5 Essentials


Every ministry site established by Youth for Christ begins with the following five characteristics.  Not only do we begin with these five essentials but also they exist through everything we do.

Widespread Prayer
We deliberately engage lots of Christians to intercede on behalf of the ministry site.

Loving Relationships
We consistently pursue lost kids & engage them in life-long relationships with Jesus.

Faithful Bible Teaching
We accurately handle Biblical truth, regularly coaching kids to apply it in their lives

Collaborative Community Strategy
We intentionally work together with local churches, agencies and other partners to provide sustainable youth and family ministry.

Adults Who Empower
We strategically develop leaders to reach young people from every people group.
