Every good ministry has success because of two things: God, by whom we are saved, and a staff that serves Him. Here at CEF of Benton County, our goal is always to reach out to children and teens, and bring them to the knowledge of Jesus Christ their savior. All of our staff members, interns, Summer Missionaries, and volunteers are dedicated to seeing this goal accomplished through whatever ways God has called them to serve Him.

Look below to learn more about each member of our team, how they serve God through CEF, what’s on their heart for ministry, and some of the prayer requests they have.

Robin Cordova,

Robin Cordova

Ministry Coordinator

Robin first became involved with CEF through an invitation from a friend to attend our Camp Good News! Robin has since then served in our Christian Youth In Action program for five years, been a counselor for many years in our Camp Good News, and taught Good News Club. Robin has a heart to see children reached for Christ and her passion for the Lord is infectious!

Robin graduated from Children’s Ministries Institute in November 2021 and is so excited to continue to serve the Lord with CEF. When she is not working with CEF, Robin can be found serving many other places! She also enjoys serving with the youth at her church, spending time with her family, and riding her unicycle.
Please pray for Robin as she continues to serve with us!
