Our Thanks

To all the adults that gave their time as directors, counselors, and counselors-in-training this summer. The Region cannot offer outdoor ministry (summer camp) without you and your talents.

To all our congregations that sent campers, prayed for our campers and counselors, and help pay for some or all of the summer camp fees for campers this year.

To First Christian Church in Cherokee for their financial gift that paid the site fee for all the adults (21 of them) that volunteered at Chi Rho Camp this summer.

Ministry: Children, Youth, Young Adults

Your generous gifts to the Disciples Mission Fund or the Annual Fund help the Region connect congregations, but they do not underwrite the program ministries offered by the Region. DMF Funding and Annual Fund giving underwrites the operation of the Region (Disciples Center, staff salaries, benefits, and expenses, the Board and Commission work), but does not provide money for sponsoring the many events, retreats, and experiences of the program ministries offered by the Region.  Please consider a gift or any size to support CYYA Ministries.

spacerSummer Ministry
Each young person attending a summer ministry experience helps pay for the adult volunteers for that week. This fee is added to the campe fee and is based on the number of campers that attend and the number of adults needed. Funds raised for Summer Ministry could lower the cost for everyone that attends a camp in the future no matter where it may be hosted.  Please consider a gift to support Summer Ministry and help us create funding to support this ongoing program ministry of the Region.  

Are you considering a "legacy gift" to fund a ministry in your congregation or through the Region?  The Oklahoma Disciples Foundation does this kind of work to support ministries throughout the Disciples of Christ in Oklahoma.

Make your check to Christian Church in Oklahoma and note in the memo line what program ministry you are supporting.

Mail To: 301 NW 36th Street / Oklahoma City, OK, 73118. Please indicate IAS, Youth Ministry, Children's Ministry, Young Adult Ministry, Heifer Week, or  Summer Ministry in the memo line.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!  Contact Rev. Michael Davison for more information about how you can support these missional ministries.

A Word from the Commission with Children, Youth,& Young Adults

The CYYA offers a variety of opportunities throughout the year for persons ages K-35 years old. CYYA  Ministries in Oklahoma are evolving and growing into a future that includes age appropriate experiences and events beyond the summer months for our diverse age bracket.  We need two things: adult volunteers and funding.  Our summer camp directors are always seeking adults to be counselors.  As our opportunities expand we will need a variety of adults with different skills to make this opportunities a reality.  The other major need is funding.

Thanks for Supporting CYYA Ministries.
