Held at Camp Christian. There are 3 options of dates for families to choose from for the CYF Conferences. It does not matter where you live or what Church you attend. You may register for whichever one fits best into your summer schedule. The week options for CYF Conference are:
(All CYF Conferences will be assigned names by their Conference this summer.)
CYF (Christian Youth Fellowship) Conference supports those who have finished grades 9-12. This camp seeks to give youth what they need spiritually in later life. Each day begins with an opportunity for individual devotion and reflection we call “Morning Watch” CYF Conference offers two different Bible Studies each day. This year we will study The Holy Spirit and material we call “Power and Prejudice.” This time of young adult life can be confusing and this material gives youth the markers they need to see who it is God is calling them to be. The afternoon are devoted the different “Committees” that work during the week to make it special. Some committees are Choir, Outreach (DIG), Worship (Vespers) or Consecration, as well as Talent Show, Banquet, etc. Each evening there is a worship service (Vespers) after supper that is created and led by the High Schoolers themselves. The end of the week is capped by a Consecration Service. This service too is created by and led by High School Youth. However, it does include an opportunity for the youth to make a confession of faith. Local Congregations are notified when this happens to they can follow up with baptism or confirmation. These DO NOT happen during camp as we believe this is most appropriate within the community where their faith is being lived out day to day. Here too, all campers are invited to participate in the Lord’s Supper. In addition, there is a special time at the end of Consecration on Saturday morning, where youth who feel God is calling them into full time Christian Ministry to step forward and be prayed for by the whole community. We realize many of these youth are still working to discover just where God is calling them, but want to begin helping them think about the call to ministry.
