CEF of Black Hawk with the help of Hope City Church in Waterloo is partnering to reach the children of Waterloo.

This event will have hundreds of people attend and hear the Good News! 

Please carefully read and follow the instructions below on how you can volunteer to help bring the Good News to the children of the Waterloo area. 


Follow the steps below to become a screened volunteer at the Good News Spectacular. Please note because of working with children, we are required and will verify every person volunteering has had a background check with either Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) or Hope City Church

1. If you are a previous CEF volunteer and have done a background screening within the past five years and are an active volunteer, you may skip to step #4

2. If you are a member of Hope City Church and have completed a background screening that we can verify, please skip to step #4

3. If step 1 or 2 does not apply to you, please follow the 4 steps below in order.
