Welcome to Central Pa Youth Ministries of Juniata County! Some folks may know CPYM by Youth for Christ--and we've been around at some form or another since the 1940's! Today, CPYM is spread over 8 counties, with a 8-person staff, 3 Youth centers, vehicles and an annual operating budget of nearly $800,000.
Here in Juniata County, we have one full-time staff person, multiple mentors and a youth center, the Sausman Center, located in Thompsontown. We are involved in both of our county high schools, Juniata and East Juniata, our Jr high--Tuscarora Jr High--and even in our elementary schools. We visit students during lunch at the schools, attend sporting events and other programs.
Each week, we have Xtreme Club for our students at the Sausman Center. We also have camps throughout the year, starting in December with Snow Camp (or Xtreme Escape) at CRC in East Waterford, PA. In late February, we host our biggest event, IMPACT in Harrisburg. Nearly 1000 students from youth groups throughout the area and state attend this huge event with a nationally known speaker and band. Finally, in June, we have our week-long Summer Camp in Ocean City, NJ. Lots of time to meet new friends, spend time on the boardwalk and beach and dive into God's Word.
CPYM is funded entirely by businesses, churches and individuals who believe in our mission to bring the life-saving, life-changing message of Jesus Christ to teens in our community. We need your prayers and if you are able, your support. Without you, this ministry would not exist in the form it does today.
