CYIA® 2022

What is CYIA?

In simplicity, Christian Youth in Action (CYIA) is a ministry for teens!     

Child Evangelism Fellowship® trains teens to put on high octane VBSs.

Teams of teens then travel around Montana during the summer months putting on these clubs with local churches.

Summer Ministry

June 27th – August 12th, 2022

We offer churches 6 different weeks of VBS ministry from June 26th-August 12th.  We do not work the 4th of July week.

We require the teens to work a minimum of (4) four weeks during this time frame. We very much encourage them to do more if they can. Last summer we turned down 7 churches because we didn’t have enough teens.

Face Painting

August 12th-20th

We will be at the Montana State fair in Billings from August 12th-August 20th. We share the gospel as we paint faces. This would be an extra time of serving.

Training Information

CYIA training takes place at Heritage Christian School in Bozeman, MT. Training will be June 12th– June 25th, 2022.

Students stay at the school during the duration of the training. Class rooms become the dorms. Teens bring their own bedding!

First week is mainly academic as we train the CYIAers to put on the VBS.

Second week we have them put on VBSs and evaluate, turning the head knowledge into ministry to the children!

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

Cost: $350 for the two week training. This includes the teens summer ministry kits, t-shirts worn during the summer, room and board for the two weeks.
