Christian Youth in Action (CYIA)

What is CYIA?

Christian Youth in Action exists to develop LEADERS by challenging students to GROW in their relationship with Jesus and to TRAIN AND EQUIP them to share the GOSPEL with children in their community.

LEADERS

CYIA is an intense training program. It’s designed for those who want to be developed into Christian leaders. The leadership skills developed at CYIA can be used in all of life.

Grow

Spiritual growth comes as a result of being challenged in your faith. CYIA students are stretched in a safe environment. They are able to explore their faith in a powerful way.

Train & Equip

The CYIA training is full of classes, coaching, small group discussions, practicing and passing practicums. By the end of the week, they will be equipped to share the Gospel in the context of a Summer Good News Club.

GOSPEL

CYIA begins and ends with the Gospel. Starting with the first day of classes, each track explores the Gospel in a different way. Every student will be involved in sharing the Gospel during their summer.

CYIA North Impact (CYIA MODIFIED TRAINING)

WANT TO STEP INTO SOMETHING DIFFERENT FOR THE ENTIRE SUMMER?

Child Evangelism Fellowship of Nebraska excited to announce CYIA North Impact, a dynamic training program for those eager to positively influence children’s lives with the Gospel in a summer camp setting. This initiative offers an immersive ministry experience spanning the entire summer, allowing participants to step away from their usual home surroundings. In this environment, both children and students are spiritually nurtured and challenged weekly, creating an ideal atmosphere for fostering spiritual development, while using their Christian Youth in Action training and their deepened understanding of the Gospel.

WHAT SETS CYIA NORTH IMPACT APART?

CYIA North Impact offers a unique blend of classes and practical application, with a special focus on real, hands-on Bible club experience during the training. Participants will have the invaluable opportunity to teach at a Summer Good News Club (also called a Summer VBS in their context) during their training week. This direct involvement ensures that every student gains the confidence and skills necessary to lead effectively.

POST-TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES:

Post-training, Camp Assurance has had a long relationship with CEF, hosting a series of Summer Good News clubs across northeast Nebraska. CYIA North Impact students are invited to lead these clubs the following two weeks, putting their newly acquired skills into action.
