Jessica trusted in Jesus at age five after receiving a Bible with CEF devotions in it. She grew up going to Good News Club, graduated to a GNC helper and teacher, and attended Christian Youth In Action as a teen. In 2014, she attended Children’s Ministries Institute, and was hired as Administrative Assistant at the CEF of Oregon state office starting in January 2015. A year later, Jessica was called to her current role, where she enjoys organizing ministries, working with CYIA students, and watching children discover Jesus for the first time. She also writes curriculum for CEF International Ministries.
Peter Hamilton decided to call Jesus his own Savior at the age of seven after meeting with his dad regularly. In 2015, God placed on his heart to join Christian Youth in Action and teach kids about the Gospel of Christ. Upon completing his fifth year of CYIA, he attended the fall term ministry school Children’s Ministries Institute, a school held by Child Evangelism Fellowship. After completing training, Peter responded to the call to join the ministry of CEF of Klamath-Lake as an ARISE! Intern. Now he works to further the ministry to reach all the kids and teens in the Klamath-Lake area.
