    Purpose and Origin of CEF

Child Evangelism Fellowship® is a Bible-centred, worldwide organization, comprising of born-again believers whose purpose is to

  1. evangelize boys and girls with the Gospel of Jesus Christ
  2. edify (disciple) them in the Word of God and
  3. establish them in the local Church

CEF desires to reach Every Child, Every Nation, Every Day and we are going through the doors that God opens for us to do this. In 1970, CEF reached the shores of Singapore and was officially established in March 1977.

Origin of CEF

Growing up in a religious family, Jessie at the age of 12 was convicted of his own sin and sought counsel from his mother. He was told, "Son, you are too young." It wasn't until Jessie Irwin Overholtzer was in college that he heard the Gospel and trusted Christ as his Saviour.

Later as a pastor, Mr. O (as he was affectionately called) read one of Charles Spurgeon's sermons which stated,

"A child of five, if properly instructed can as truly believe and be regenerated as an adult."

The Lord used this statement to lead Mr. O to begin the ministry of Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) when he was 60 years old. His desire was to tell boys and girls how to be free from the guilt of sin, something which no one would tell him when he was a boy.
