Late.Miss. P. Vijaya Charles
We recognize the creeds commonly called the Apostle Creed and the Nicene Creed as the Historical standards of the Church’s Confession of Biblical faith.
In the year 1966 Evangelical Fellowship of India has decided to form Regional Christian Evangelical Fellowships for each state and thus Telugu Christian Evangelical Fellowship of India has taken birth with Miss. Lova Bush as Secretary
She said “If we are willing to serve God, it is wonderful how He prepares us and leads us into the work He wants us to do. Even before He tells us what the work is, He begins to prepare us.”
Miss Bush was grown up in a small town of US. During her first year of her ministry in India, she spent most of her time to learn Telugu. During 1966 the EFI conference has appointed Miss Bush as First Secretary of Telugu CEEFI.
In 1969 Miss Vijaya Charles has joined as first Indian Telugu CEEFI Secretary. She has been marked as the Pioneer. She made a survey of Sunday School Work in the then A.P. In the year 1968 Miss. Vijaya Charles who had been working as teacher had resigned her government job and joined Telugu CEEFI and by then she had already been involved in the translation work that was taken up by Miss Bush.
The TCEEFI Promotion work of TCEEFI has entered all the 23 districts of the then A.P. By the grace of God by the year 1979 the 15 years course has been printed in TELUGU by Mr. Roy German who was TCEEFI Publisher and Treasurer. And Mr. Mithra Satuluri became Treasurer in 1981. Miss E J Harding, Miss BJC Tilsley, Mrs. Sylvia Job and many more tens of missionaries helped in translation work.
Telugu CEEFI has been in rented quarters till May 1990. TCEEFI shifted from Baptist Compound Secunderabad to a private house in Krishna Nagar, Secunderabad and from there to Bpatist Church compound, Narayanaguda, Hyderabad. The prayer of years for permanent quarters has been answered and the Lord miraculously provided the present quarters, Telugu CEEFI is the honoured and permanent guest of KVS Trust.
We have celebrated 25 years (1966-1991) Silver Jubilee. And in 2005-2006 we also celebrated Ruby Jubilee. Now we are celebrating Telugu CEEFI Golden Jubilee in the year 2016.
Telugu Christian Education Evangelical Fellowship of India was not registered and has no face of its own. Under these circumstances the existing Executive Committee felt the expedient and immediate need and necessity of forming an Independent organization as Telugu Christian Evangelical Education Foundation of India (TELUGU CEEFI) to acquire independent legal status and to obtain PAN Card which is necessary for all financial transactions. But for technical reasons Telugu CEEFI (Telugu Christian Evangelical Education Foundation of India) is registered as Telugu Christian Evangelical Education Foundation Info with Regd. No.: 114/2016 under the Andhra Pradesh Societies Registration Act. 2001.
To impact the Telugu speaking community with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ by imparting systematic Christian Education (Bible Based) to children through Sunday School Teachers Trainings and make available literature and allied material.
