About CEF of MARCK

CEF of MARCK is the local chapter of Child Evangelism Fellowship in North Central Ohio. Child Evangelism Fellowship is a Bible-centered, world wide organization composed of born again believers whose purpose is to evangelize boys and girls with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, disciple them in the Word of God and establish them in Bible believing churches for Christian living. Our desire is to partner with churches to carry out the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).

Child Evangelism Fellowship was founded in 1937 by J. Irvin Overholtzer. The vision that our founder had to reach the whole world is still alive today. CEF now has a goal to be in every nation of the world by 2017, our 80th anniversary! There are 207 countries in the world, so we have just a few more countries to reach with the ministry of CEF.

The local chapter of Child Evangelism Fellowship® (CEF®) has been reaching children for Christ in the Mansfield area for over 60 years. Under the leadership of Dale Baer, the Local Director of the MARCK Chapter, the Local Committee has been led by the Lord to establish a goal of having a County Coordinator in all five counties by 2017.

This local chapter (CEF of MARCK) serves the following five counties of Ohio:
Morrow, Ashland, Richland, Crawford and Knox. Therefore we use the acrostic "MARCK".

CEF® cares about evangelizing children and helping them grow in Christ.


Our Vision:

Its simple - Every Child. Every Nation. Every Day.


Our Mission:

To evangelize 7,000 boys and girls annually by 2021 with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and to establish (disciple) them in the Word of God and in a local church for Christian living.


Our Purpose:

To evangelize boys and girls with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, disciple them in the Word of God, and establish them in Bible believing churches for Christian living. Through the Good News Clubs®, summer 5-Day Clubs®, Fair Ministry, Party Clubs and other events, we are reaching thousands of boys and girls in the five county area. Over 80% of these children are un-churched. In partnership with the local churches, CEF offers TRAINING, EVANGELISM and DISCIPLESHIP. By partnering with CEF, together we can evangelize children, disciple them and teach them Christian living skills in local Bible believing churches.

This past year the Lord enabled us to reach over 4,000 children with the Gospel and witnessed over 500 give their hearts to Christ. We feel burdened with a sense of urgency to reach many more children.

Please prayerfully consider how the Lord may lead you to partner with us to reach these precious children for Christ through CEF.

"Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish." Matthew 18:14 KJV
