Every summer CEFOntario trains and sends dozens of passionate Christian youth on local and provincial missions across Ontario to reach boys and girls with the gospel.

Christian Youth in Action (CYIA)

is our summer missions program for young men and women of God passionate about sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with Ontario's children. The program begins with two weeks of Summer Ministry Training at our headquarters facility, followed by up to six weeks of teaching Vacation Bible Schools or 5-Day Clubs for children in a region of Ontario. They could also be assigned to teach at our summer Camp Good News with disadvantaged children.

CYIA Alumni then have the opportunity to serve with us in various capacities throughout the school year.


What's God's purpose for you this summer?

Are you looking for a way to serve God and make this summer count even in midst of a pandemic? We have an opportunity for you to reach children across Canada with the gospel right from your home. This could be the PLAN A God has for you this summer!

SUMMER 2020 


In response to the ongoing COVID19 quarantine measures, CEF chapters across Canada have decided to develop a national joint-ministry for our summer programs by bringing our 5-Day Clubs ONLINE through Zoom. We will be bringing youth missionaries from around the country to host Inventor Fuzzywig themed live one-hour virtual clubs filled with games, songs, and Gospel-infused bible stories for children at home who need to hear the gospel and hope of Jesus Christ during the pandemic. 


Youth missionaries will be doing a two-week online conference training from June 29th - July 10th (Mon-Fri) then hosting clubs for up to 5 weeks from July 13th - August 14th. The total cost for training and missions would be $99. However, should finances be a challenge, please contact us. Missionaries will also be able to raise financial support.
