Youth For Christ

God's Story. Our Story. Their Story.

Our Mission

Introducing young people to Jesus at pivotal moments

YFC is a movement that reaches young people everywhere with the hope of Christ. We work with the local church and other like-minded partners to raise up lifelong followers of Jesus who lead by their godliness in lifestyle, devotion to the Word of God and prayer, passion for sharing the love of Christ, and commitment to social involvement.

3Story Evangelism

It's about three stories...

3Story is a different kind of evangelism. It is a way of life that guides followers of Christ to BE good news while telling stories of THE Good News - Jesus Christ. Based squarely on relationships, 3Story focuses on God's story (found in scripture), my story (the adult leader), and their story (students and their friends). This pattern is represented in the three rings of the YFC logo.
