Local Youth Support
Covenant Youth of Alaska is committed to the development of ministry to youth and young adults in Alaska. The vast majority of communities throughout Alaska do not have full-time youth workers. It is thanks to many volunteers and community members that young people are being shown the love of Christ. As a ministry, we want to do whatever we can to encourage, support, resource and connect these volunteers across the state. Below are a couple of ways that we work toward this priority:
Youth Ministry Training, Coaching and Consulting
CYAK provides in-person training for volunteer youth workers in communities across the state. These trainings can be geared toward whatever area of youth ministry is the greatest need. We also are able to work with a church to provide strategic planning for a particular youth ministry site. We are dedicated to helping churches and communities succeed in reaching youth and young adults in Alaska!
Village Youth Ministry Volunteer Conference Call
CYAK hosts monthly conference calls specifically geared toward the needs of churches in rural Alaska to encourage, support, and resource those working with youth. If you are interested in joining our monthly conference calls, or would like to talk with someone further about the opportunities for youth ministry training in your community, contact us! Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or give us a call at 907.625.1525. We are here to resource and encourage you! We are so grateful for the commitment of so many people across the state to reach youth and young adults with the love, hope and peace of Christ.
The community of Hooper Bay was hit hard in 2015 by a string of suicides. CYAK partnered with the Alaska Conference to send a ministry care team to Hooper Bay as a response. It was a time of care, encouragement, prayer and grieving.
