CEF’s Christian Youth In Action® (CYIA™) program is 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 five-day 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
