*Go Training is a pilot program of CEF of North Dakota with the permission of Child Evangelism Fellowship, Inc.

Have you ever wanted to make a difference, impact someone’s life forever, and have a lot of fun while doing it?

If you have, then serving as a CEF summer missionary is perfect for you!

As a summer missionary, you’ll share the Good News of Jesus with kids right here in North Dakota.

You’ll start your summer with training. During the training, you’ll learn how to share the Gospel, how to teach Bible Lessons and Scripture memory verses, and how to lead songs and games for kids.

Then, over the rest of the summer, you’ll use what you’ve learned to  teach kids about God through backyard Bible clubs (called Go Clubs) and other children’s ministries.
