Christian Youth In Action® (CYIA®)

CYIA in action

CYIA is a SUMMER missions program for teens ages 13-18 that is developed and run by CEF staff and volunteers. CYIA is a week-long training school, located in Oregon, where teens learn how to evangelize children through teaching Bible lessons, memory verses, songs and games. CYIA gives teens the opportunity to practice and apply what they learn during CYIA by serving in a 5-Day Club. Teens then return home and apply what they have learned in local community 5-Day Club outreaches in their hometown.
