"I'm always amazed by the way God uses summer missions to not only transform the lives of children, but to radically change the lives of the young people who serve with us as well. Having served 3 years as a CYIA myself, and now mentoring and discipling our CYIA, it is such a blessing to see God take His willing servants and to use them powerfully to advance His kingdom." - Rachel McGuire, Volunteer

Christian Youth in Action are young men and women of God who are passionate about sharing Jesus with Ontario's children.  It all begins with two weeks of training (at the end of the school year) followed by direct ministry to children in a region of Ontario for up to six weeks in a variety of Vacation Bible School, 5-Day Club and camp settings.

These young people then have the opportunity to serve with us in various capacities throughout the school year.

Who Can Apply?

Any young person fifteen years of age or older with a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is invited to apply.

Summer Training Only Application

What Does it Cost?

The cost for the two weeks of training is $50 dollars deposit and $475 for the two weeks. That covers room and board and all course materials.  You can serve up to five weeks in the field at no additional cost!

All donations to support summer missionaries are tax receiptable.

If you have any questions please contact our Youth Ministries Director Heather Penner, she'll be happy to help you anyway she can.
