About Youth for Christ Trinidad & Tobago
In August 1956, Trinidad and Tobago welcomed to its shores Keith Rowe, a young Jamaican. He introduced the Youth for Christ movement to our twin-island nation.
Over the past two decades, we have had some exciting times under the leadership of the National Director, Pastor Frank Porter. During this time, models including Liberation Day, Camp Glorious and Prayer Kids have impacted the national community.
However, in 2019, with the advent of COVID-19, we were forced to change our operation from being face-to-face to virtual. Thus far we had a very successful virtual Camp Glorious with over 12,000 devices used. Additionally, our monthly Prayer Revival meetings, Boyz Talk and Girlz Talk, geared toward teenagers, have been our focus. The stage is being set for additional models to be implemented virtually.
