About Us

Child Evangelism Fellowship of Central Maine is a local chapter of Child Evangelism Fellowship of Maine Inc.. Our mission is to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the boys and girls of the Knox, Waldo, Penobscot, Piscataquis, and Somerset counties. All personnel agree annually to teach the truths of the CEF Statement of Faith to the boys and girls.

The Central Maine ministry is overseen by a committee which is made up of:
Mr. & Mrs. Gerald Blodgett, Miss Priscilla Dean, Mr. & Mrs. Russell Lowe, Betty Pratt, Pastor & Mrs. Gil Reed, Rev. Sam Mckeen and Mr. John Hersey. The staff members are Brad Walker (director) and Jonathan Dowdy.

Our Committee

The local chapter is governed by a committee of people concerned with the souls of children. It functions under CEF of Maine Inc, and is the official body responsible for the work of the fellowship in Knox, Waldo, Penobscot, Piscataquis, and Somerset counties. The local directer and staff report on a regular basis to the committee.
