The deadline to register for CYIA™ 2021 is May 15, 2021!
Has your teen ever wanted to go on a missions trip but cost, logistic issues, or lack of availability made it impossible? Do you desire to give your junior high or high-school aged child an unforgettable summer experience that will both challenge and strengthen them to grow in Christ and cultivate friendships, habits, and experiences of eternal value? Look no further than CEF’s Christian Youth In Action® (CYIA™) program!
At CYIA™, young people ages 12 and up are trained to serve in their local CEF® chapter in 5-Day Clubs and other gospel outreaches to children over the summer.
Teens ages 14 and up are trained as Summer Missionaries (SMs), who learn firsthand the nuts and bolts of the true missions experience, including intensive training, gaining real-life field experience with teaching and counselling children, and participating in basic support raising.
Preteens (ages 12-13), are trained as Missionary Assistants (MAs), who help share club responsibilities such as teaching memory verses, leading songs, and aiding the Summer Missionary team in other club details. Missionary Assistants are considered volunteers and are not involved in support raising.
In this practical, disciplined, safe, and rewarding atmosphere, Christian young people are challenged and strengthened in their walk with Christ as they cultivate Godly relationships and gain eternal value from their commitment to serve. Invest in summer of the lifetime with Christian Youth In Action®!
CYIA 2021 will be held on the campus of Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, IN, from June 12-17, 2021.
Local pre-training (mandatory for all new and returning Summer Missionaries and Missionary Assistants) will be held at the local Evansville Office June 7-10, 2021.
