Child Evangelism Fellowship® is a Bible-centered organization composed of born-again believers whose purpose is to evangelize boys and girls with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and to establish (disciple) them in the Word of God and in a local church for Christian living.

Our Vision

Every Child. Every Nation. Every Day.


Our State Director

Harry and Lydia Boekell have served with Child Evangelism Fellowship® of West Virginia Inc. over 40 years. Many of those years were spent as the Local Director in Huntington, WV. Nine years ago, Harry transitioned to be the State Director.

They have a daughter and a son and enjoy visits from the grandchildren often.

As an adjunct professor with Children’s Ministry Institute® Harry has traveled to Ghana, West Africa, to teach and facilitate the Teaching Little Kids Course. He is certified to Instruct Teaching Children Effectively Level 1 and 2, along with the Teaching Little Kids Course.

Pray for the Boekells as they traverse the many miles to visit the chapters throughout the state, especially those chapters who currently do not have Local Directors (Little Kanawha Valley and North Central).
