How is your church making the difference in the lives of children and families in your community? Your congregation has the great opportunity to act as the hands and feet of Christ in one of the most neglected missions fields – the children.


Smaller churches are connecting with other churches to adopt a school. Groups of individuals can also adopt one! There is much work yet to be done to take the Gospel to every elementary school in Maryland!

Child Evangelism Fellowship wants to partner with you and/or your church to take the Gospel to over a million children in Maryland in the 4/14 Window who have never heard the life-giving message of salvation. There are over 900 public elementary schools in the state. Just imagine the impact for the Kingdom of God if each school was adopted by a Bible-believing church in its community. (There are far more churches than schools!) What a transformation we would see in our towns and cities! Whole families would be attending church and serving God.

Down through 80 years of effective ministry to children, Child Evangelism Fellowship has developed a proven Biblically-solid curriculum which applies Biblical truth to both the unsaved and saved child. The Good News Club program has been extremely successful at instilling a Biblical worldview in young lives. Week after week during the school year, the Good News Club shares the message of salvation and disciples children in the Word of God. CEF provides all of the resources, legal counsel, and support for this outreach ministry. Many churches have seen children move from attendance at Good News Clubs to regular attendance at their church services.

When your church adopts a school, your members will be taking Sunday school to the public school! During the 90-minute club, five or more members of your congregation will have the blessing of sharing the Gospel, developing relationships with children, and making vital connections with families in your community. The children in your adopted school will hear the Gospel and your church will grow as we work together for the Kingdom of God!

Partner with CEF to impact the next generation with the Gospel! Together we can get the Bible into every elementary school in Maryland and impact children and families right in their community.

This is an amazing time in America’s history for Bible-believing churches to reach out to children with the permission of the Supreme Court. Time is short. We don’t know how long this window of opportunity will be open.


The Process

There are 900 public elementary schools in Maryland and Good News Clubs are established in over 100 and growing! New clubs are continually opening. We are calling all Bible-believing churches across the state to step up to the plate and adopt their community school while the doors are still open!

With a team of 5-8 people, you and/or your church have an unprecedented opportunity to:
– Evangelize and disciple children
– Make an impact on the next generation for Christ
– Get students and their whole family connected to your local church
– Expand your outreach and youth ministry within your community
– Minister to the families of the children in a variety of ways
