For decades, Child Evangelism Fellowship hired missionaries to teach summer Bible clubs throughout Chattanooga. The problem was that when the missionaries left, there was little follow-up with youth.

This year, the nonprofit organization is attempting to fix that problem by partnering with local churches and training their young people to conduct the Bible clubs. Churches then will be responsible for following up with participants to see if they have questions or if they want to start attending a church.
