life missionary story and a Bible verse as well as leading songs, games and a fun review time.
After this training, you will return to your local community and teach clubs at various locations with a team of other young people. These clubs take place out in the community with predominantly unsaved kids who don’t regularly attend church. You will be able to take the light of the Gospel to them in their apartment complexes, day care centers, neighborhoods, schools and other community locations. Depending on the state you serve in, you will teach clubs from one to five weeks during the summer.
If you have a heart for ministry and want to team up with other young people to reach the children in your community, then CYIA is for you!
Just think, this summer you can:
Reach boys and girls with the Gospel
See your faith and vision grow deeper
Build new friendships that will last a lifetime
Grow in communication, teamwork, endurance, responsibility, and self-confidence
Gain experience for ministry in your own local church, school or vocation
Now, doesn’t THAT sound like a rewarding summer?!
