The Greater Baltimore Chapter (GBC) was the first chapter of Child Evangelism Fellowship® of Maryland. Currently, we are the largest chapter embracing elementary school children in Baltimore City and Baltimore County.
Trained volunteers in excess of 400 are reaching 1100 children weekly in after-school Good News Clubs (GNC).


Bible-Based Curriculum
Designed curriculum by our 83 year old Child Evangelism Fellowship international organization is presented in ongoing educational workshops. Our GNC leaders absorb the gospel message into their hearts and make the Bible come alive! Bible lessons with repetitive messages are shared in scripture memory, Christian songs and games. The curriculum is carefully designed to address the children’s learning style with a clear Bible message.

Bible-Based Church Partnerships
The Greater Baltimore Chapter’s goal is to increase our partnerships with Bible-believing churches to sponsor one or more of the 335 elementary schools in Baltimore City and County. The Chapter’s ministry is growing and we have a strategic plan in place for continued development.
The children and families that are represented in the numbers reached is phenomenal, but we are challenged to reach more children! What a difference we can make if children and youth come to know Christ as their Savior!  As such, Baltimore would be a changed city!


Our local board is progressive and goal-oriented while overseeing the ministry in the Greater Baltimore area. More board members are needed. Do you have skills to manage a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization? We need Christians with skills in promotion and marketing, personnel management, administration, website management, grant-writing, and fundraising. Other skills are also sought after that can assist with building God’s Kingdom among children, youth, and their families.
We can reach hundreds of children in the 2022-2023 school year. Your volunteer participation will help us to expand our territories. Join our effort to get the Bible and prayer back into Baltimore schools through our after-school Good News Club program! Please email H. Marie Dunsen-Dawson, Director at cefbaltimore@gmail.com or call (410) 944-6435 to discuss how God is speaking to you to become involved. Your support to the children is eternal. There are many volunteer opportunities available!
