When I was a teenager back in the '60's, I attended Youth for Christ at the World War Memorial in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. We had the privilege of hearing some of the early pillars of the faith God used to start YFC. It was so encouraging to see and meet kids from all over Indiana who were willing to admit they were Christians.

When our oldest daughter was in Jr High School, our local YFC leader was a great guy named Bill Eakin, and he had a profound impact on her by taking a personal interest in her and comforting her and speaking into her life at YFC camp! We knew Bill from church, and we told our daughter to look him up, but she avoided him all week...until she injured her shoulder blade and he drove her to the hospital! Over the years, he continued to show her Jesus. We hear he is still touching the lives of young people, in his 80's!

Today, we have friends who serve with YFCI here and in other parts of the world. What a blessing that YFC has continued it's mission over the decades!

Youth for Christ International is more than just a youth group. It provides a culture of a family where young people can express their potential by reaching other young people. I have benefited quite much more by being a part of this movement and appreciate them for the opportunity given me. I strongly recommend that more young people get involved.

I regularly went with friends to YFC when I was young. Sound advice regarding life choices but wrapped in very palatable packages made it fun and ultimately worthwhile. It was a good place to hang out with friends as the environment was safe and supportive. All credit to the long suffering and generous personnel who give their time to run these programmes then and nowadays, too.

I support Youth for Christ International Ministries because of the impact it has had on my life as a teen and and an adult. I got involved in it when I was about 14 years old. The staff and volunteers I met throughout my high school years were great! They created a fun and safe environment where I could be myself, but also grow and learn. Later I had a chance to "give back" to this great organization by volunteereing as a summer camp counselor and working as a group leader for the school year.

I support Youth for Christ because it is reaching young people that other organizations are not reaching; also they go out of their way to plug these young people into a local church that can help them stay on the right path and help them grow.

I joined Youth for Christ as a young man of 18yrs old 29 years ago, it was awesome, I have made life long friends, seen God work in peoples lives and certainly had him work in mine. I have a great friend who still works for this wonderful organisation and regularly reports on the work that still continues and the life changing experiences that all part of what YFC is about and why it still runs. Good work YFC

I started with youth for Christ in 2006 in sierra Leone working with high school and church kids. this venture proved very tremendous as vital relationships were established not only with kids but with teachers, pastors and parents as well. leaders were raised in these institutions and most of the young people encountered then are now serving the Lord in various vocations of life. investing in one life brings profit not only to the individual but to the nation as a whole
