I would like to thank you for clicking on our “Get Involved” tab. There are some basic categories where someone with a passion for Christ and an interest in children can get involved. The wonderful thing is that you do not have to pick just one.
Certain factors will help determine the best place for you. God has given you certain natural abilities, experience, spiritual gifts, and talents. Furthermore your availability will impact what you might plug into and how often you participate.
We are always in need of Prayer Partners that truly believe in the power of God in response to prayer. The easiest way to get involved here is to sign up to begin receiving our CEF Praise & Prayer Updates. Approximately bi-weekly we send out a single page communiqué highlighting the Praises (answers to prayer and unexpected blessings) and a few specific Prayer requests. We can send this to you either through an e-mail or by the US Postal Service.
Please download and complete our Step One Application. Because we maintain direct contact with children it is necessary that everyone participating with us has completed our background check, agrees with our Statement of Faith, and is willing to comply with our Doctrinal Protection Policy.
We have an ongoing need for financial supporters. Regular monthly givers help us to be able to budget what funds should be available to pay monthly bills, however special gifts help meet giving shortfalls or provide for ministry expansion. We have a Donate tab where you can give online or, if you prefer, you can send the money in by check or money order payable to “CEF.” If you have a preference where you would like your gift to be applied simply include a note on a separate piece of paper. Undesignated funds will be applied to the general fund and used where most needed at the time.
Correspondence should be mailed to:
CEF 2711 NW 6th Street, Suite #F
Gainesville, FL 32609.
We have many opportunities to get involved personally. It would be best to contact our office so that we can talk or even meet to discuss those things that you like to do along with your abilities and availability to see where you would enjoy serving the most. Here is a partial list of a few options:
All volunteers and staff at every level of CEF must have a background check. Click on this link to fill out the screening form. Have your drivers license handy and recent addresses prepared to enter.
