2015 Living Centers

Each summer, Central Texas Conference Youth in Mission (CTCYM) has more than 1,500 youth and adult volunteers who put their faith into action by repairing and rebuilding homes, nurseries, community centers, and other structures that have been weathered by age, poverty or natural disaster. We also serve community centers, nursing homes, and food/clothing pantries by providing extra hands to help in any way possible. Our prayer is that through this work God would work through us to provide a blessing to the people we serve. 

For the June trip of 2015, CTCYM feels called to serve throughout Louisiana.  CTCYM has served in Louisiana on three other occasions in the summers of 1996, 2004, and 2011. Our youth and adults were received with warmth and love by churches and communities and were incredibly blessed by the opportunity to serve. With Bishop Harvey’s blessing, CTCYM will return to Louisiana June 14-20, 2015.

Every other year, the July trip focuses on serving in our own Central Texas Conference. The summer of 2015 will be an “In-Conference” year, which presents us with many exciting possibilities for service in congregations already well-versed in the mission of CTCYM.  This "In-Conference" trip will engage July 12-17, 2015.

We are working with local Louisiana United Methodist Churches, and churches in the Central Texas Conference, to identify host churches and community needs. Each host church (“Living Center”) will be led by well-trained leaders from our conference who are experienced in working with people of the community and our youth of CTCYM.

We always enjoy any information you would like to share regarding our target locations, be it potential host churches, communities in need, or organizations with which we might partner to find work needing to be done. We also welcome you to share our intentions and contact information with churches in these areas who may be interested in hosting one of our groups.
