CEF was founded by Jesse Irvin Overholtzer in 1937.
It wasn't long before local chapters of Child Evangelsim Fellowship began to spread throughout the United States.
In January of 1969, the South Central Area Chapter came into being under the oversight of then State Director, Earl Funderburg.
Since that time our Local Chapter has been led by
1969 - 1973 Earl Funderburg
1973 - 1974 Wayne Funderburg
19?? - 1979 Fred Hedberg
1983 - Trish Gustafson
