Child Evangelism Fellowship will hold CYIA Training on NBBI campus from Sunday, July 1 to Friday, July 6, 2012.
For the past nine years I have had the blessing of working with Child Evangelism Fellowship in Northern Maine. God has given us a tremendous responsibility to reach the lost and it is our passion in CEF to reach children with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Each year hundreds of boys and girls are presented with the message of salvation through various CEF sponsored ministries.
As a child, I was exposed to many CEF ministries. As I reached my teen and young adult years, I had the privilege to serve in various ministries such as Awana, Word of Life Clubs and others. One thing that I found invaluable was the training that I had received during my early teen years. For two summers, I attended a training camp called “Christian Youth In Action.” I was challenged to have a heart for the lost, to develop my relationship with the Lord, and to have confidence when sharing my faith.
One of our greatest goals is not only to share the gospel, but to equip others with the training and tools to do the same. Christ Himself said that He came for the lost and the need is as great today as it was then. CEF of Canada and CEF of Maine have partnered to bring Christian Youth In Action training to New Brunswick. NBBI has graciously agreed to host the CYIA training on their campus. CYIA is an intense training program that provides youth with the How-to’s of giving a clear and thorough presentation of the gospel while also providing opportunities to gain hands on experience.
The program is designed for ages 15 and up and will be held from Sunday, July 1 to Friday, July 6, 2012.
