YOUTH FOR CHRIST International
Youth For Christ is reaching young people everywhere, working together 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 to prayer, passion for sharing the love of Christ and commitment to social involvement.
YFC began in 1944 when a group of Chicago evangelists shared their vision to reach teenagers with the Gospel. Currently, nearly 1500 adults are working in YFC ministries in nearly 200 local chapters across the United States. These staff members, together with 7500 volunteer workers and board members, are reaching out to lost teenagers in 1240 communities nationwide.
YFC, which is headquartered in Denver, Colorado, has chartered ministries in 120 other countries of the world. Overseas activities are directed by national leadership teams in each country.
