Christ for Native Youth
Is a growing network of people: youth leaders, volunteers, students, pastors, businessmen, auto mechanics, etc., who care about Native Youth, and are passionate about seeing them walk with their Creator- Jesus Christ.
Our Mission is to Build a community to transform Native American Youth into their Full Potential in Christ!
Here’s what we do…
- Identify those who are (or should be) serving mid and high school students.
- Pray with and for youth leaders and their ministry.
- Equip youth leaders with resources.
- Link youth leaders to a network to sustain their ministry.
Mission Trips- we have offered practical training and mobilization for Native youth and leaders to share their story with many other ethnic groups. After preparations and orientation are held, these teams have visited many Native communities in the Arizona/New Mexico area, and have traveled to the Northwest Territories Canada, California, Washington, Ohio, West Virginia, and since 1999, into 5 states in Mexico.
Trail of Hope- an international gathering of students and leaders to sustain an effective and empowered life in Christ. Trail of Hope is a unique training conference, helpings to keep students and leaders encouraged, connected with each other, and sending young people to the world as unique servants of Jesus Christ.
The Native Youth Ministry Network- links youth workers for encouragement and spiritual growth, and shares resources for more effective youth ministry. As a result, every young person can be exposed to the gospel, discipled in a local church, discipled into a biblical lifestyle, established and equipped to reach the world.
Parents’ Conferences– Help parents understand their students and learn biblical principles about raising their children.
Wisdom Keepers YL Training Conference- truly the heart of CNY, an annual event to share the best practices and wisdom of living intentionally together, to make disciples who make disciples.
BREATHE is an annual youth leaders retreat to pray with, refresh and strengthen our network.
