How are you spending your summer?

As relaxing as it may be to chill at 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 the Fargo/Moorhead area 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 one week training school 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, a real-life missionary story and a Bible verse as well as leading songs, games and a fun review time.

After this training, you will return to the Fargo/Moorhead area and teach 5 Day Clubs or counsel at Camp Good News. The 5 Day Clubs take place out in the community with predominantly unsaved kids who don’t 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.   Camp Good News happens at two local churches and each week features a different theme such as basketball or arts & crafts (as a counselor, you do not need to know anything about theme for the week; you job will be take care and counsel children).   CYIA’ers are paid after completing support raising letters.   To get an idea of how a summer works, see our 2017 schedule, click below:
