CLAY - Christ-Like Asian Youth

About Us

Mission Statement

The Christ-Like Asian Youth (CLAY) is a Christian organization that has a mission to strengthen and encourage youth toward spiritual maturity in Christ - for His glory.

Our Purpose

CLAY has been working with youth of Southeast Asian churches and communities in the greater Great Lakes region for 25+ years; from ages 12+ and young adults to foster spiritual growth, mentorship, and leading a life that is Christ-like. We offer opportunities for involvement to youth leadership and young adults who would like to continue fostering fellowship with their home churches. Currently, there are strong connections made with churches in four states – Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin – and with five different ethnic groups: Hmong, Karen, Laotian, Cambodian, and Vietnamese. There are five active churches partnered with our ministry.
