May 2021- Chapter Update

June 24, 2022


Sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things; his right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him.” -Psalm 98:1



God has been so gracious this year, allowing the ministry of YFC to grow, not only in size but impact. Here is a snapshot of the ministry God accomplished this year through YFC:


Touchpoints with students


Students on roster


Students in Authentic Christ-Sharing Relationships


Occasions where the Gospel was shared


Students in Discipleship Relationships


Students in Local Fellowship


Students who accepted Christ for the Frist Time

In addition, we are blessed to announce that we were able to add a new ministry model, Deaf Teen Quest, a ministry to Deaf and Hard of Hearing teens. We are so excited to reach this very marginalized people group.

A Growing Audience

We had the opportunity to share our virtual “Be the Story” event with 1000+ partners, who were encouraged by the stories of our students. In addition, we multiplied our outreach in exciting ways by launching a Social Media team. This team posts new content each day that reaches partners all around the world!

Going to Camp!

We are so excited to announce that our generous partners and friends at Parma Heights Baptist Church have offered to host our students for a 4-Day Summer Camp experience. This Camp experience will give us the opportunity to share the Gospel in an immersive experience, while providing food, fun, and friends. You can become a part of this dynamic experience by contributing to our camp scholarship fund. Your enclosed contribution could be the first step in a student’s life, leading them to an everlasting relationship with Christ.
