Hi, and welcome to my website. My name is Mark Foor, and I am the club leader for the West Perry Xtreme Club. I started in this position in January of 2008, as a full-time missionary to the teens in the West Perry School District. My job and my passion is to reach out to teens, teaching them about the love, grace and forgiveness they can receive from a relationship with Jesus Christ. This awesome opportunity came to me through CPYM. Central Pennsylvania Youth Ministries, CPYM, is a non-profit organization based out of Shamokin Dam, Pennsylvania.
Our organization has been working in Central Pennsylvania since the mid 1940's. We currently have clubs in Berwick, Bloomsburg, Selinsgrove, Mifflinburg, Milton, Lewistown, Mifflin, Juniata and Newport, Greenwood and West Perry School Districts in Perry County.

CPYM uses as its basic outreach programs a club meeting and small groups. In order to have an effective ministry with young people we work long and hard at developing personal relationships with these young people. Any type of creative hanging out is at the heart of getting to know teenagers. In addition, the following are also done:
1. Occasional mass rallies and concerts
2. Consulting and assisting church leaders in their youth work
3. Impact conferences and camps
4. Adult events
6. Camping programs/back packs and retreats
7. Major teen events - Summer Camps and Xtreme Weekends in the winter
8. Missions Trips
9. Small Groups
10. Visiting students in school, and running school Christian clubs
Recognizing that a majority of today's young people attend no church - Jewish, Catholic or Protestant - our clubs provide a weekly, contemporary meeting whose aim is to relate the message and love of Christ to this vast mission field.
The undergirding philosophy of a club outreach is to present to middle/high school students a physical, mental, social and spiritual balanced life that communicates not only the relevance of Biblical Christianity but also clearly demonstrates Jesus as the Savior and Lord of the entire world.
