October 2020

Has 2020 felt like you’ve lost control in some way? Well…let this sink in for a moment…

You’re not in control and you never have been.

September 2020

Child Evangelism Fellowship® exists for to fulfill three purposes:

August 2020

Leviticus 26:10 says, “You will still be eating last year’s harvest when you will have to move it out to make room for the new.” (NIV) The way this verse in this particular translation reads really jumped off the pages of scripture to me recently. It was if the Holy Spirit had just sent me a text message.

July 2020

Patrick Henry is known for several things including being the first post-colonial governor of Virginia, one of the founding fathers of our great country, and his “Give me Liberty, or give me death!” speech. However, we should truly appreciate him for quotes like this, “It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians, not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ!”

June 2020

Over the past three months around the globe we have seen things change moment by moment! These are exciting, yet uncertain days! We know God is busy about working His plan and fulfilling His prophetic promises that these things will happen.

May 2020

This month the only words I want to share are directly God’s Words and not mine. May His truths strengthen your minds and encourage your hearts at this time…

April 2020

The Great Commission is something I am sure that all of you know about and have heard of to some degree. It’s the Lord’s command to “Go” and evangelize and disciple others

March 2020

“Yield.” When we think of this word we probably think about the road sign telling us to slow down and watch for oncoming traffic.

February 2020

Separation anxiety disorder is defined as “an anxiety disorder in which an individual experiences excessive anxiety regarding separation from home and/or from people to whom the individual has a strong emotional attachment (e.g., a parent, caregiver, significant other or siblings).”

January 2020

Believe it or not, it’s 2020. While growing up, we all heard the adults around us talk about how time was just flying by. And, if you were like us, none of you believed that. It seemed like 100 years between your birthdays, and the 24 days leading up Christmas seemed like 1,000 years. But as we get older, the more and more we realize just how fast time truly flies by.

December 2019

Let the words of this glorious hymn, “To God be the Glory” speak to you today.

November 2019

Weekend mode. That’s what our boys call from Friday afternoon to Sunday evening.

Child Evangelism Fellowship’s ministry calendar runs from September 1-August 31. This way all of the statistics for the school year and summer ministries can be totaled together. For this past CEF Ministry year, September 1, 2018-August 31, 2019, the CEF of Greater Huntington Chapter reached 4,623 children and 293 of those children made first-time decisions for Christ and 79 previously unchurched children were established in local Bible believing churches!!! What a blessing!

September 2019

CEF of Greater Huntington is privileged to serve Good News Clubs® in Cabell, Lincoln, Logan, Mason, Mingo, Putnam, and Wayne counties in West Virginia, Boyd County in Kentucky, and Lawrence County in Ohio. In 2018 we trained and supported Good News Clubs® that were served by 624 local Tri-State church volunteers who reached 2,763 local children. Over the past 5 years we have seen 1,399 students profess faith in Jesus Christ alone as their Savior and 508 students established in a local church. God is blessing this important work.

This is a testimony from one of our Good News Clubs® from this past school year…

July 2019

This entry is meant to last as a memorial for my loving Brother in Christ, friend, and ministry partner Mike Jarrett. You truly were one of the greatest men and best friends I ever had in my life! You are GREATLY missed and can never be replaced, but don’t worry my friend, I will continue PROCLAIMING the GOSPEL to the kids until we are joined together again in Heaven! I sing “HALLELUJAH” for your eternal reward! Give our LORD JESUS a MILLION kisses for me until I can do it myself!!! Thanks for loving me and always having my back!

June 2019

Here’s a testimony from one of our Good News Club Coordinators that she shared recently:

“There have been so many children that stand out in my mind over the years, but the Lord brought this to my mind recently.

May 2019

An Affirmation from John Killinger:

I believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God, who was born of the promise to a virgin named Mary. I believe in the love Mary gave her son, that caused her to follow Him in His ministry and stand by His cross as He died.

April 2019

In “Like the Flowing River” by Paulo Coelho, there is a story called the Parable of the Pencil. Below is the gist of the story.

March 2019

“In like a lion, out like a lamb” or “In like a lamb, out like a lion” is traditionally what we think of in March. It got me thinking about THE LAMB.

A message I recently heard pointed out that God loves us so much that when a man sinned, he could take a lamb to the area priest and the man was never examined for what he had done. The priest would examine the lamb and if the lamb was perfect, then the man was off the hook. If the lamb was not perfect, then the man had a problem. The man was never held accountable, the lamb was.
