What you can do

We are praying to the Lord that He will send out more labourers into the harvest field to reach more children with the Gospel throughout South Africa. Join us in this mission to make a lasting impact on the lives of kids across South Africa. CEF South Africa needs both volunteers and full-time local missionaries, and we provide training and resources to equip them.
