Regional Youth Events
CYAK primarily works in three regions: the Norton Sound, the Yukon Kuskokwim Delta, and the Road System. Each of these regions are home to numerous Covenant Churches, and many young people! Because not all of our Covenant communities have youth workers, we work to host regional youth events to serve as weekends of encouragement and growth for junior and senior high schoolers throughout the year. At these retreats, students travel from all across their region to Covenant church sites for a weekend of crazy games, great fellowship, and an opportunity to hear the gospel message. We rotate between villages and work to make these retreats happen every year as a way to continue to keep youth and young adults engaged in the Word, and excited about their faith. In the past, we have hosted High School retreats, Jr. High Retreats, and mentoring retreats for various ages throughout the year.
It is uplifting to see the way the Lord uses these gatherings not only to encourage the youth in the villages, but to encourage the communities as well. Through these events, we are able to continue to build relationships with the local church and community, and find ways to work together to reach youth and young adults with the message of Christ. CYAK's regional youth retreats are highly anticipated, and we are excited to continue to interact with youth in this way!
