What is Christian Youth in Action®?

Christian Youth In Action (CYIA™) is a summer missions program developed and run by Child Evangelism Fellowship® (CEF®) staff and volunteers.

Students learn how to effectively share the Gospel message with boys and girls ages 5-12 at the CYIA Training School and teach 5-Day Clubs® in their local areas.

CYIA gives students many opportunities to witness the miracle of children accepting Christ as their Savior when they hear the Good News.
