ChildTel Ministries (previously known as Childrens Telephone Ministry) is a Christ centered, non-denominational, Christian ministry. Since 1977, the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ has been shared with boys and girls (and adults as well) throughout the world using recorded telephone messages, free Bible lessons in the mail and colorful tracts designed especially for children.

FAIR MINISTRY: Special telephones are taken to state and county fairs where boys and girls may listen to a short Gospel message and then sign up for free Bible lessons in the mail. They may also play the "Gospel Computer Quiz", push buttons on the "Little Kids Computer" or see special Gospel rope tricks. Hundreds of prizes are handed out each year for saying John 3:16 from memory, about half of which are memorized right at the fair. See Fair Photos Free Fair Ministry Equipment
SKETCHBOARD: Colorful Gospel presentations using a sketchboard and paints are used to share Christ with children in an open air environment in the inner city, as well as in churches, Christian schools, camps and other places. See Sketchboard Photo
