About CEF Mid-Columbia


Julie Fritts

Julie Fritts, Local Director

[Contact Julie]

Julie accepted Jesus as a child of seven and knows that a child can personally know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. This is the reason she said YES to being the Director of Mid-Columbia CEF in 2008. As Director, Julie oversees the training of teachers in the Good News Club curriculum, visits churches to tell of the work of CEF and how they can be involved in reaching the children in their community, and even gets to have "feet on the ground" by being involved in three Good News Clubs. God is doing mighty things in the Mid-Columbia and you can be a part of that by impacting children for eternity through Good News Clubs and 5-Day Clubs in your community.

Lorna Van Hee, Office Manager

[Contact Lorna]

My name is Lorna Van Hee. I was raised in a Christian family and became a Christian at an early age. My husband and I have 3 adult children, and recently moved from Medford, Oregon to The Dalles. I heard that CEF was hiring for office staff, so I applied and have been here almost 3 months. CEF has long been a part of my life. My Mom was a CEF teacher and later my sister was a Director in CEF. I am glad to be working with CEF and excited to be able to help out in Good News Club as well.
