The mission of CREF is to make Christ known to the whole world by reaching out to the lost, winning them to Christ, teaching them to obey Christ, developing them into mature Christians, and ministering to their needs. The leadership team consists of called, qualified and well-equipped people in the fields of theology, sociology, education, finances and leadership managerial skills.
