History of CEF of SHOES

Child Evangelism Fellowship of Ohio Inc. SHOES Chapter was not always the name of our chapter. In 1966 CEF of Ohio Inc, Sandusky Bay Area was formed. The chapter use to only have an area of responsibility of four counties Erie, Ottawa, Sandusky, and Seneca. The chapter won CEF's Gold Medallion award in 1997 for their vision, ability to organize, and efficiency in reaching children with the gospel.  In 2000 the chapter was renamed SHOES Area Chapter when Huron county was added to our responsibility. In 2001 CEF won in Supreme Court case allowing one of our flagship ministries called Good News Club on school property.

Today our chapter reaches over 3,000 people with the gospel working in 10 schools and participating in at least 4 county fairs. We look to reach more children every day with the gospel. Our goal is to be in every school in our chapter's area.

"All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen." (Matthew 28:18-20)
