Prison Ministry // There is a vicious cycle in America. While none of the incarcerated men and women in our jails intended to wind up in prison, they are there nonetheless. What's worse is the fact that their children are now at higher risk of becoming inmates themselves.

Christian Youth In Action - Summer Missions Program

Through local summer missions, such as 5-Day Clubs, CYIA participants get hands-on training in a variety of areas. More importantly, however, these youth get hands-on experience in harvesting the fields for God in East Texas.

As a youth minister, pastor, or parent, you're fully aware that God can use people of all ages to evangelize and disciple. This summer, don't let the potential of your youth be wasted. Your kids can be the ones who bring the community together through summer missions. The East Texas area has vast opportunities for CYIA members to witness to children; change lives; save souls; grow in strength, confidence, and faith; and develop valuable teamwork skills. Don't let those opportunities pass them by.

5-Day Clubs

One summer mission program Christian Youth In Action participants take part in is 5-Day Clubs. These free Bible clubs are sponsored by Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) and can be conducted by CEF-trained youth. Local boys and girls between the ages of 5 to 12 are invited to attend the 5-Day Clubs (regardless of religious background).

For one hour each day, on 5 consecutive days, kids who attend 5-Day Clubs participate in stimulating Bible lessons, activities, exhilarating stories of missionaries in faraway places, upbeat songs, scripture memory, and opportunities to meet Jesus as their Savior and Lord. Specific child protection steps are taken to ensure the safety of every child and the trustworthiness of the youth and adult leaders.

This is a wonderful way to break up the summer for kids while giving them a safe, productive environment to learn and flourish. And, in the middle of all the fun, these children will hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ and be given an opportunity to receive Jesus as their personal Savior. However, CYIA members will benefit as much, if not more, than the kids who attend!

5-Day Clubs give CYIA participants a chance to involve themselves in summer missions as never before. Your youth will experience the excitement of receiving training in a new area, the thrill of watching focused teamwork produce a positive result, and the joy of telling people about Jesus and leading them to Christ. CYIA summer missions are experiences your youth won't soon forget and will want to repeat year after year!
