All repairs and custom wrap were completed back in 2015. Blacknall Presbyterian volunteers clean up and tune up the ministry trailer for another year of outreach events and camps.

After 14 years of use and thousands ministered to at outdoor events, sports camps, and block parties the CEF mobile stage with a thumping sound system is in great need or minor repairs and major detailing. The sound system has already been in/out of the shop. The electrical connections, cabinet repairs, and a complete re-detailing “wrap” of the trailer’s exterior still need to be completed. The retail price tag will be $3,000+. CEF is appreciative of your prayers and gifts for this project. READ MORE

Update on this 2014 ministry project

Back in 2015, all funds and necessary equipment were secured to totally repair and restore the CEF ministry trailer and mobile stage. The trailer exterior displays a new graphics wrap to identify CEF and what it does when visiting communities and city parks. Sports camps, clinics, academies, Good News Clubs, and community events are enhanced by the stage and sound system contained in the trailer. CEF was able to add a second trailer, custom-made, during the same year to carry sturdy 3v3 basketball goals and accessories when conducting basketball sports outreach events. Special thanks to Michael Harley for driving and delivering the trailers and for the volunteers at Blacknall Presbyterian Church in Durham for keeping to trailers and contents clean and repaired.

Sponsor city kids for camp

$100 sponsors a city kid to attend a week of sports camp at a More Than Gold camp or academy. These campers then have an opportunity to earn a week of overnight camping outside the city in the mountains near Asheville. To make this happen for 1,000 local city kids, More Than Gold Fitness and Sportsreach has launched a “Sponsor City Kids” campaign. Youth and adult athletic teams, companies, individuals and civic organizations are asked to sponsor city kids throughout 2013. Over 350 city kids have attended various sports camps and 6 city kids will be attending overnight camp at Camp Good News this summer. Thanks for supporting this effort. Image
