Why Christian Youth In action?
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 to two 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 5-Day Club® for kids. After this training, you will return to your local community and teach 5-Day Club®s at various community locations with a team of other young people. You will be able to take the light of the Gospel to them in their apartment complexes, day care centers, neighborhoods, schools and other community locations.
HOW DO YOU START?
Recruiting for CYIA™ begins in the spring. The program is open to teens ages 13-19 who are interested in serving the Lord alongside a team of like minded students from your area. You can begin the application process by contacting the local office. The process includes a submitted application and interview, that will take place with one or more of our staff members at the local office. The cost to participate in the program is usually around $400, which covers the cost of training, materials, and expenses. The money can be provided outright, or the student can raise the funds. The student is obligated to attend a week of training in early June, as well as serve at least two weeks of the summer.

Latest News about Summer Missions
Would you have thought that one volunteer could mobilize an entire church to take on new summer missions in their community in partnership with CEF® of Central Alabama? Well that is exactly the kind of work God has done in Eclectic Alabama!
The fundraiser was a great event, filled with fellowship and fun. However, there is still a financial need to cover summer expenses in the amount of $800. If you would like to give, you can mail donations to PO Box 240704 Montgomery AL 36124 or utilize the Donate button located on our Facebook page.
Sunday afternoon on June 10, 2018, teens and staff of Child Evangelism Fellowship® of Alabama arrived at Coosa Outdoor Worship Spot for a week of Annual Christian Youth in Action® Training. With the smell of summer woods (and zero cell service) in the air, they set their minds to the task at hand: preparing for a summer of service as ambassadors of Christ to boys and girls.
Starting Sunday, June 10th, teens form all over the state of Alabama will come together for a week of training, team building, and encouragement as part of their commitment to serve with Christian Youth In Action® and Summer Missions.
The sun shining, bees buzzing, and flowers beginning to bloom can only mean one thing: CEF® Summer Ministry is right around the corner. Each summer CEF of Central Alabama trains teenagers and partnering churches to go into their communities and share the Gospel with boys and girls.
As the weather warms, we are setting our sights on summer. To begin raising funds for summer ministry, we are hosting our second annual Clay Shoot. Join us for this day of fellowship, fun, and food, while also partnering with the Gospel and impacting the lives of teens and children this summer.
