Christian Youth in Action®

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 one to 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 this training, you will return to your local community and teach clubs at various locations with a team of other young people. These clubs take place out in the community with predominantly unsaved kids who don’t regularly attend church. You will be able to take the light of the Gospel to them in their apartment complexes, daycare centers, neighborhoods, schools, and other community locations. Depending on the state you serve in, you will teach clubs from one to five weeks during the summer.

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

Just think, this summer you can:

  • Reach boys and girls with the Gospel
  • See your faith and vision grow deeper
  • Build new friendships that will last a
  • lifetime
  • Grow in communication, teamwork,
  • endurance, responsibility, and self-
  • confidence
  • Gain experience for ministry in your own
  • local church, school or vocation

Now, doesn’t THAT sound like a rewarding summer?!
