About Youth for Christ Uganda

Youth for Christ Uganda was founded in 1992. We are passionate about reaching young people with the gospel of Christ. We do this through school and community evangelism and discipleship outreaches, counselling and care of pregnant teenagers, leadership development, and education of young people in need. Through music, dance, drama, life stories, training, counseling, and care we deliver the gospel to young people.

Ugandan school youth

Over the years, we have established three centers: our head office, “Zion” in Kilokole (Central Uganda); Idudi (Eastern Uganda); and Gulu, Northern Uganda. Our vision is to continue to reach young people, focusing more on discipleship of young people who will evangelize and disciple others.

Counselling and care for girls who are faced with crisis pregnancy and have been rejected from home is one of our care activities. There is also a vocational training program which helps the young mothers to learn a trade skill and better their lives.

Ministry has proven to be very effective because there is now more time with the youth to build trustworthy relationships and they are discipled for a longer period. All staff and volunteers are excited for the many more years to come, building lasting relationships with young people so that through it many will come to know and live for the Lord. We are always grateful to God and our partners who have made our service to the Lord possible and worthwhile.
