CYF Commission Report 2012

At both the spring and fall meetings of the Christian Youth Fellowship (CYF) Commission, we reviewed several programs, one of which was the Mid Winter Retreats. The Commission discussed innovative approaches designed to deepen the spirituality of our youth while allowing them to participate in and celebrate the beautiful winter season at Camp Christian. The Ice Camp Retreats… which will replace the four Mid-Winter Retreats in 2014, will draw on the creative leadership and organizational skills of our State Officers. Conferees will choose one of the two planned at camp.   Plans continue to make the Ice Camps a reality.

 

New State Officers were elected at the spring meeting.  The 2012-13 State Officers are:  Natalie Bendel, President,  Joe Heidenescher - VP, Jimmy Allen, Secretary, and Jene'a Jennings, Delegate.  The General Youth Council representative is Natalie Bendel.  She will be involved in the planning of the youth activities for the General Assembly in Orlando, FL in July 2013.

 

In an effort to update our CYF curricula, dedicated ADs and  counselors worked to revise the 2012 curricula:"Piecing the Puzzle of Me"(…based on relationships, and what relationships mean as youth grow into young adults) and  "The Gospel of Luke"(…how do we take the gospel stories and translate them into our everyday lives?). CYF conferees reacted favorably to the newly revised curricula per their written evaluations.

During our spring Youth Council meeting, State and Conference Officers and Alternates along with District Officers decided, collectively, how DIG (Dividends in Growth) and SCOOP (Special Concerns Ohio Outreach Project) proceeds should be distributed. The DIG offering was $17,377.26, and the SCOOP offering was $3,382.74

 

 The following percentages were voted on and approved:

 

                             DIG Disbursements

25% Hocking Valley Parish 

20% Regional Youth Fund

20% youth scholarship fund

 5% Shalom Center, Chile

5%  Week of Compassion

5% Camp Christian Capital

5% Hiram Farms

5% global Ministries

10%  Cleveland Christian Home

 

SCOOP Disbursements

25% Hocking Valley Parish

10% St. Phillip's Christian Church

10% Pension Fund

10% Reconciliation

15% Pastoral Fund

25% Youth Scholarship Fund

5% Cleveland Christian Home

 

Camp Christian has created policies designed to ensure the safety of each camper (Anti-Bullying, Search and Seizure…) and to limit distractions (cell phone and dress code expectations…). These policies/ expectations were reviewed with regard to effectiveness and appear to enhance the camp experience for our youth. 

 

CYF Commission Chair, Mary Jo Bray will create a display table for 2012  Regional Assembly.  She will gather materials, and photos for all of the upcoming youth events.  Dick Woodward, Mark Hobson, and Ralph Wearstler will help also.

 

The youth in Ohio are an amazing group of young people, and it is our responsibility, as adults, to plant seeds of faith into their hearts.  Where and when that seed grows is known only to God.  We look forward to serving our youth well into the future.
