Donate to the Center for Youth Ministry Training

Invest in effective ministry so youth have the opportunity to experience the grace and love of Jesus Christ in their churches, homes, and communities.


One of the most effective ways to impact youth is to equip and prepare youth ministers, leaders, churches and communities to reach them.

Your gift directly impacts…



The Kingdom

Your gift provides funds for developing modern resources for youth, parents, youth ministers, churches, nonprofits, and camps – all for the growth of the Kingdom of God.


Your gift directly impacts the lives of youth. CYMT programs and initiatives are all dedicated to providing training, education, and resources for the greater youth ministry community so that youth can experience the love of Jesus in their homes, schools, churches, and communities.

Communities of Faith

Your gift makes it possible for us to continue placing trained youth ministers in churches, camps, nonprofits, and campus ministries.

Youth Ministers

Your gift allows us to provide job placement, seminary training, and practical resources to those who have some of the most direct influence on the lives of young people. Youth ministers are given the tools to be able to build sustainable youth ministries and effectively live into their youth ministry calling.

Why Give to CYMT?


One of the reasons I serve on the board of the Center for Youth Ministry Training is my firm belief that faith in Christ is the most important resource we have to meet life’s challenges with patience and compassion. We have a blessed assurance that God’s loving guidance goes with us each day. Our world is facing some extremely difficult problems right now. CYMT’s impact on youth ministry is immeasurable as we provide an anchor for both youth ministers and youth as they navigate these turbulent waters. Our donors are critical partners, sharing in our mission to create lifechanging, transformational encounters with God for our young people, no matter what they are experiencing. Despite challenging times, CYMT is looking toward the future with great hope! Your partnership will lead the way and we are grateful for the investment you are making in the lives of young people as they grow in faith and follow Jesus Christ.
