What is Youth For Christ?

Youth For Christ is a non-denominational, youth-centered, Christian association of churches that aims to participate in the body of Christ in responsible evangelism of youth, presenting them with the person, work and teachings of Christ and discipling them into area churches. The vision of Youth for Christ is to provide a balanced life approach to give teens the skills and hope they need to live in a turbulent world by the power of Christ.  Because the needs and longings of young people are unique to their time, place, and life experience, Youth for Christ always seeks to share the Good News about Jesus in a way that is relevant to them. By offering a variety of teen-centered experiences, Youth For Christ reaches out to middle and high school aged students in a way that is both unique and exciting.   Skateboarding outreaches, overnight retreats, crazy games and interesting speakers are just a few of the ways that Youth For Christ engages young people and introduces them to the incredible gift of salvation through Jesus Christ.
