Tools, education, and resources YOU need to meet and empower today’s teens.

Effective, innovative youth ministry is essential for engaging with today’s youth. We are dedicated to providing YOU the tools and training you need to reach them.




The CYMT 2022 GivingTuesday campaign will support under-resourced communities who can’t afford the graduate residency program.  Our GivingTuesday goal is to raise $15,000 as a matching grant for one under-resourced ministry for one year.  This partnership will make youth ministry happen in those communities Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday!

We can only achieve this goal with your help.  Please invite others to give to our GivingTuesday campaign.  We can’t wait to celebrate the success of this campaign with you! If you’d rather not wait for GivingTuesday, we have provided a handy “Donate Now” button just for you!




Today’s teens need leaders and spiritual tools that help them in authentic faith-formation.


Churches and local ministries are not meeting the spiritual needs of today’s teens. Whether it be from lack of understanding, education, & resources, or from unhealthy and dated forms of engagement – teens are left to navigate a challenging world where they feel lost and unheard, or without faith at all.

We simply cannot engage with youth without practical, theological, innovative tools and training.

Communities without equipped leaders risk leaving youth without relevant faith spaces to grow and mature in their faith. 

Leaders themselves risk burning out quickly in their faith calling because of lack of training, coaching and guidance.

And entire communities risk the future generation not having the emotional and spiritual support they need for navigating the world around them.

At CYMT, we equip leaders to minister, innovate, and engage with youth so that they may experience the love and grace of Jesus Christ leading to identity and purpose.
