From the very beginning of Christ In Youth’s ministry in 1968, it has always operated as an international ministry for young people. Its first conferences were called International Youth Conferences, and over the past 50 years the organisation has led people to Christ in more than 50 countries.
CIY is thrilled to launch in Europe with our initial focus being led to work in Ireland. Our mission is to mobilise young people to accept Christ’s call to be Kingdom workers. We believe that young people can actively serve as Kingdom workers in their families, schools and communities – and we will humbly serve Christ by extending that message of hope and purpose. We believe that God has big plans for young people in the Church and are honoured to call young people to action across the globe.
MOVE is CIY's residential event intentionally designed for 14-18 year olds ... but it's more than just another youth event. It's an all-inclusive experience that not only provides meals, lodging, activities and age-intentional programming. MOVE provides a spark that leads young people to discover and embrace the Kingdom work and purpose that God has called them to.Learn More
At CIY we believe that prayer is the foundation of youth ministry. In partnership with local churches and youth ministries we want to commit to praying for the youth of Ireland. To facilitate this we gather people to pray at various times through the year.Learn More
