Child Evangelism Fellowship of Mississippi, Inc., (CEF) currently serves children within the state of Mississippi in nine counties in partnership with ten school districts in our Good News Clubs and after school programs. 


The Greater Jackson Chapter of CEF MS in partnership with the City of Jackson, Office of Human and Cultural Services is proud to present our Restorative Arts Project (RAP) which sets as its priority enhancing and expanding the creative voice of children in Jackson Mississippi through artistic expression. Our project recognizes that restoring young people can restore families, who will then restore communities. ​

Our project includes on site or virtual instruction to introduce young people, grades preschool to 12th, to artistic expression. All the children in grades preschool -12th, will be encouraged to present their favorite artistic work at a virtual art fair for their family and friends. Those young people in grades preschool through 12 who are interested, are invited to receive virtual artistic instruction to assist them in creating the art projects of their choice. At the end of the summer, the art projects will be presented before their families and community members at a virtual art show/ contest. The three best projects from the preschool through 1st grade group, the 2nd – 5th grade group, the 6th – 8th grade group, and from the 9th through 12th grade group will receive a prize and be invited to present their project at the Mississippi State fair or a Statewide Virtual Arts exhibit for special recognition.
