The CEF seeks to infiltrate the public schools in order to indoctrinate small children with the viewpoint that their fundamentalist Christian principles and dogma are the only truth. They operate so-called Good News Clubs whose mission is to convert the children to their religious dogma and use them as a cadre to induct other children (and even their parents) into their circle. Their message to the children is that any other religious beliefs (or none) will bring down the wrath of God on them, their families, and their friends. They bring adult leaders (armed with cookies, candy, and balloons) into elementary and middle school classrooms immediately following the school day and engage the children in Christian-based activities. To the children, the adult leaders are indistinguishable from their teachers, giving them the same mantle of authority for everything they say. The schools are virtually powerless to resist this invasion because of a bizarre 2001 Supreme Court ruling (Good News Club v. Milford Central School) which, stated simply, their practice of religion was merely free speech of a "viewpoint" and thereby protected by the 1st Amendment "free speech" clause. Their activity has divided and destroyed communities, schools, even families. The complete story is extensively documented in a book entitled "The Good News Clubs", by Katherine Stewart.

How does this organization compare with others in the same sector?

Child Evangelism Fellowship shares the Good News of Salvation through Jesus to thousands upon thousands of children around the world- each year. Many organizations make current living conditions better for children- Child Evangelism Fellowship offers an eternal difference! I know of no other missions organization that sees more people brought to salvation each year than CEF.
