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.

YFC has been in Highlands County since 1998.  We are actively involved in every middle and high school in the county.  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.  YFC Highlands County is blessed to be in all of the local schools, and we ask that at the very least you pray for this to continue!

Since 1944, Youth for Christ has had a distinctive history of youth evangelism. In the early 1940s, during World War II, many young men, mostly ministers and evangelists, were holding large rallies in Canada, England and the United States. YFC quickly organized into a national movement. Billy Graham became YFC's first full-time staff member. 

Since the 90s, YFC continues to develop effective relational ministry with different types of unchurched youth. Parent Life mentors and equips young mothers and fathers with parenting skills as well as the love of Jesus Christ. City Life reaches out to the millions of young people in our major urban communities, partnering with the church and other organizations. YFC Core helps school-based adults lead teams of Christian students to reach out to their lost friends.  DeafTeen Quest ministers to the unique needs of hearing-impared teens. And the theme of the YFC Camp program is “Where Everything Changes", intentionally targeting lost teens through the proclamation and the demonstration of the gospel message in an outdoor experience.

Throughout YFC's history there has been an unwavering commitment to youth evangelism and biblical Christianity. One of YFC's slogans over the past fifty years has been "Anchored to the Rock, Geared to the Times.”  YFC strives to both demonstrate and communicate this message of hope, grace and love in a variety of different cultural settings, and always pursuing teens in personal relationships.  Your prayers and financial support continue to help change the lives of young people… one at a time.  We refer to this pursuit as a 3Story lifestyle, and offer resources and training opportunities to take a “deeper dive” in this way of life.
