Our Story

Jesus shared the Gospel through story, so we share and listen to stories—to every story

YFC is a Christian movement, with over 140 chapters across the country.

YFC pursues young people who often feel overlooked, to build relationships at pivotal moments.

YFC partners with local church and like-minded organizations to reach young people.

We believe the Gospel comes to life in the overlap of God’s story, our story, and a young person's story.

Give Life to Your Story

Pivotal Moments

From starting at a new school to becoming a parent, from choosing a job or a college to moving for the first time or the 10th time, from experiencing loss or trauma to spending time in a juvenile institution —11-19 year olds face some of the most pivotal moments of their lives; moments that can shape their entire story.

Shaping Our Story

We know how a pivotal moment can shape a story, because we’ve been through them ourselves. We also know that young people experiencing pivotal moments often feel over-looked and under-served, walking through their story without someone in their corner.

Unwavering Commitment

Since 1944, we’ve had an unwavering commitment to meet 11-19 year olds in pivotal moments, and to introduce them to the hope of Christ. From holding rallies with Billy Graham in the 40’s, to entering campuses to reach students in the 60’s, to now empowering community leaders to build meaningful relationships with young people everywhere—it’s our aim to walk with young people through their story, and to be the friend and mentor that we’ve longed for ourselves.

Uncovering God’s Story of Hope

When we welcome God into a pivotal moment, we invite Him to uncover His story of Hope in our lives, and to give life to our story. He is the life in all of our stories
