Youth Group


CYF has the primary goal of seeing that our youth discover who God so that they will turn to Christ in a personal relationship, grow in their knowledge and love of God, live their lives in grateful response to His grace, and share their faith with others.

 It is our desire to communicate to the students at Beneva Christian Church that they matter to God, in the world, and in our local body.  Our goal is provide them with a place where they are welcomed, heard and accepted into a spiritual family that will not judge them.

 In order to respond to the social and spiritual needs of our youth, this ministry seeks to provide spiritual discipleship through teaching and modeling a life of integrity, interaction with one another by question and discussion time, guidance to seek answers from the Word of God, and by providing activities, and events that will allow them to express their faith through their own words and actions.

They are encouraged to use their individual talents in the programs and ministries that interest them in an effort to nurture their growth as disciples, so that they may follow the example of Christ.



Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12
