Youth for Christ is a worldwide Christian movement working with young people around the globe. Motivated by our own faith we give young people everywhere the opportunity to be followers of Jesus Christ. Youth for Christ is made up of tens of thousands of full-time, part-time, and volunteer indigenous staff in more than 100 nations working together in giving every young person an opportunity to be a follower of Jesus Christ.

Youth for Christ reaches young people everywhere, working together with the local church and other like-minded partners to raise up lifelong followers of Jesus who are characterized by godliness in lifestyle, devotion to the Word of God and prayer, boldness in evangelism and commitment to social involvement.
EVANGELISM AND DISCIPLESHIP

We are committed to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all young people and always seek to do so with urgency, using the most culturally acceptable means. We are further committed to provide a ministry of discipleship for each new believer, and to work in partnership with others who desire to accomplish the same mission.

SCRIPTURE

We are committed to the Word of God as the foundation and final authority for life and ministry. We discipline ourselves to study it diligently, apply it daily, and teach its truth to young people.

PRAYER

We are committed to pray and fast for the salvation of lost young people and for the empowerment of God's Holy Spirit in taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ to them.

CHURCH

Believing that the Church is the expression of the body of Christ, we are committed to work in partnership with the local church in fulfilling the Great Commission of Jesus Christ.

PEOPLE

We are committed to people. We believe that young people, volunteers, board members, ministry partners, staff and their families are important first as individuals, and all are vital in the fulfilment of the mission.

MOBILISATION

Knowing the size and urgency of the task, we are committed to mobilise all the available resources of young people, adults, prayer and finance to accomplish the mission.

INTEGRITY

We are committed to a life of integrity through personal and organisational accountability in lifestyle, relationships, finances, ministry management and responsible evangelism.

The wisdom and value of investing in a new generation of leaders has become indisputable. Today Youth for Christ continues to develop young leaders as a key element in its strategy for reaching young people everywhere and giving them the opportunity to be followers of Jesus Christ.

Youth for Christ International works hard to accurately record numbers that resemble people who have made life-changing decisions to follow Jesus. Being a world-wide organization allows for some room to have flexibility in those numbers.

We have Youth for Christ ministry happening in 110 nations around the world. We have 3.85 million young people impacted by direct ministry around the world. There are 265,863 young people who have responded to the Gospel. There are 1,127 local ministry centres all across the globe that represent Youth for Christ in one way or another. Youth for Christ International has 59,436 full-time, part-time, and volunteer staff. We have partnered with 14,068 churches in our ministry. Our hope is to continue to grow into even more nations around the world, which will in turn help us to reach all of the nations around the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
