Transforming Lives for 80 Years

Child Evangelism Fellowship® has more open doors than ever. The times are urgent and the work is vital. We long to reach every child in Lancaster County with the Gospel of Christ. We’re grateful for our heritage but even more excited about what the Lord will do in our future.


CEF of Lancaster County is here to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with every child throughout our local community. Our programs include our after-school Good News Clubs for children in Kindergarten through 6th grade, our JYC™ for middle school students and our summer ministries that include VBS and 5-Day Club®. We also have a unique opportunity for teens to serve as summer missionaries through our CYIA™ or Christian Youth in Action® training program. We partner with local churches that support our programs and welcome unchurched children and their families into their fold. We believe every child is designed and created by God with a plan and a purpose. We want children to know just how valuable, loved and important they are and to find their identity in Christ!

Church Partnerships

CEF of Lancaster County operates a variety of non-denominational clubs for children throughout all of Lancaster County. As a non-profit organization, we rely on our local churches and generous private donors to support our ministry. We partner with churches throughout the county who support our three-fold purpose to 1) Evangelize boys and girls with the Gospel of Jesus Christ 2) Disciple children in the Word of God and 3) Establish children in a local, Bible-believing church. Each point of our purpose is critical and that third one requires strong, scripturally-sound churches to come alongside CEF and open their doors to children and their families. Our church partners provide financial, prayer and volunteer support to our ministry and we are beyond blessed by those who have chosen to join us!
