Volunteer Application Process

Good News Clubs® & Sunday School

CEF® offers some of the best training for teachers for either Good News Clubs® or Sunday School. Teachers learn how to take any lesson and make sure the gospel is presented in a clear, interesting way that is designed to challenge the Christian boy or girl and to present the gospel to children so they will know the way of salvation. CEF® trained teachers are always ready to go into a classroom and teach a lesson on a moment’s notice if necessary. CEF® trained teachers are a great asset to any church.

The Shasta Chapter offers free trainings throughout the year for Good News Clubs® teachers. These trainings usually cover the curriculum for the year, special holiday lessons, how to teach songs, verses and other gospel activities and games.

CEF® also has other trainings that further the abilities of teachers. These are accredited courses and can be used for credits for certain credentials. There is a minimum number of people that must attend these courses and they range from $85-$150 or so, depending on the instructors and number of students involved. We hope to host one of these courses in our area soon. Anyone interested should contact our local CEF office.

There are also online courses that can be taken by CEF® by going to the website, you can enroll in the courses offered online. These are also accredited courses.

Christian Youth in Action® (CYIA™) & 5-Day Club®

This is our training more specifically for those 13-? Our regular Good News club training is open to anyone, as this training is also, but this is predominantly youth oriented. We train teens to teach a 5-Day Club®. CYIA™ stands for Christian Youth in Action® and there is a camp every summer at Mtn. Meadows camp in Viola in June that is dedicated to training the youth to teach Bible stories, songs, mission’s stories, verses, games and more in a 5-day format. The youth then take their training and become missionaries for the summer by doing a minimum of 3 clubs each in backyard clubs or helping churches by putting on a Vacation Bible School for 5 days.

There is a kit that the youth get that includes their Bible story, Mission story, song visuals, CD, verse visual, Wordless Book, and other papers that help them with the clubs. These kits usually cost about $50, which is our price plus the shipping and handling charges. The Shasta CEF® office does not charge more than the materials cost us. Camp cost is about $235. Applications for camp usually come out in March and are due back by May 1st for processing and a $25 discount. Final date for applications is   June 1st. Camp for 2013 is June 15-21.

Youth that attend CYIA or the 5-Day Club® training will become your greatest asset and leaders of the future. Every church should have CEF® trained youth.   Following are the links to the 2012 camp registration.  Please note that all forms must be returned to OUR office, not the state office.

Fair Training

We provide training in late May or early June each year in how to teach the Wordless Book. This is the main teaching tool we use at the fairs that we attend and set up a booth. It is a simple basic tool for sharing the gospel. It can also be used as a tool for open air ministry.

Teaching Materials

CEF® materials are high-quality, biblically sound and Christ centered. Attractive visuals and interactive elements keep the kids’ attention while the truth of God’s Word impacts their hearts. Unsaved children hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ and are invited to receive Him as Savior. Saved children are challenged to grow in their faith in specific ways each lesson.

CEF® has everything you need to help you share God’s truth with boys and girls. There is a wide variety of products available through CEF® Press:
