About Us

Sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with the children of the Lowcountry.

Children Evangelism Fellowship is a Bible-centered ministry aimed at teaching boys and girls of all ages about the Lord, His gift of salvation, and His perfect will. We strive hard to reach the youth from all over the Counties of Beaufort, Jasper, Colleton, and Hampton in South Carolina.

Our Beginning

In 1937, Rev. J. Irvin Overholtzer founded our organization to heed God’s calling for him to be an instrument so that the children can know the Lord Jesus Christ and receive Him as their God and Savior.

Why We Serve

Our purpose is to teach boys and girls the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, disciple them in the Word of God, and establish them in a Bible-believing church for Christian living.

Our Vision

Our ministry vision is to reach every child, every nation, every day.

Mark 16:15

“Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”

Serving Every Child

Our special mission in the Children Evangelism Fellowship is to evangelize every child. In the previous year, we have reached more than 19.9 million children from across the globe. We are committed to helping 15% more each year. To help us in achieving this goal, we created ministry choices such as Good News Across America and Good News Club for public schools. We also concentrate on introducing these to high potential growth countries.

Matthew 28:19

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations.”

Reaching Every Nation

We serve in an ever-expanding way. In each of our missions, we strive to reach every region of the world.

Psalm 119:2

“Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.”

Working Every Day

We are working towards our commitment to lead the children in a Christian way of life. We guide the children as they grow their relationship with Him and develop godly characters by meditating on His Word. Through this, the children bear fruit of the glory by spreading God’s Word to their peers. We use Wonder Devotional Books in Africa that have over 800,000 copies for sharing. Right now, our goal is to share the books with 500,000 children in Asia.

Our Community Today

We are involved in over 170 countries and are active in every state and province in North America. Our organization has a total of over 1,400 staff members.
