Mission Statement

The vision of Youth for Christ is, as a part of the body of Christ, to see every young person in every people group in every nation have the opportunity to make an informed decision to become a follower of Jesus Christ and to become a part of a local church. 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.

Description

The Youth for Christ (YFC) national movement began in 1944 under the prominent leadership of the Reverend Billy Graham. Fort Wayne Area Youth for Christ opened its doors seven years later in 1951. Since that time, the Fort Wayne chapter has grown into the largest of 171 chapters throughout the United States. As part of the body of Christ, YFC's vision is to see every young person, in every people group, in every nation, have the opportunity to make an informed decision to be a follower of Jesus Christ and become part of a local church.

Fort Wayne YFC youth professionals currently serve the students and administrations in 18 high schools, 15 middle schools, 3 juvenile institutions, and 4 urban neighborhoods throughout Wabash, Huntington, Whitley, and Allen Counties. Youth for Christ is a non-denominational community-based organization. Forty-four full-time, 25 part-time, and 300 volunteer staff lead weekly programs in leadership development, bible study, alcohol and drug prevention, abstinence training, character development, tutoring, recreation leagues, and community service/missions trips. Approximately 5,000 area students will participate annually.
