- Youth Camps
- AYC sponsorships
- Bible College Scholarships
- Holiday Youth Convention

- Family Ministries Retreat
How can I help?
It takes an entire state filled with students and adults to help raise a great offering each year. Here are a few programs you can be involved in to help:
What is C31?
C31 is an opportunity for students to raise $961 for Sheaves for Christ by finding 31 sponsors who will give $31. Participants could choose to set a goal of 1 sponsor a day for a month (31 days in August).

What is The Real McCoy Contest?
Many young people have discovered their passion for God’s Kingdom by getting personally involved in life-giving SFC fundraising via The Real McCoy Contest. You can be involved in this exciting contest as we challenge our Apostolic youth to live sacrificially and become a generation of givers.
Winners from each district across North America will be flown to the World Evangelism Center in St. Louis, MO, for an exclusive weekend with the executives of the General Youth Division.
