Central Texas Conference Youth in Mission (CTCYM) is grateful that you are considering hosting a group! This is a wonderful opportunity for your congregation to become involved with your youth, your community, the larger church and missions.The primary needs of CTCYM for a successful week depends on the support of our host churches (also called "Living Centers"). The facilities of the Living Centers are always left clean when we depart. 


CTCYM works with local United Methodist churches to identify living facilities and work needed in their communities. Each living center consists of between 80 and 120 people composed of one to six church youth groups from the Central Texas Conference. Each living center is staffed with well-trained leadership who are experienced in working with CTCYM.

As we begin preparations for the summer of 2020, CTCYM feels called to serve in communities in Arkansas and East Texas.
