Christian Youth In Action® (CYIA)

Have a rewarding summer. Serve with us through Christian Youth in Action!

CYIA is for Christian teens (ages 14-18). Jr.CYIA is training for ages 12-13.

Christian Youth In Action® (CYIA™} is a program designed to train you and a team of other young people in effective and engaging ways to teach children about God. You will attend a two week training school where you will learn to present the Gospel clearly on a child’s level,counsel a child for salvation and lead a dynamic club ministry for kids. Components of this club include teaching a Bible lesson, a real-life missionary story and a Bible verse as well as leading songs,games and a fun review time. After training, you will teach at least 2 weeks of 5-Day Clubs at various locations in your local community with teams of other young people. These clubs take place with predominantly unsaved boys and girls who don’t regularly attend church. It is a great opportunity to take the light of the Gospel to them in their apartment  complexes, day care centers, neighborhoods, schools, and other community locations. Go to!

If you have a heart for ministry and want to team up with other young people to reach the children in your community as a summer missionary, CYIA is for you!
