Reaching Canadian Youth
The Canadian Youth Network is a non-profit charity that pastors youth pastors, provides coaching for youth leaders, runs events and creates/promotes resources to assist youth leaders in guiding teens to put their hope in Jesus. Our dream is that every teenager in Canada has an opportunity to experience God’s love, respond to the gospel and be discipled in a healthy church. Our ministry can be broken down into four key categories:
CoachingCYN offers a two-year one-on-one coaching program to help emerging and existing leaders.
PastoralCYN meets with youth pastors and leaders who contact us to talk about their ministry or personal life.
NetworkingOur goal is to help youth workers to unite with other youth workers to reach their community with the Gospel.
EventsCYN hosts three major events per year geared towards resourcing and discipling youth workers and youth.
The Canadian Youth Network is Gospel-Driven. We believe that the Gospel shows us how we can be saved, provides a model for growth, and propels is into the community to love our neighbours. In everything we do, our message to youth, youth leaders and youth pastors are to:
- Live an authentic faith
- Model a disciple making ministry
- Network to reach community youth
- Encourage pastors in other communities to do the same.
The Canadian Youth Network is a non-profit charity that relies on the donations of people, churches, and organizations who believe in our ministry. CYN plays a key role in supporting leaders who encourage youth to follow Christ and live the way Jesus lived. Each year we see hundreds of teens come to Christ through our Change Conference and additionally through our Lunch Tour we invest in hundreds of youth leaders as they reach out to an estimated 11,000+ young people across Ontario and some parts of Canada.
CYN has been a huge encouragement to me, from Change Conference to the Lunch Tours. I love the equipping they provide for not only myself but also for my youth leaders and students as well. Many of my students and leaders have been challenged by speakers and have encountered Jesus in very tangible ways. I am very thankful for Canadian Youth Netowrk’s support as I work and serve in ministry.”Kristin Schut
