Volunteer with COYFC

Are You Ready to Impact Unchurched Teens?

More than 1,000 teens engage with a YFC ministry during the course of a year. We simply cannot impact so many young people without the critical support of committed volunteers.

Many opportunities exist to serve these teens throughout Central Ohio, especially in the relational, program and support areas. Scroll down to learn more about these. You can also read through our various ministry outreaches to get an idea of where you would like to invest your time and talents.

If you are ready to start the process, you can begin filling out the application and Theology Survey below.

If you would like more information, contact volunteer@coyfc.org.
