About Youth for Christ Germany

Youth for Christ Germany, founded in 1948, used its 70th anniversary in 2018 to refocus all ministry departments to our primary target group of unchurched teenagers (aged 12-17). Believing that youth can be reached best by youth, we love to work with young energetic believers (age 18-25) to care for teenagers together. Discipleship is vital to all our programs, which consist of outreaches (local, national, and global) through Project Serve, small groups (e.g. SuperWoman), and regular youth programs. We are establishing drop-in options in and around Darmstadt and want to extend to other drop-in facilities in the next years as God directs. We strive to combine relationship-based youth work with a wise use of digital media (like the DASK app).

Youth for Christ Germany has 12 full-time paid staff members that serve alongside more than 70 full-time volunteers (gap-year programs) each year. The need for consistent and sustainable relationship-based youth work is huge in our secular nation! Lockdowns in 2020 and 2021 made the situation for teenagers on the margins even more dramatic. We long to come alongside those teenagers in need!
