Here's A Sneak Peak of the Evening:

The Children

Tune in to hear directly from kids who are in Good News Clubs!
They will sing for you, recite verses they have memorized and tell you why your continued partnership is so necessary and important.

Joel Cripe, Master of Ceremonies

Joel has been on staff with CEF for 19 years in both South Dakota and California; he currently serves as the local director in the Modesto area. Joel's passion for evangelism, children and the gospel shine through whenever he speaks.

He and his wife Nadya (seen right) have two adult daughters; Rebekka & Sydney. Joel & Nadya have gone on numerous short-term missions trips with CEF, including trips to Montenegro, Ghana, Aruba & Serbia.

Ministry Update

Our local director, Becca Lamont, will share what God accomplished in 2020 and where He is leading us in 2021. The ways that we see God moving on a daily basis will encourage you that He is not done with us (Philippians 1:6).
