There is always a spiritual emphasis in the CYIA ministry to challenge the teens to grow in their relationship with the Lord!

Summer Ministry

June 29th through August 16th, 2020

  • Teens are required to serve for four (4)  weeks during the summer ministry period. ( Can do more if they would like
  • Teens are assigned to teams that travel throughout Montana to put on the 5 Day Clubs.
  • Teens can be asked to travel anywhere in the State of Montana.
  • Teens can be asked to serve other weeks if possible due to when churches may schedule clubs 

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What if I can’t afford the training?

Our experience has shown that God provides for the teens to do this ministry. Many churches help provide funds for the teens. People get excited about teens serving and are more than willing to help! CEF of Montana also has some limited funds for scholarships.

  • Will there be any other costs for my teen during the summer?

CEF of Montana and churches cover the travel costs and meals throughout the summer. Teens should have some spending money for snacks or souvenirs. If your teen attends the State Fair in Billings they would need funds for riding rides, etc.

  • Will I have to drive my teen all over the state?

CEF of Montana works with parents to keep travel for families to a minimum. We try to do most of the driving for you. We would set up a meeting place near by and then drive students the rest of the way. We try to schedule them with 5 Day Clubs that are closer to your home. We also have teens stay at the State Directors home over weekends to help cut down on travel for parents. We usually travel to churches on Sunday evening and return either Friday evening or Saturday morning depending on the location. We do our very best to keep your travel at a minimum!

  • Who are the drivers for CEF?

All drivers will either be CEF Staff, State Board members, CEF Volunteers or CEF Interns for the summer. (18 as a minimum)

  • How does CEF work to protect my son or daughter?

1) All CEF staff, Interns and CEF volunteers have had a criminal background check and references questioned.

2) We have a three person rule. All activities require a minimum of three people involved so that no adult is alone with a teen. Parents are called and worked with if this situation arises do to circumstances we can’t control.

3) Anyone 18 and over who will have a connection with the teens (housing hosts, their families and volunteers participating in the 5 Day Clubs) will also have background checks and references questioned.

4) We have curfews and strict rules on where guys and girls can be.

5) We work to have guys and girls stay in separate host homes when possible.

How does CEF fund this ministry?

We believe God provides funding for His ministry. We trust God’s people and churches to give to our ministry as He leads them.

What time frame is needed to train those who are involved with VBS?

We are very flexible with working with the church to make it happen. All training is done for free.

A normal team would usually consist of an adult leader and 2-4 teens.

Serving Church

Back to School

 

 

 

 

 

We simply want to be a tool the local church uses to reach their community!

School Year Ministry!

What is a Good News Club®?

gnclogocopy

A club that meets with groups of children in schools, homes, community centers, churches, apartment complexes, just about anywhere the children can easily and safely meet with their parent’s permission. 

What’s in a Good News Club?

This action-packed time includes Bible lessons, songs, Scripture memory, a missions story and review games or other activities focused on the lesson’s theme.

Each club includes a clear presentation of the Gospel and an opportunity for children to trust the Lord Jesus as Savior. Every club also includes strong discipleship   training to build character and strengthen moral and spiritual growth.

Ministry of the Church!

Good News Club® (GNC) will be a ministry of the local church. CEF will train, equip and provide key aspects to this club for the church but it will simply be a ministry outreach of the local church!

Quick overview of the Church’s role

  • Carry out the actual ministry to the kids
  • A commitment of 14-26 weeks during the school year
  • Responsible for the workers for the club (7-10 folks)
  • Finances to facilitate the GNC
  • Work within the basics needed by CEF for a club to be called a GNC

Quick overview of CEF’s role

  • To help secure a school facility if GNC is to be in a school
  • Completing CEF’s Child Protection Policy for all workers including background checks
  • Provide the 8-hour initial training and follow up training
  • Order CEF curriculum and resources to be used in the GNC by the church

A CEF Ministry coordinator will be assigned to the church for the GNC. They will facilitate the partnership and will continue to communicate with the church in regards to the GNC.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much will this cost the church?

Good News Clubs do require our curriculum to be used. Initial resource pack for the year is about $90-$100. Each 6-week curriculum will be about  $40-$50. Snacks, prizes, any rental fees and etc. are taken care of by the church as well.

What is the required 8 hour training?

It is training on how to minister to children and how to use our GNC curriculum. Usually is done on a Saturday.

What does the 7-10 team members look like?

This team is made up of a leader/coordinator for the club. Those who can teach, lead music, do games, take care of administrative aspects and general helpers. The church is responsible for providing these workers.

Why does CEF require certain aspects to the GNC?

We are a nationally recognized program that takes place in public schools. This helps greatly to get into schools. We also provide the liability insurance for the clubs. This insurance requires us to have basic requirements to cover a GNC.

Is the church responsible for doing background checks?

CEF of Montana provides the background checks for all those who will participate in the club with the children.

Acts 4:12 Fun!

This last summer was a lot of fun, and it all started off with CYIA training. The training was a lot of hard work and a lot of fun as well.

So, in order to show you how much fun we had, I figured we could show you some of the fun music we used for our clubs and the video we made to help us learn the actions for one of the songs.
