    The Caribbean Baptist Fellowship Youth Department (CBFYD) is known for its dynamism. They are a vibrant collection of youth on fire for God. They seek to (i) present the gospel of Jesus Christ as the only tool which can hook an un-churched youth to experience the greatest love of all (ii) inform and educate youth and youth leaders on critical issues affecting Caribbean young people  (iii) engage youth through Caribbean culture (iv) turn Caribbean youth on to mission.

    The CBFYD engages in youth rallies and conventions to promote Christ. Members of the CBFYD executive also participate in Youth weekends i.e. short visits to share with and encourage youth from a Caribbean territory. Youth Weekends have been held in Jamaica, Guyana, Trinidad, Barbados, Dominica and the Tuck and Caicos Islands.

    The CBFYD also produces a quarterly newsletter. The 8th Caribbean Youth Festival held in Nassau, Bahamas in July 2009 was one of the most successful activities of the CBFYD. It brought together over 500 youths from across the Caribbean and USA. Needless to say, the stage has been set for an even greater Festival in 2012.

    The 10th Caribbean Baptist Fellowship Youth Festival was held in Roseau, Dominica from July 23-27, 2014 under the theme: Youth on Fire- Fully Ignited, Radically Engaged.” Two hundred and twenty-one persons representing ten countries were in attendance. The countries from which the participants came were  Guyana, Trinidad, Grenada, Barbados, Guadeloupe, Dominica, Jamaica, Bahamas, Turks and Caicos Islands and the United States. The festival featured: worship, bible studies, business, workshops and a mission project in collaboration with Samaritan’s Feet and Samford University.  Mrs. Jody McKenna from Trinidad and Tobago was elected and installed as the new President at the Festival.
