This past summer, we had more than 20 teens participate in our 5-Day Club programs throughout Sarasota and Manatee Counties. We visited 7 different locations, taught more than 300 children, and saw 30 of them believe in Jesus Christ as their savior from sin...all because a group of teenagers was willing to sacrifice a portion of their summer in order to reach children with the Gospel. 


How are you spending your summer? As relaxing as it may be to chill by 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 your state 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 1 week training session in Orlando 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, scripture memorization, and a real-life missionary story 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 children who do not 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 children in your community, then CYIA is for you!

Just think, each 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, does THAT sound like a rewarding summer?
