With over 20 years of exposure to Youth for Christ in various contexts, I am more convinced than ever that this movement is a cause worthy of our time, talents, and treasure.

In Topeka, Kansas, I saw Campus Life programs meeting teens on middle school and high school campuses. Through weekly club meetings as well as fun events, trips, and camps, Campus Life helps kids develop socially, mentally, physically, and spiritually as they struggle with the many pressures of growing up.

In Wanganui, New Zealand, I witnessed a drop-in center ministry of Youth for Christ, where students received help with homework and met caring adults who built relationships with them and introduced them to the love of Christ.

In Chiang Mai, Thailand, I saw how teaching English as a second language opened doors for the gospel among Buddhist and godless young people—and how a thriving community of young Thai believers were equipped to share their faith in a culture where Christianity is virtually nonexistent.

In Denver, Colorado, I regularly heard stories of at-risk boys and girls who are in trouble with the law or incarcerated finding help and hope through mentoring, Bible studies, and church services in Youth for Christ’s Juvenile Justice Ministry. YFC mentors spend a minimum of one year with the mentee, helping them make the transition from lockdown back to life in their community.  In a world where kids are increasingly growing up without any exposure to a God who loves them and wants to give them life, YFC ministries around the globe offer them safe and fun programs that help them wrestle with life’s pressures while engaging them in a growing faith in the God of the Bible.

In short, YFC ministries help kids connect with caring adult mentors who introduce them to Jesus and the good news that He loves them and invites them to an abundant life.

Currently residing in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, I serve remotely as part of the Youth for Christ International team. Our team provides vision, strategy, and resources to inspire, strengthen, and advance local Youth for Christ ministries to be more effective in engaging, equipping, and empowering young people for Christ.

Additionally, I serve part-time as the Digital Marketing Manager for Livada Orphan Care.
