The health and well-being of everyone involved with CEF is a top priority. As we respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to trust a sovereign God and seek His wisdom.

Below, you’ll find the latest updates on our response. If you have any questions or concerns, as always, you are welcome to contact us.


Latest Ministry Updates


Christian Youth in Action (CYIA):

Due to pandemic-related circumstances beyond our control, CYIA training will not be held at Mount Carmel Camp this year. 

Instead, we will be doing a combination of online and local in-person training over the scheduled dates, June 2-11, 2020.  Fully online training options will be available to those who prefer not to meet in person. The adjusted fee for this training will be $175. 

Registered CYIA students, check your emails for more information. More specifics about local details will be coming from your local directors soon.

If students decide not to do CYIA training, this year, they should contact their local director. Any funds they have already paid will be refunded.                                      

Camp Good News: 

It is with heavy hearts that we are announcing Camp Good News will be canceled for this summer. There were many things, some beyond our control, that went into this decision. If you have already registered your child, we will be in touch with you and you will be fully refunded.

Please watch for information on 5-Day Clubs and other ministry happening near you.

Thank you to all those who were ready to volunteer and serve at camp this summer. We will see you all back at camp in 2021!

Good News Club: 

Some clubs have moved online; members of these clubs have recieved access info. For the latest update on your particular club, please contact your local CEF staff

Flexible cancellation/refund policy

If we need to cancel an event or if you need to cancel your registration for any reason, we’ll offer a full refund of all funds paid.

If we need to offer a program in an alternative format (online, etc), we’ll offer a discounted registration fee or partial refund as merited.
