Organization Description

Youth for Christ is a ministry that actively pursues 11-19-year-olds who are walking through pivotal moments in their lives. A pivotal moment could be anything from navigating a new school, dealing with a family breakup, becoming a teen parent, to spending time in juvenile detention. Much of our ministry is to at-risk teens. These young people often feel overlooked, and it’s our passion to make them feel seen, heard, and valued. YFC is a place that sees, hears, and celebrates young people for who they are. We get to know a kid’s story, and as we do, we share our life and story with the ultimate goal of connecting them to God’s story.
