CEF Central Chapter is part of the largest ministry to children in the world. We are non-denominational and Bible-centered. Our mission is to reach children with the Good News of Jesus Christ, disciple them in the Word of God and help establish them in local churches.
Our Vision: To provide each elementary age child in the Southeast chapter an opportunity to hear of and respond to saving Gospel message of Jesus Christ.
Our Goal: To reach 5,000 children in the next 5 years.
Michael and Autumn Peña, along with their daughters Micaiah and Annaiah, serve as the CEF missionaries for Central Chapter. Michael and Autumn have been walking with the Lord since 2005, and have had the privileged of being mentored by a dear couple who walked with the Lord for 30 years. Before moving to Nebraska, Michael and Autumn were stationed in Bellingham, WA, where Michael served in the US Coast Guard. He served in the Coast Guard for 10 1/2 years where he achieved much success.
In 2015, the Peña’s moved back Nebraska where Michael served in law enforcement, but the Lord continued to stir their hearts towards missions; a desire He had placed in their heart while in Bellingham. Over the next five years, they continued to cross paths with CEF. The call to missions continued to tug at their hearts, fanning their desire to light the world on fire for Christ. Finally, in September of 2020, the Lord brought the pieces together and in November of 2020, they accepted the call to serve full-time with CEF in the Central Chapter.

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)

We’ve been assigned a great work and we could do so much more if we had one more person – just one more – helping us reach Every Child, Every Nation, Every Day. That person is you!
