CEF First Tuesdays

“Leaders Lead”

Our Leaders Lead event for October 4th features Jake Greiss!  Jake was born in Grand Island and was on track to become a doctor.  While studying pre-med at UNL and participating on the track team, he had a radical shift of plans–going from a career as a doctor to an overseas missionary.  It was at UNL, after growing up in a Christian home, that Jake turned his life over to God.  For five years, prior to COVID-19, he was working for God in a “closed country.”  Because of the pandemic, God redirected him, his wife, Kate and their four kids back to Lincoln, NE.  He currently serves as a missionary working with the Jesus Film Project.  The Jesus film has been translated into over 2000 languages and is the most watched film in the history of film.  You won’t want to miss him share how his faith in Christ inspires him in navigating leadership both personally and professionally.

Reach a Child, Change a LIFE

Million Dollar Miracle Drive

This incredible goal is only possibly as the Lord provides through His people (you).  

GOAL: Pledges toward $1 million to be reach by December 31, 2026

* This can be accomplished easily if 250 people would pledge to give $67 per month for five years.

Prayer is so vital.  Prayer cannot change anything, but it connects us to the One who can do the impossible.  We would count it a privilege to pray for and with you.  Please share any praises or prayer requests with us.                  ~ The CEF Team

How can we pray for you?

Bibles 2 Kids Project

Help raise enough money to provide a Bible for 1,000 children who attend a Good News Club in Nebraska.  For $20, a child will receive a bright cinch sack with a durable hardback children’s Bible, fun activity books, a wordless book bracelet, and some meaningful bookmarks.  Join us in raising $20,000 by the end of May so we can place the Bibles in the hands of the children, most of whom do not have their own Bible.

Professions of Faith

Serving the Local Church

Our goal is to serve alongside pastors to accomplish the vision and mission of their local church. Pastor/teachers and evangelists were given to the local church “for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ…” (Ephesians 4:11-12)


“CEF reaches out to the little ones to share with them the love of Jesus Christ.”

Brad, Via Facebook

“I have worked with the team at CEF for the past few years. Great group of people.”

Nathan, Via Facebook

“We so appreciate CEF!.”

Pastor Scott C.

“My wife and I “found” CEF and began to teach/host Good News Clubs and 5-Day Clubs as soon as we found these wonderful tools, and we delighted in the chance to support the CEF ministry.”

The most spiritually productive harvest field anywhere is among the children. Statistics show that the great majority of people who accept Christ do so between the ages of four and fourteen – when they are children.  Will you prayerfully invest to help reach more children for Christ?
