About Christ in Youth

CHRIST IN YOUTH (CIY) has spent more than 40 years calling students and leaders to boldly live for Christ through the hope of the gospel message and a call to Kingdom action. In partnership with the local church, CIY reaches more than 65,000 students and adult leaders by way of more than 100 events across the United States and in more than 10 foreign countries. Within the next decade, CIY estimates more than one million students and leaders will be impacted worldwide through its programmes, curriculum and resources. As an innovative voice in student ministry, the organisation’s programmes are directed toward enhancing the spiritual formation of students, in an effort to help young generations respond in faith and in service to the call of Christ. CIY’s partnership on this research study, intended as a resource for the Church and other youth ministry organisations in Ireland, is part of a broader focus to work alongside local churches in Europe.
