CEF of New York City joins with CEF of North Jersey's CYIA (Christian Youth in Action) for training.
CYIA Training School is open to students ages 12+. Students will be asked to complete some reading and Scripture memory assignments before school begins.
Dates: Sunday, July 2 - Saturday, July 8, 2023. CYIA training is residential. Students are expected to attend all class sessions and activities. Applications and a non-refundable $50 deposit (which will be applied to the school fee) are due by April 15, 2023.
Pricing: $350, includes classes, activities, meals and dormitory style housing. A $50 deposit (applied to registration cost) is due with your application. Some scholarships may be available; contact your local director for more information.
Materials: Training at the school will center around CEF’s 2023 Summer Ministry Kit, featuring the Jesus: My Savior and Friend Bible lesson series. Your ministry kit will include all materials needed to teach 5-Day Club in a practical tote bag. This kit is available from the local CEF chapter. Cost: $97.00 (NYC students who teach at least one week of 5-Day Club will be provided with free materials.)
Schedule: The daily routine at Training School will consist of group devotions, prayer time, instructional and practice time as well as children’s ministry. We’ll have free time and planned recreational activities. The days are full, but you’ll have time for building relationships, recreation, and enjoying the beautiful Jersey shore.
Facility: CYIA Training School will be held at Harvey Cedars Bible Conference on Long Beach Island. Training School dates coincide with Family Week at the conference center. Each evening the CEF team will minister to the children attending the conference through a 5-Day Club. Housing is dormitory style. Students will be able to enjoy many of the center’s amenities during recreation time.
