cropped Youth for Christ 1


Youth for Christ's heart is to support and equip churches who recognise the importance of sharing Jesus with the next generation and want to make the brave but necessary step of confidently engaging with young people where they are, both physically and spiritually. When young people are out of their homes, there are three places where they often spend their time: at school, in their own community (either in person or online), or engaging in some sort of local church or youth provision.
