Serving incarcerated youth in Arizona

What is Chayah?

Chayah is an ecumenical ministry for incarcerated youth at the Adobe Mountain and Black Canyon Schools. It provides 3-day, volunteer run retreats at the schools. There are Group Reunions on Saturday afternoons for the boys and girls on alternating weeks, twice a month.

The names of the participants are unknown until they arrive for the 3-day retreat.  Just know that each young woman and young man is picked by God to attend.  
Inside Youth Team: 
We have several youth on the inside who participate on team.  Some are cooks, some are table leaders.  Some of the table leaders also give a talk, either by themselves or with an adult.  It’s inspiring to see these youth grow as they experience the role of servant.  It’s not possible to publish their names so we just ask for your prayers for this very special group of young people.
