A ministry of CEF, a place for middle-schoolers and young teens

(ages 11-14) to enjoy faith, fun, and friends.

At J-You Connection Club you will:

  • Discuss and learn the truth about things that really matter and that are everlasting—like hope, faith, salvation, joy, love, courage, and more

  • Learn more about Jesus Christ and His awesome Father in Heaven

  • Participate in activities that will feed your faith

  • Build genuine friendships

  • Enjoy and share meaningful music

  • Have crazy fun during game time

J-You Connection is a safe place with leaders who care about you now and for your future. Parental permission is required.

Can we really teach the Bible in public schools?

Yes, we can! In its 2001 decision, the United States Supreme Court ruled in Good News Clubs v. Milford Central School that under the First Amendment Good News Clubs and J-You Connection Clubs are afforded the right to equal access to public schools in the United States. We can meet in public schools during after-school hours on the same terms as any other community group.

Who teaches a J-You Connection Club?

Concerned Christians who want to share the love of God and the message of Jesus Christ work together volunteering their time and energy to prepare and train to teach adolescents and teens in J-You Connection Clubs. They are trained by CEF to create a club that is exciting and informative so that adolescents and teens are enthusiastic to attend. All club teachers and workers have signed the CEF Statement of Faith and have agreed to abide by the policies of the organization. All CEF club teachers and workers are screened according to our Child Protection Policy and are required to view Protecting Today’s Child prior to participation in any club.
