Our Mission
  • To participate in the body of Christ in
    responsible evangelism of youth, presenting them
    with the person, work and teachings of Christ and
    discipling them into a local church.
  • This is the DNA of Youth for Christ
  • Our Mission guides us like the earths magnetic
    poles, showing us true north

18
Our Vision
  • As part of the body of Christ, to see that every
    young person in every people group in every
    nation has the opportunity to make an informed
    decision to be a follower of Jesus Christ and
    become part of a local church.
  • Our vision gives us a clear picture of our ideal
    future.
  • Without our Mission and Vision statements it
    would be easy to get pulled off course by
    diverting our time and resources to addressing
    good projects, that may not be Gods projects
    for us.

19
Our Strategic Focus
  • YFC reaches young people everywhere, working
    together with the local church and other
    likeminded partners to raise up lifelong
    followers of Jesus who lead by their godliness in
    lifestyle, devotion to the Word of God and
    prayer, passion for sharing the love of Christ
    and commitment to social involvement.
  • Our Strategic Focus helps us live out our Mission
    and Vision.
