CIY Team Update —

By Eric Epperson

In response to the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, Christ in Youth has canceled dozens of events and trips. Every cancelation has produced ministry and financial loss. We are grateful for our partner churches and individuals, like you, who continue to support CIY during this time. Your belief in Kingdom work and your financial investments have sustained CIY through this unique season.

Even with your generosity, the financial loss has required additional steps as we move forward to ensure a healthy future. This week, Christ in Youth leadership had to make a very difficult decision to release members of our staff.

This process has been painful, and we believe these short-term decisions are necessary to ensure the long-term health of CIY, enabling the mission of calling young people to Kingdom work to continue in 2021 and beyond. The entire organization agonizes the loss of each individual who has been released from our team and invites you to join us in prayer for them, their families, and their next steps. Our team is grateful for the talents they shared with us during their tenure, and trust that God will continue to use them to bless the Kingdom in the years to come.
