Kyle Wynja | Chairman, Board of Directors, Denver (Colorado, USA) Youth for Christ
Our ministry is built story by story. And what a story God has written for Denver Area Youth For Christ this year.
2016 – A Remarkable Year
With God’s grace and your encouragement, our ministry’s story in 2016 is a remarkable one:
- 4,000 kids in our sphere of influence
- 2,750 youth in authentic Christ-sharing relationships
- 975 decisions for Christ
- 450 adult and young leader volunteers
- 6,000 youth wanting a caring, competent, Christ-centered guide in their life
Another significant achievement? We have matched 300 mentors with youth longing for Christ, a milestone 10 years in the making.
It’s our honor to be the storytellers on your behalf and meet these kids right where they are. Today, we serve in 10 juvenile detention centers, 9 high schools, and 3 middle schools — and counting.
Giving Life to Their Stories Each Week
But perhaps what I like most about this story is that it’s an ongoing one, written and rewritten by our dedicated staff and volunteers all the time.
Each week, our ministry leaders lead:
- 25 bible study groups
- 13 church services
- 24 hours of 1-on-1 chaplain visits
- 20 Campus Life club meetings and breakfasts
Thank you for your generous gifts and prayers in 2016. We can’t wait to see the story God writes for kids in our community in 2017.
