Why partner with summer missions?
While it is true that God is using CEF® to reach many children with the Gospel during the summer months, we are seeking churches who are interested in being part of an ongoing effort to see those children consistently discipled and plugged into a local church body, in a way that roots the child in the teaching of God's Word and the fellowship of His people. This lasting relationship with the local church can dramatically increase the impact had on the child, the family, and the community. CEF® offers meaningful training, quality materials, assistance with recruitment and networking, as well as legal benefits such as liability insurance and background checks for all volunteers.
What does it look like?
The partnership fee of $150 covers the cost of the background checks and training for all volunteers, as well as a kit of materials for the team to share. The church can provide a list of locations where you would like to host a 5-Day Club, or CEF® can help pinpoint key locations in your community, many times building on established relationships with places such as YMCAs, day cares, etc. During your week(s) of ministry you are also partnered with at least one Christian Youth In Action® summer missionary who will serve as the liaison between your church and CEF®, as well as assist in the main teaching for the 5-Day Club®s.
