The Lakeland Child Evangelism Ministries Inc is located in
Northeastern Indiana, a place of rich spiritual heritage.
Its mailing address is Winona Lake, home of Billy Sunday,
home of Grace Theological Seminary & College, former home
of the Free Methodist Church World Headquarters, former home
of Winona Lake School of Theology, former home of the Winona
Lake Christian Assembly, former home of American Association
for Jewish Evangelism, etc.
This ministry is a continuation of a long-standing outreach
to children founded by the late J. Irwin Overholtzer in 1937.
His vision of evangelizing and discipling children was based
upon a solidly biblical doctrinal foundation as best articulated
in numerous teaching/training materials which he compiled.
Although the Lakeland CEM is organizationally unaffiliated
today, it is committed to perpetuating the vision, program,
and biblical teachings of the Overholtzers.
The Lakeland CEM is governed by a rather large and strong
Board of Directors with a keen sense of spiritual accountability
to the Lord and to godly pastors and churches.
In recent decades, the ministry of the Lakeland CEM has become
increasingly committed to and involved in worldwide outreach
through its film and video productions.
Details of the worldwide outreach are given under the icon
"Films/Videos", and Teacher Training"
