Excel and Break Out

Excel and Break Out are no longer being offered.  After many months of prayer and consideration, Capital District Youth For Christ made the tough decision to cancel these conferences.

We thank those of you who have attended these conferences over the past 30 years. Please see the statement below for more information.

Since 1986, Capital District Youth For Christ (CDYFC) has provided annual youth conferences for teenagers in the Capital District and beyond. With the help of hundreds of volunteers and staff, Excel and Break Out have been a big part of the identity of CDYFC and a positive weekend experience for thousands of youth and youth leaders.

We are grateful for the years you have been a part of Excel and Break Out. After much prayer and conversation for many months we have come to the difficult and challenging decision to no longer hold these two conferences. This has not been an easy decision as we know the value they have held over the years for church youth ministries.

There are many reasons we can provide to you for how we came to this decision. Allow us to share with you the main reason. Youth For Christ is committed to engaging 1 million lost 11-19 year olds in authentic Christ sharing relationships throughout this country. As we have been praying about how CDYFC can be more effective in engaging in as many of these relationships as possible we have decided to redirect our focus and the stewardship of the resources God has granted us.

Thank you for participating in Excel and Break Out. We are humbled for how God used these weekend experiences these past 30 years.

If you have any questions or concerns please direct them to COO Kevin Post, kpost@cdyfc.org or 518-533-3617.
