3 Day VBS Ministry
A typical ministry week would consist of leaving on Sunday and returning Wednesday evening. Depending on the location of the VBS, you might return home on Thursday morning because of travel distance.
Summer VBS Ministry
We offer churches 6 different weeks of VBS ministry from June 25-August 11. We do not put on VBS’s during the week of the 4th of July.
One part of our summer ministry is sharing the gospel at the Montana State Fair through face painting. This year the fair will be August 11-20, 2022. This is an optional week for you to serve.
CYIA training takes place at Heritage Christian School in Bozeman, MT.
Students stay at the school during the duration of the training. Class rooms become the dorms. Teens bring their own bedding!
First week is mainly academic as we train the CYIAers to put on the VBS.
During the second week, you will be asked to put on a VBS for a local church. This is where what you’ve learned will be put into practice.
This is where what you’ve learned will be put into practice.
You can also expect to be challenged to grow in your relationship with Jesus.
