How are you spending your summer? As relaxing as it may be to chill at the pool or hang out with friends, what if you chose instead to make an eternal impact in the lives of kids right where you live?!
High school and college students from around Kansas are coming together to reach the boys and girls of your community – and YOU can be a part of this team!
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 children 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.
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!
June of 2012 was my first year of CYIA. I thought I was just going there to learn to teach clubs and then come home; but God had a much bigger idea in mind, and my life has never been the same since.
Through CYIA, God has developed in me a love and a gift for teaching children. Not just in 5-Day Clubs, but also in Good News Club, Sunday School, and as a counselor at Camp Good News. Every one of these is an amazing chance to bring children to God, and to bring me closer to Him.
CYIA has also given me wonderful friendships with teens who have the same Godly mindset. Before CYIA, I didn’t really have any friends with a heart for God and missions. Now I have a wonderful friends to serve God with.
But most of all, CYIA has impacted my relationship with God. I’ve become so much closer to God as He works His amazing plan for me; because it’s not really CYIA that has impacted my life, it’s God doing His will for me through CYIA. Nor is this story about me, it’s God’s story through me. And I look forward to the next chapter.
