Our Mission

Most students in Louisville go to school with one group of friends, go home and hang with another, and play sports still with a different set of students.  This constant movement results in the lack of community and the deep relationships students need and desire.  Louisville Youth for Christ recognizes that in order to make a significant impact into student’s lives we must engage them on the Campus, in the Community, and with the Church.  Without this three-fold connection, students are left without the needed support for their families and lives.  Simply, Greater Louisville's Youth for Christ seeks to engage students where they are.

Our Methods

Youth for Christ reaches young people everywhere, working together with local church Partners, Ministry Volunteers and other non-profits to raise up lifelong followers of Jesus who lead by their godliness in lifestyle, devotion to the Word of God and prayer, passion for sharing the love of Christ.  We are committed to social involvement based on a common Statement of Faith.  We accomplish this mission by establishing Ministry Sites led by a network of Ministry Site Champions based on the 5 Essentials of Ministry and 3 Story Relationships© using different YFC Ministry Models Approach.

"Greater Louisville YFC is emerging as a remarkable innovator on the national scene, by developing “More leaders… Better leaders… in Christ-sharing relationships with lost and hurting young people.” Greater Louisville YFC is embracing church and community partnerships for transformation of individuals and neighborhoods on many levels: spiritually, relationally, physically, educationally, and socially."
