For every kid, one at a time

 

 

YFC reaches young people everywhere, working together with the local church and other like-minded partners. Our goal is to raise up lifelong followers of Jesus. We disciple youth through our godliness in lifestyle, devotion to prayer and the Word of God, passion for sharing the love of Christ and commitment to social involvement.

 

Every day YFC staff and volunteers connect with thousands of young people who need Jesus. We meet at community centers, high schools, middle schools, juvenile institutions, coffee shops, and local hangouts. Whether our setting is rural or urban, our focus is the message of Jesus.  We accomplish our vision by connecting young people to qualified and trained adults in a mentorship that compliments both the adult and the student.  An example would be a young man that says, "I want to learn how to ride and work on motorcycles".  Umpqua Valley Youth For Christ connects that student with a local Christian mentor that can not only train that young person in the skill that they have, but can engage that young person in conversations about Jesus Christ, and show the value in participating in the family of local believers.  Friendships are grown.  The community is engaged.  The student learns a life-long skill.  Adults are involved in the betterment of the community.  Both parties are encouraged through the work of Christ.
