For two separate weeks each summer, youth groups from across the Central Texas Conference blend together to become CTCYM Living Centers. Each Center is led by a well-trained, all-volunteer staff dedicated to providing those youth and adults with a spirit-filled week of service. Not only will you bless the lives of people in need, but you will also bless the lives of the youth and adults you bring to CTCYM this year.

UPDATE: MinistrySafe Compliance form is now due only two weeks before the day of your trip. For June
trips, forms are due June 2, 2017, and for the July trip, forms are due July 7, 2017.

  • Please note! The MinistrySafe Oversight Committee has instructed that should we not receive a church's
    CTCYM form into the CTCYM office by the due date, we must email the Group Leader and the Group
    Leader's pastor to notify them that if the form is not received within 48 hours, we must cancel the group's
  • Please consider your pastor and SSA's schedule. Last year we had a number of folks run into trouble
    getting their forms signed because person were out of town on vacation or otherwise unavailable.
  • If you have questions about MinistrySafe or the compliance form, please do not hesitate to ask.
