Jesus shared the Gospel through story, so we share and listen to stories—to every story
Since 1958, staff and volunteers have met with teens from area schools and neighborhoods in Hancock, Allen, and Putnam Counties. Through YFC, generations of teens have been impacted through loving Christ sharing relationships. We empower leaders to build authentic relationships with young people—to walk with them and be a friend that shares the message of hope that only comes through Jesus Christ. As teens say “Yes” to Jesus, our vision is to see them rooted in the Church and developing into the next generation of Christ sharing leaders.
