Pastor Doug Williams

Pastor Doug Williams

Executive Director

Over thirty years ago, when Doug attended Summer Missionary Training School in 1985, a seed was planted that would grow into a passion for God’s Word and a desire to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with others.  This led to a vocational call of serving Jesus Christ for over twenty years in various ministry positions.  He has worked with children in CHILD EVANGELISM FELLOWSHIP OF EASTERN PENNSYLVANIA, INC., college students with Campus Crusade for Christ, and all ages while pastoring in several churches throughout the years.

From that summer to this day, he kept the ministry of CHILD EVANGELISM FELLOWSHIP OF EASTERN PENNSYLVANIA, INC. close to his heart and life.  In years past, he partnered with CEF to redevelop the children’s ministries when he pastored two churches.  But the greatest impact has been in his own family when his daughter, Brooke, attended Good News Club and accepted Jesus Christ as a child.  He accepted the role as Executive Director of CHILD EVANGELISM FELLOWSHIP OF EASTERN PENNSYLVANIA, INC. to continue the mission of answering that question for every child who would ask.  He and his wife, Naomi, along with their daughter currently live in State College, PA.

Mr. Rob Bingaman

Mr. Rob Bingaman

Director of Finance

Rob Bingaman accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior at the age of nine while attending church camp; however, CHILD EVANGELISM FELLOWSHIP OF EASTERN PENNSYLVANIA, INC. has played an important role in his life since childhood.  His mother came to know the Lord when a neighbor invited her to a Good News Club.  When Rob was a child, his mother sent him to Good News Clubs, and eventually, she hosted 5-Day Clubs at their home.  Additionally, Rob’s wife, Beth, worked at State Headquarters for several years.

Rob retired from the Pennsylvania Public Utility Service after twenty years of service to the Commonwealth.  In his role as Compliance Office Manager, he was responsible for analyzing the financial statements submitted by motor carrier companies, who were applying for certification and rate increases.  He was also employed at a bank for four years and has an extensive knowledge on financial matters.

He realizes how vital it is to teach boys and girls about Jesus at an early age, especially in these times.  He looks forward to serving the Lord in this ministry as he deals with the various financial aspects of CHILD EVANGELISM FELLOWSHIP OF EASTERN PENNSYLVANIA, INC.

Mrs. Miriam Higley

Mrs. Miriam Higley

Media Outreach & Recruitment Coordinator

Miriam Higley has always felt called to work with children. She discovered CHILD EVANGELISM FELLOWSHIP OF EASTERN PENNSYLVANIA, INC. through her sister, who worked as a counselor at Good News Day Camp as a teen. Miriam was going to college at the time, but did not feel that she was in the place that God wanted her. In 2019, she transferred her education online in order to focus on serving on staff with CHILD EVANGELISM FELLOWSHIP OF WYOMING- SULLIVAN COUNTIES, INC.

Miriam graduated from Clarks Summit University in 2020 with an Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education and in 2021 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Christian Ministry and Bible.

In 2021, Miriam married her husband, Nathan, and moved to Lynchburg, Virginia where she now works remotely with CHILD EVANGELISM FELLOWSHIP OF EASTERN PENNSYLVANIA, INC.
