Patti Hale Hired to Facilitate CEF Ministries

Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) of Greater Jackson has hired area resident Patti Hale to help coordinate the organization’s ministry to West Tennessee children.

Hale is a native of West Tennessee, but has lived across the country with her husband, Steve. The Hales have seven grown children, all of whom Patti homeschooled over a period of 28 years.

She also has extensive experience working with children in local churches through children’s church programs, AWANA Clubs, and CEF Clubs across the country. Hale also served five years with AWANA Clubs International headquarters in Streamwood, Illinois assisting U.S. churches with international outreach, and in donor and customer relations. She pursued a music degree at Belmont College, Nashville and Union University, Jackson, and a business degree at Rock Valley College, Rockford, Illinois.

“I believe young children can truly believe and follow Jesus Christ and when given the opportunity, can become faithful, active Christians,” Hale said. “I have devoted most of my adult life to this purpose and am grateful for this opportunity to serve with our local CEF partner churches and volunteers in reaching children.”

In the new position, Hale will coordinate and train volunteers while providing oversight for all existing and new Good News Clubs in area schools, 5-Day Clubs, Summer programs and special event and party clubs.
