These figures are a compilation of statistics reported on Annual Ministry Reviews from 2021. They are close approximation but not absolute totals. Media includes literature distribution, TV, radio and internet.
“It was a year like no other. Our world has not experienced
such confusion, turmoil, and unceasing change in recent
history. This year will go down as one for the ages!” That was
the general sentiment in the first year of COVID-19…and
then came 2021. This past year brought even more confusion,
turmoil and change. Restrictions varied month to month and
nation to nation. Planning was done with an asterisk in many
cases, and only towards the end of the ministry year were our
leadership teams able to give a hug to each other in person.
Into this gap jumped our Youth for Christ staff all over the
globe. We reimagined what ministry could look like, and then
we did it. We took what we had learned in 2020 and built on
it to create new ways to connect with youth. We did not give
up on the message of hope, the message of eternal salvation,
the message of Jesus Christ. 2021 was the year of reimagining
Youth for Christ International.
