Youth For Christ New York City

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!" -- 2 Corinthians 5:17

YFC reaches young people everywhere, working together with the local church and other like-minded partners to raise up lifelong followers of Jesus who lead by their godliness in lifestyle, devotion to prayer and the Word of God, passion for sharing the love of Christ and commitment to social involvement.

Every day at thousands of community centers, high schools, middle schools, juvenile institutions, coffee shops, and local hangouts, YFC staff and volunteers meet with young people who need Jesus. We are rural and urban and we are always about the message of Jesus.

History

In 1944 Billy Graham and Torrey Johnson held the first Youth For Christ rally.  The ministry of YFC spread across the US.  The founding motto of YFC is as true to today as it was when it was coined "Anchored to the Rock and geared to the times." YFC has never veered from its commitment to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to lost and hurting young people.

Vision

Our vision is to have a noticeable spiritual impact on NYC by engaging young people in the life long journey of following Jesus Christ.
