Would you like to do something useful with your summer? 



Christian Youth in Action (CYIA) is a short-term, summer ministry dedicated to the training and development of committed Christians (ages 12 and up) who want to be equipped to reach children for Christ.  By completing the training program, you will be certified by Child Evangelism Fellowship to teach children, witness to those you babysit, and minister effectively to your neighbors, friends and relatives.

What is involved in the training?ma class-2018

You will receive individual and group instruction from some of the most exciting, enthusiastic, and godly leaders of Child Evangelism Fellowship.  These instructors will equip you to teach and counsel boys and girls to receive Christ.

What is the focus of the training?

Your training will be focused on preparing you to teach 5-Day Clubs.  These are neighborhood Bible clubs for children held in backyards, 90 minutes a day for five consecutive days throughout the summer.  Our summer missionaries (YOU) teach exciting Bible lessons and true-to-life missionary stories.  These clubs also include: fun games, singing, sharing, memorizing verses and more fun ways to share the Gospel.

As a result of summer missionaries teaching God's Word:

- Boys and Girls are reached with the Gospel of Christ

- Children's lives are changed

- You learn teamwork, self-confidence, responsibility, endurance and communication skills

- Your faith and vision will grow deeper

- You will build new friendships that can last a lifetime.

- You will build experience for service in your own church, school or vocation.
