The Benefits of your Generosity

Christian Youth Theater relies on the donations of patrons and supporters so we can provide quality theater education across the country. According to “The Value and Quality of Arts Education: A Statement of Principles”, students who participate in the arts do better in school, stay in school longer, and win more academic awards. They are also three times more likely to go to college and become more confident, considerate, pro-social and pro-civic citizens! Your generous donation ensures that our students are given these benefits, so that they can go on to build a stronger world for future generations.

Christian Youth Theater is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization. Since revenue from ticket sales and class tuition is not enough to cover operating costs, every dollar you contribute assures that CYT can continue to deliver top-notch affordable program and achieve its goals in develop character in children one stage at a time.

Two Worlds, One Family

The Toews Baby Bottle Adoption Collection

Each term at CYT we encourage character development by giving our students an opportunity to participate in a ministry project that goes along with a character trait that coordinates with our production. Disney’s Tarzan is a story where two worlds become one through the mystery of adoption and this term as students are “Learning to Care” they will do so in a tangible way by collecting coins in baby bottles to support one local family’s journey to adoption.
Saying yes to Jesus is what Jeremy and Jody Toews are all about. Not only do they serve as missionaries in Indonesia through Mission Aviation Fellowship, but they also have a heart for the blessing of children. With four bio kids they have decided to open their home and heart to one more child through the gift of Adoption. The Toews are currently adopting a US baby through A New Beginning Adoption Agency in Boise, Idaho, and still need to raise funds to make it happen. They are on a 4-month furlough until May. The collected gift will be presented to the family at a Tarzan performance.
We encourage you to have participate in this unique ministry project by donating through our website. We hope you will consider partnering with CYT to bless the Toews family and help them bring their baby home. Let’s watch what God will do!
