cyia-500x303CYIA – Christian Youth in Action

What spells fun to a teenager? Swimming….camping…hanging out with friends? How about impacting kids for eternity!

Teens are changed forever by God, as they become involved in the Christian Youth in Action program.

CEF trains young people to lead high-energy games and songs, teach exciting Bible and missions stories and introduce kids to the one who loves them most – Jesus Christ!

This training prepares young people to become active members in the Body of Christ, serving their church through children’s ministry. They are equipped to teach in 5-Day Club, Vacation Bible School, Sunday school or any outreach to kids. They learn to share a clear and simple Gospel message with children, their peers and adults!
