Visit our Ministries page for more information about how you can be a summer missionary too.
People don't know what they want until they see it.
Can you envision one hundred teens setting up high energy Vacation Bible School type 5 Day Clubs all over our Idaho Top Ten Counties in city parks, in community places, school yards, churches, etc and sharing the Gospel with children during the summer?
Can you envision the children playing games, using colorful parachutes, balls flying high in the air, kids chasing each other snatching tails, etc.? Then storming in for cool drinks and snacks, sitting in the open air, singing uplifting songs, learning memory verses, hearing the Gospel message through Bible stories, and playing games to review what they had learned that day.
If you can see this in your mind, you have a pretty good picture of what Christian Youth in Action is all about. CYIA is a 2 week long training for youth who have a heart to serve God and share the Gospel in towns all over. The youth are the missionaries. They play the games, teach the lessons, direct the songs, and counsel children to assure they understand what it means to believe in Jesus.
Are you a young person (or older person) who wants to learn how to minister to children? Or do you know a young person who could benefit from the training and has a heart to follow the great commission? Then check out CYIA!

CEF of Idaho - State Director: Bob Smith
Seeking New Director for our Chapter
Job opening: Local Director for Child Evangelism Fellowship of Idaho Top Ten Counties Chapter (CEF TTCC)
Beginning: To be determined by applicant and committee.
Contact: Please send inquiries and resumes to one of the options below:
Salary: Current Director receives a monthly stipend. New Director(s) will need to raise his/her support. There is some support from the chapter. It is recommended that one member of a husband/wife team supplement family income with employment beyond the ministry until salary level support has been achieved.
Our chapter covers the top ten counties in Idaho, a large geographical area encompassing central Idaho and the Panhandle. This runs from the town of New Meadows to the Canadian border. Economy is mainly agricultural, logging and tourism. Recreational opportunities abound with hunting, fishing, hiking, white water rafting, other water activities, and many snow sports. Most communities are small and rural with the larger cities being Lewiston, Moscow, Coeur d’Alene, and Sandpoint. Spokane, WA is 25 miles from Coeur d'Alene with a major airport, large shopping centers, and live theater and musical events.
Our local director serves as the face of our chapter and ultimately a developer of volunteers, other leaders, and ministries. This person should be able to establish working relationships with a variety of people and ministries.
A husband/wife team is preferred to take the lead in speaking with churches and pastors but we are searching for that one person God has called to this area and to take this chapter to its next level. The ability to marshal resources in a challenging environment and a sense of humor is always a plus.
