Churches having Bible clubs in public schools – is this a dream? No, it’s happening!

Churches around the world are ministering to children through Good News Clubs in public schools and other venues. In June 2001 this privilege was extended to Good News Clubs in the United States with an historic Supreme Court ruling.

God has opened the doors of public schools to the Gospel! CEF is ready and eager to help churches enter the schools, fully equipped to share the Gospel, teach the Bible to school children and extend the biblical influence to families.


CEF offers church partners:

  • A strategic plan
  • Materials
  • Training
  • Support
  • Mentoring


Through a God-centered partnership between the local church and CEF, children’s lives change and churches grow.

Churches come to the partnership with the most important ingredient, God’s people. A team from your church will bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the school children. CEF offers specialized training for volunteers from your church and all the materials necessary for teachers and workers.

CEF takes care of the major logistics of getting a club started, such as, contacting the school, providing liability insurance, completing facility use forms and conducting background checks as required.

To find out if a school in your neighbourhood is available to adopt, call or contact the office of CEF of Greater Chattanooga.
