Our Triple Threat

Character: We look to the person of Jesus Christ as the perfect and ultimate example of character.  At CYT we want to grow in Christlike character through all we do.  This is our foundation as an organization.

Culture: Our culture is vibrant, imaginative, inclusive, and uplifting.  Though CYT may not be for everyone, everyone is invited and all are welcome.

Craft: We produce quality productions, classes, and camps holding a high standard of excellence in everything that we do.

If I am ever feeling sad, I just think about CYT!

Statement of Inclusion

Our CYT community includes diverse cultures, creeds, political beliefs and positions on social issues.  CYT is the common ground where we work towards a common goal, treating all with respect, understanding and love.

CYT leaders, families, and students must be able to hold to their personal convictions while simultaneously demonstrating grace and compassion to all those they encounter regardless of gender, faith, race, sexual orientation, or political affiliation.  While we are passionate about making CYT a place where everyone is welcomed, we understand that it is not for everyone.  No one will ever be turned away from CYT because of a disagreement concerning personal or political convictions.  At the same time, CYT does not demand adoption of any specific religious doctrine or personal convictions and will not permit any leader, student, or family to disrupt the core mission of CYT by promoting any individual political or social issue while participating in CYT programs.  Our personal convictions regarding politics, social issues, and doctrine should be left as personal convictions while at CYT.  While we support churches and organizations who specialize in these conversations, we understand our lane and our calling to our mission.

Colossians 3:12-16
“Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, heartfelt compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience bearing with one another and forgiving one another, if one has a grievance against another; as the Lord has forgiven you, so must you also do.  And over all these put on love, that is, the bond of perfection.  And let the peace of Christ control your hearts, the peace into which you were also called into one body.  And be thankful.  Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, as in all wisdom you teach and admonish one another singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.”
