Good News Club® is a ministry of Child Evangelism Fellowship in which trained teachers meet with groups of children in schools, homes, community centers, churches, apartment complexes, just about anywhere the children can easily and safely meet with their parent’s permission. Each week the teacher presents an exciting Bible lesson using colorful materials from CEF. This action-packed time also includes songs, Scripture memory, a missions story and review games or other activities focused on the lesson’s theme.
As with all CEF ministries, the purpose of Good News Club is to evangelize boys and girls with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and establish (disciple) them in the Word of God and in a local church for Christian living.
I grew up in a Christian family and so as a child I attended church. The Lord blessed me with wonderful parents, but even so, I did not seek after God and instead I wanted my friends to like me.
I went to Sunday School each Sunday but I didn’t like it, in fact I was really bored. The only thing that kept me going was the fact that we received tea and biscuits.
When I was 10 (in 2001), a Good News Club opened in my area (at that time I had never heard of Good News Club). I attended out of curiosity (I wasn’t forced by my parents to attend), and I really liked it. It was interesting as there were not just church children there, but I was able to attend with my friends from the neighbourhood. I even started to invite my friends and we would go together. I remember those days fondly and I really looked forward to each meeting. There were about 20 of us and it was really nice.
God worked in my life and after I finished high school,I attended Bible College and began to serve the Lord. I completed my studies in 2014 and began to minister as Pastor. Currently, by the grace of God, I am serving in 3 local churches.Even though I am now a pastor, I never forgot the importance of working with children.
