Meet Our Team:

  • Joel Fether

    "There are many reasons why I do what I do, but I can honestly say that feeling like I'm good at it is not one of them!  Working in this ministry constantly challenges me to depend on God. I fall short and fail a lot. I persist first and foremost because I feel God has called me to be a missionary to teens in Columbus. He has given me a great compassion and love for them. I am deeply burdened to reach as many of them as possible with the gospel message and to encourage them to follow Jesus with their lives."

  • Nicole Ramey

    "Initially, I got involved with Youth for Christ because God gave me a passion and hope to make a difference in the lives of teenagers who are struggling with their emotions, home life and future. I understand their difficulties because I felt confused and angry as a teenager. After a year of being committed to City Life, my heart fell in love with the students and our mission. I continue to pour my heart, life and energy into the students' lives because I've witnessed God transform the lives of so many students through our mission. I believe City Life is an avenue for teenagers to experience the love of Christ and find hope…and if I’m honest, I need them too!"
