Youth for Christ is its people. Without our staff – “men and women of whom the world is not worthy” (Hebrews 11:38) – the Mission would not be accomplished, the Vision could not be applied and the very call of God to “Go” would be stranded. We are now well over 50,000 strong and we add hundreds of thousands more when we include intercessors, ministry partners (donors) and other volunteers. Youth for Christ gives great evidence of the love of God. Our staff love sacrificially out of pure gratitude for what the Lord has done for us!
But the Word of Christ still rings sadly true – “the harvest is ripe but the youth workers are few” (Luke 10:2). The next great frontier is to mobilize the Church, to empower the Church, to challenge the Church with the global, loving task of sharing Jesus with an entire generation. Let’s be contagious; YFC people have a Jesus-DNA. Part of our objective is to role-model for local churches, the Body of Christ, everywhere that the desire of God’s heart is that “none should perish” (2 Peter 3:9).
Please share with us your stories of partnering with a local church, of encouraging brothers and sisters in evangelistic fervor. We are ONE YFC, but it doesn’t stop there. ONE YFC, ONE BODY OF CHRIST, ONE KINGDOM OF GOD!
