About CYI Ministry

Vision

To be an organization that trains and equips young people across the world, to become positive influence in the societies they find themselves, through transformational leadership principles

Mission

We exist to grow youth in fellowship and in honour of God to be like well-nurtured plants and pillars to adorn, so we may reach out to our generation through the principles of Christ's leadership.

Outreach

CYI uses a commumnity based model of establishing local branches. Each branch is founded by a CYI trained leader. Our team provides message series and lesson plans based on our monthly topic.

Meet Pastor Rod

With a yearning heart after youth, the young passionate man of God, Roderick Agyekum, began his ministry about 10 years ago. He began preaching in dormitories of senior high schools especially Achimota School, which eventually turned out to be his favourite home. After a couple of years in senior high school ministry, the vision of CYI burst forth in his heart, leading him to establish what has become the home and answers to the many questions facing today’s youth. His scope of ministry varies from junior high school ministry, senior high school ministry as well as tertiary and the young working class. In all these, his ultimate call and focus remains on the youth. In his walk to fulfil his God sent mission, he has visited and ministered at many youth institutions like schools such as Achimota Senior High School, KNUST,Cape Coast University, University of Ghana Legon, and many others. He has helped and counselled many youth in varying bondages such as homosexuality, theft, sexual immorality, hopelessness, loss of purpose, suicide attacks and pornography addictions. He is a great speaker, a good listener, teacher and an inspiration to the many youth. He believes in the potential and power of the youth, and stands for generational change through the power of the Gospel of Our lord Jesus Christ.
