Global Action and Child Evangelism Fellowship Partnership Reaches Children in Developing Countries
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado: Global Action and Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) today announced their partnership in training pastors and ministry leaders in developing countries about the significance of children, teaching them to effectively share the love of Jesus with children. Their first joint effort saw about 150 church leaders trained in evangelizing children.
The partnership enhances the pastor training through Global Action’s Foundations program, equipping pastors to reach children in their respective communities. It provides CEF with a strategic method of spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ to children in the communities where Global Action’s 7,000+ trained pastors serve worldwide.
“We are excited to be working with CEF in this way,” said Bob Smith, Global Action Interim President. “Global Action is charged with creating Gospel Movements by training pastors and equipping them with tools for biblical understanding, leadership, outreach and compassion. God loves the children of the world and our partnership with CEF allows our trained pastors to more effectively fulfill the Great Commission by sharing the love of Christ with them.”
“Partnering with Global Action is another opportunity to train Christian leaders to effectively minister to children, a foundation of our ministry for 80,” said Reese Kauffman, President of CEF. “We both desire to see churches and congregations thrive in the developing countries and this collaboration helps both organizations toward that mission.”
