Our Ministries

Campus Life

Our Campus Life ministry combines healthy relationships with creative programs to help young people make good choices, establish a solid foundation for life, develop as lifelong followers of Jesus Christ and positively impact their schools.

How does Campus Life Work?

Campus Life staff and adult volunteers build relationships through the balanced practice of six relational ministry actions:

Contacting – going into the world of young people in order to initiate new relationships
Building Times – spending time in shared activities with young people in order to build new relationships and model Christ-like behavior (includes trips and events)
Appointments – meeting one on one to provide individual attention and focus on a young person’s specific need
Small Groups – a structured interactive meeting with 2-12 young people
Club – a weekly large group meeting of more than 25 students that’s high energy, safe, and friendly to any student, no matter where they are at in their faith journey
Core Team – Christian students who are committed to personal growth and influencing of the people around them for Christ
Trips – outings that give students a place to step away from everyday life and hear – maybe for the first time – about God’s love for them.

Juvenile Justice Ministry

JJM seeks to engage young people as they are met in a variety of youth-serving institutions.

How does JJM Work?

BALANCED PROGRAMMING – Using outreach, bible study, small group programming, and personal mentoring to meet the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual needs in a young person’s life.
FREQUENT CONNECTIONS – Entering into a youth’s world to build healthy relationships and model Christ-like behavior on a frequent and ongoing basis.
ONE-ON-ONE CONTACTS – Meeting individually with a young person to provide personal attention and focus on specific needs.
AFTERCARE – Creating systems and structures for sustained relationships to help teens successfully re-enter their communities.

YFC Core® is teams of Christian students with adult coaches who together, actively love in a way that naturally invites friends to follow Christ with them. YFC Core® is about relational evangelism and is committed to living and coaching 3Story®. Teams of students meet weekly with adult coaches to Share, Pray and Discover how God is challenging them to take risks and invite their lost friends to naturally follow Jesus with them.

YFC Core® Mission

YFC Core® is an effective way to mobilize students and adults to reach every teenager at a high school or middle school. We each have a limited sphere of influence in our lives for deep 3Story® relationships. YFC Core® provides an ideal platform for those adults with a heart, skill and gifts of mobilizing and discipling others into fruitful ministry. Some schools are closed to Youth For Christ adult staff. No school is closed to students. Students have existing relationships with their lost peers. YFC Core equips them to make the most of what God is already doing in those relationships.
