Funds, Stocks, and Sponsorship donations to CEF Durham go towards funding its various local ministries. This year (2022), God has continued to bless CEF Durham with funding to cover ministry expenses. As we go forward, new and even more exciting work has been shown for Durham. We, as with other CEF ministries worldwide, know and trust that God’s Work, Done God’s Way, Will Never Lack God’s Supply. Thank you to all supporters. For this coming year, we hope you will continue to stand with us and give. There will be a need in 2023 for new staff/supporters for us to go forward. Please pray and invite others to support this ministry.

Kingdom-Building with GNC Teachers

CEF Durham has 50+ teachers for club activities within schools/neighborhoods. We need more teachers to minister in area schools and communities. Michael Harley and other volunteers work with families of our Good News Clubs to support them with basic needs – food, furniture – plus the Gospel is presented and shown in love for God’s children on a regular basis.

During 2022-2023, Bible Lessons will be taught in local communities and schools from the Old and New Testaments as follows: God: The One Who Knows, My Heart (David), God Rules: Be Strong (Daniel), God: The One to Follow (Peter) CEF offers 6 sessions of U-Nite clubs on our YouTube channel where songs, Bible verses, and activities are accessible to clubs.

Volunteers for CEF

John Blake, Director CEF and Camps for City Kids

These classes and sports camps (Bible, Power & Light, Reading, Etiquette, Basketball, Soccer, Tennis, Pickleball, and Black-Top games) went four weeks from June 13-July 8th. Tennis, Basketball, Pickleball & Soccer sports camps were held in conjunction with Camps for City Kids and the DNS Reading Camp.

Fun play, basic skills, and court fitness are offered by Doc Blake, summer staff members, and “Mak” our intern. Dr. David, Pastor Harley, Jamo, Ms. Jackie, and Mak (above) conducted classes to build character for campers, understand their power, and change things in their world.

It’s difficult to put an exact dollar amount on the service, food, transportation, care, and academic enrichment that we provide. But know that we are providing each family a service valued between $50 and $400 per week  for summer camp. As a father, I know the face-value/dollar importance of that.

However, the real difference is the energy and kindness each of you bring. As a team, we have been consistently reliable and nice, which is always the goal each summer. As a result, and thanks to your efforts and attention to our students, the Jenny Koortbojian Reading Camp will successfully conclude tomorrow. 

Thank you so much for keeping our campers safe, engaged, and full of joy. For tomorrow, we have a bunch of food and beach toys; have some fun!
