Vision: Let every military brat believe.

The journey from adolescence to adulthood has never been easy. In every generation and in every place, teenagers have struggled to come to grips with their place in the world. They want to know if there is meaning to life in general and if their own lives are important. Among our nation's youth are some 500,000 teenagers whose parents and guardians have committed their lives to service with our armed forces. These students are scattered among overseas bases and installations in the United States.

At Club Beyond (as it is known to the kids), we believe that there is a great need to be available for these young people, to build meaningful, no-strings-attached relationships with them. We believe that one of the best ways to help military kids is to affirm them and be available to celebrate life with them. Toward this end, Club Beyond staff and volunteers seek to love teens unconditionally and provide a model of Christian hope in our military communities through weekly club and fun activities.

Mission statement

Celebrate life with Military Teens, introduce them to the Life Giver, and help them become more like Him.

Military Community Youth Ministries (MCYM) was founded on July 29, 1980. It was created in response to military leaders and chaplains who were asking for a qualified youth ministry to specifically serve military teens.

"Club Beyond" is the name that teens early in our history created to call the local ministry programs.

With God's leading Club Beyond immediately took off, and within a decade we had ministry on Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine installations, both overseas and stateside.

Program accomplishments


Pray for the teens, staff and volunteers in this ministry, and for more people to join our staff so they can respond to invitations from military bases.
Volunteers are needed.
Organize and lead a Club Beyond Community Support Group at the local military base.
