About Youth for Christ Niger

Youth for Christ Niger staff, L to R, Mamoudou, Assistant National Coordinator, Akani, Office Secretary, and Timothy, Training Director.

Ali Moussa Hamani started the Youth for Christ ministry in Niger in June, 1998. In 1999 we were officially recognized by the Republic of Niger as a religious association.

We started the ministry with a musical group called Peniel and a football team. Both of these programs have proven to be very effective in evangelizing young people. In 2005 we opened an Evangelical School called Peniel. Today we have over eight hundred young people to whom we preach the Gospel five times a week. We also have television programs that allow us to preach the Gospel to thousands of people once a week.

COVID-19 changed a lot of things. From March to May, 2020, all activities were suspended. But in June, 2020, we restarted activities by respecting the barrier measures decreed by the authorities. We also developed social media communications to bypass restrictions related to COVID-19. We are glad to see that this form of communication works very well by the grace of God.
