This year we are launching the CEF Creative Excellence Award celebrating all the ways our local churches are engaging their congregations and their communities in creative Christian education ministry.

To nominate your congregation, please submit a Creative Excellence Award application form by April 15, 2022. This form asks for basic information regarding your congregation, leadership team, and a short description (2-3 paragraphs) of a creative Christian education program or event you held between 2020 and 2022.

All ministries will be showcased at the luncheon, and receive a certificate recognizing “Creative Excellence in Christian Education”.

Details about the luncheon will be updated on this page as they become available.



Nominations are now open for the 2022 Dick Murray Award which recognizes a special individual who has contributed to higher professional standards in the field of Christian education, and who has given significant leadership to Christian education in the Texas Annual Conference.
