Reach EVERY School
Since 1937, Child Evangelism Fellowship’s purpose is to evangelize children, disciple them in the Bible and establish them in a local church. Our global vision statement is Every Child – Every Nation – Every Day!
CEF Dallas serves Collin and Dallas Counties as our primary mission field (plus Denton, Grayson, Kaufman, Rockwall counties). Within these two counties there are 536 elementary schools, 770,000 family households and 300,000+ elementary school age children in the public school system.
How can we reach Every Child? By reaching Every School and the neighborhoods in that school zone – all 536 elementary school zones!
Your local elementary school zone is your nearest mission field and your church already has Gospel workers living there – the members residing near your church. The Lord strategically planted your church where it is to take Gospel responsibility for this mission field. As a Kingdom outpost, your church is called to pray for and bring the Good News to these family households, especially to the children who live there.
Why reach children? Because reaching children is the most vital area of ministry any local church can undertake. Studies find most people make a decision to follow Christ before the age of 12. An individual’s moral compassion is set by 9 years of age. After age 19, only 6% will come to Christ. We must make reaching the children of North Texas a priority for the 2020s!
Today, we have an increasingly urgent need to reach children with the Gospel. Atheism has doubled with Gen Z (those born between 1995 and 2015). While 59% of this young generation identify with some sort of theistic religion and 7% associate themselves with another faith, 35% percent articulate some form of skepticism. Only 4% adhere to a Biblical worldview, making Gen Z our nation’s 1st Post-Christian generation. Kids don’t know Jesus!
CEF Dallas partners with your church to reach out to these children and their families. We are making available the tools, technology and training that will help you reach every child and bless every home.
Today’s technology makes reaching every child in your school zone simple
When your churches registers with Reach Every School and adopts your school zone or zones, we will send you a FREE 36-page demographic report of your adopted area. PLUS you will receive a list of neighbors with children in the household. Download a sample report.
As you take Gospel responsibility for your adopted school zone(s), begin in prayer. The best way to do this is with through our partner Bless Every Home. Our partner ministry makes it possible to pray for the children and their families by name in your community.
