Who We Are
Christian Educational Ministries (CEM) was founded in November 1995 by Ron (1934–2016) and Allie Dart (1933–2017) as an independent, nondenominational ministry to serve the public and individual Christians of every kind through the ministry of Ronald L. Dart.
Mr. Dart, an ordained minister and evangelist, served God through hundreds of sermons, broadcasts, Bible studies, and books. His messages and printed material bring clarity and simplicity to topics that could otherwise be cumbersome.
CEM promotes Ron Dart’s radio ministry, Born to Win, which is heard from coast to coast. His clear, conversational, and inviting style can be heard the world over. The Born to Win website—borntowin.net—features more than 1,000 of Mr. Dart’s timeless sermons and studies at any one time.
Our mission is:
- First, to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world (Matthew 28).
- Second, to teach the disciples of Jesus Christ so that they may be
proficient and equipped for every good work(2 Timothy 3:17).
- Third, to teach and train this generation and the next with studies and programs focused on youth through the Darts’ special passion: Youth Educational Adventures (YEA) (Deuteronomy 11:19, Proverbs 22:6).
- Fourth, to bring God’s people closer together, through cooperative efforts wherever they may be (2 Corinthians 5:18).
To this end, we teach the Bible and its Truth, with a goal of helping people make their own lives work while they are a positive influence and blessing to those around them.
(Not counting our newsletter.)
Christian Educational Ministries was founded in November, 1995 as a service ministry with two major goals. First, in the hearts of all Christian people is the imperative to share the Gospel with the world, to evangelize, to make disciples for Jesus Christ. Second, it is our desire to teach those who are disciples of Jesus all that He commanded His disciples to do (Matthew 28:19-20). Paul expanded on this latter objective in his last letter to Timothy:
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be proficient and equipped for every good work.
To this end, we teach the Bible with a view to helping people make their own lives work while they are a positive influence and blessing to those around them.
Our primary mission is carried out through the Born to Win radio program, literature, essays both in print and on the Internet, and published books. We also make available sermon CDs and an Adult Bible Study Course in our CEM Bookstore. Another major effort is the education of youth. Youth Educational Adventures is an arm of CEM created to systematically educate children and young people in God’s way with a curriculum of lessons spanning 17 years of a child’s life, beginning with age three to 20. CEM is here to serve the public, individual Christians of every stripe, and community based churches in every tradition. We are an independent, non-denominational ministry. Our Confession of Faith is broadly stated and not intended to be exclusionary.
