For Local Churches

Partner with Us

Our Vision

As part of the body of Christ, Youth for Christ wants to see the young people from every people group, in every place, have an opportunity to make an informed decision to become a follower of Jesus Christ and get involved in a local church.

Why Partner

Do you want to make a lasting impact in the lives of young people? Do you want to engage them with the truth of God's Word and help them grow into lifelong followers of Christ?

Central Ohio Youth for Christ is passionate about this calling. We meet 11-19 year olds during their most vulnerable moments and help them feel seen, heard and valued. We seek to cultivate great moments of connection and community, and help them uncover God's story of hope in their lives. It can be difficult. It is often heartbreaking. But it is also the most rewarding work we do.

Does this sound like your church? We invite your church to join us in this journey.

How Can Your Church Serve Teens?

We have a variety of ways to serve the teens that God has brought to us including:

As a group, do a one-time service project at one of our facilities
Provide a meal for a Club meeting
As an individual, or as a group, help mentor teens during the day or after school
Host a regular prayer meeting
Have a table at YFC's annual fundraising luncheon
Teach a class for our after-school program
Write notes of encouragement for teens in juvenile detention centers

Here are two publications to help describe our various opportunities for involvement:

How Your Church Will Benefit

As a church partner, your congregation has access to YFC's unique and insightful training on relevant topics for serving teens and adults, as well as our legacy coaching services.

But more importantly, as you relationally invest in the teens, you'll see firsthand God's transforming power in the lives of young people. People will know without a doubt that the Good News of Jesus Christ actually is good news for teens who are marginalized and largely overlooked by society. Your faith will be energized, and you'll experience the overwhelming excitement of saying yes to God.

Let's Talk

We'd love to meet with you and discuss how your congregation can redemptively impact young people for the Kingdom. You can schedule a meeting with us below, or contact Ministry Director Bryan Brookes ( for more information.
