CTCYM 2020: July Living Center Adult Leadership Application



Plans are well underway for CTCYM 2020! The CTCYM Advisory & Task Force Committee is looking forward to another exciting summer! 

Strong leadership is essential to creating a positive experience for the youth and adults who participate and the clients they serve. To read further on any of the Adult Leadership roles in a Living Center, you may download the leadership manuals on the Center Leadership page of www.ctcym.org. Thank you for prayerfully considering serving as a member of the Living Center Adult Leadership Team on one of the trips this year!

  • July Trip for Junior High groups and Combination (Sr./Jr.High) groups, July 19-24, 2020 to East Texas.

If you are unable to attend training and have served in your preferred Adult Leadership role for three out of the last five years, you may instead complete the online training. Training links will be available in January 2020. Leadership Training is mandatory and must be completed in order to serve in 2020, so please be certain you can attend this scheduled training before submitting your application. Contact Claire Condrey immediately with any questions regarding this mandatory Leadership Training.

Please note: This application must be completed in order to be considered for Center Leadership. If you will also be attending the June trip, please complete a Leadership Application for that trip as well.
