CEF of East and Central Africa

Unstoppable Ministry in East and Central Africa!

Our mission is to is to evangelize boys and girls 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.  

Across our region, we minister to children through Good News Club, school ministry, Camp Good News, 5-Day Club, and many other activities. We also train and equip staff, volunteers, and Sunday School teachers to effectively evangelize and disciple children. 

The past few years, many things have tried to stop this ministry, but one thing we have learned is that God is unstoppable! When rebels attacked in South Sudan, staff had to relocate to refugee camps. That didn’t stop them from doing ministry though. They taught children in the refugee camps and went back into South Sudan as often as possible. While the rest of the world shut down for COVID, things in South Sudan opened back up. Lockdowns for COVID couldn’t stop ministry either. Instead of gathering in large groups, staff went from house to house to teach children or hand out literature. In several countries, staff taught the Gospel on the radio, TV, and YouTube. Our regional office even held an online training.  

No matter what, nothing was able to stop God’s work!  

We are pleased to provide you with our Digital Library below.
