About Youth for Christ Singapore
“Keen Teen Crusades” (week long training camps) in the late 1950’s immersed Singaporean youth in the Word of God. The crusades encouraged them to reach out into their communities through the sharing of Gospel tracts and invitations to evangelistic meetings held each night during the camp. Young leaders emerged from KTC, including Youth for Christ Singapore’s first National Director, Kee Kok, who dedicated 18 years of his life to Youth for Christ. Nine of those years he served as both National Director and Area Director for Southeast Asia.
During the 1960’s and 70’s Youth for Christ began school club meetings and teen-to-teen evangelism. “Geared to the Times, Anchored to the Rock” meant Youth for Christ kept up with the youth scene through IT, sports, and adventure initiatives in the 1990’s and beyond.
Now, with many schools closed or conducting online classes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Youth for Christ has been running E-Missions and Virtual Quests. Richard Tan became Singapore’s National Director in 2020 as Youth for Christ Singapore continues sixty-plus years of reaching Singaporean youth for Christ.
