| WHo We are |
CIA Boys Clubs are a dynamic new option for boys in first through eighth grade to come together, learn about the gospel and how it teaches us to live our lives as well as to build up their self confidence, develop social skills in a positive atmosphere and learn from strong Christian men exactly what it looks like to have a life in Christ. At a club, leaders or what we call “special agents” will come alongside each of the boys, we call them “agents”, and help mentor and guide them through the challenges that face them in the ever changing and difficult world that we live in.
BY CONNECTING WITH THEIR PEERS AND WITH OUR TEEN AND ADULT LEADERS THE BOYS WHO ATTEND HAVE A COMMUNITY TO BELONG TO AND A FAMILY TO SUPPORT THEM AS THEY LEARN AND GROW IN THEIR UNDERSTANDING OF GOD, HIS WORD AND THE CALLING HE PLACES ON EACH OF OUR LIVES. IT’S A FUN, ENERGETIC AND OFTEN LOUD EXPERIENCE THAT WILL STAY WITH THEM LONG AFTER THE MEETING ENDS. EACH MEETING HAS A LARGE GROUP DEVOTIONAL, SMALL GROUPS WITH 6 -10 AGENTS FOR EVERY 1-2 SPECIAL AGENTS, AND A TIME FOR GAMES THAT WILL CHALLENGE THEM ATHLETICALLY WHILE TEACHING THEM THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT. THEY’LL HEAR THE GOSPEL IN THE DEVOTIONAL AND SEE IT LIVED OUT IN THE GAMES
| The Vision |
CIA is an acronym for Christ In Action. Our vision is to see boys across the country and around the world engaged in a living faith with our Savior, comfortable in expressing that faith openly and leading their communities to Christ for the glory of His kingdom - equipped, empowered and emboldened to show Christ’s love in action in their homes, their schools, their churches and everywhere they go. To lead boys everywhere to a place where they are defined by their love of God and their love for others, not by what the world says “men” should be.
To help boys connect deeper with God, to learn and understand the gospel and grow into men who live out their lives in passionate response to the Good News. To accomplish this mission, we inspire and train teams of men from as young as 16 years old to mentor the next generation. CIA was founded on the principles in 1 Corinthians 16:13-14, and we aspire to see our agents trusting their lives to Jesus and spreading hope and faith everywhere they go.
