Invest in Youth!

An investment in youth is an investment in the Kingdom!

Young people need support now more than ever.

Your donations allow CYMT to continue our hands-on work to develop and equip leaders who invest in young people’s lives so they know the love and grace of Jesus Christ. Your investment works to transform the lives of this generation.

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.

Stories of Impact

Randy Fenimore, CYMT Board Member

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.
