Zach Darrow- Youth Director Field Missionary

Zach Darrow

Youth Director and Club Coordinator



When I was a boy prayed with mom to receive Jesus as my Savior. I had a childlike trust and assurance in God. I would mostly attribute that to growing up in a firmly christian home. My dad’s a pastor and missionary in inner city Philadelphia. (Cornerstone Community Church) I learned about God my whole life. It wasn’t hard to make that decision to follow Him. However, making that decision has impacted my life tremendously! It has not been easy by any means, but worth it. I am so thankful for my Father in Heaven and how he has led my life. I have been blessed with godly parents and solid role models. I believe God has put these people in my life to impact and teach me in many ways. The ministry of Child Evangelism Fellowship has played a major part in my life. I began as a summer missionary when I was a teen. Throughout high school, my summers were focused on serving in C.E.F. When I graduated, I attended a Gap year program with Score International in Costa Rica. While there, I took Spanish classes, Bible classes, and served in various ministries. I attended for a year and returned as an Intern with the program for a second year. I am grateful for all the people I met and all I learned through the experience. Since I returned, I have been working full time with C.E.F. I believe that God has used all my experiences to prepare me to serve Him. It is obvious to me that God opened the door for me to be here. Serving in ministry is often very hard. However, I am so grateful to be in God’s will. There is a great peace and joy in knowing that. Also, God is using me to bring hope to children and teens! I am a tool in the Kingdom of Heaven. There is no greater satisfaction!

Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God, we do not lose heart. 2 But we have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways. We refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God’s word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God. 3 And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. 4 In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 5 For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.                                           – 2 Corinthians 4:1-6
