Welcome and thank you for visiting our Youth For Christ site!  My desire is the website conveys to you information regarding ministries, events, activities, and opportunities to serve while also highlighting our mission.  In the event you want to partner with us in sharing the hope, love, and gospel of Jesus Christ to teens throuhgout Grand Forks and surrounding communities, you can do so on this site as well.  

Our ministry continues to impact the Grand Forks area and our volunteers are developing and strengthening relationships that will be have an eternal significance.  Thank you to the many people who have supported us with your gifts, talents, and time this year.  

Since April 2016, we are elbows deep in the space where teens in tough situations find themselves; the Juvenile Detention Center.  We now have the capacity to spend up to six hours a day, six days a week instructing them in life skills, playing games, talking, listening, tutoring, and exercising with them.  We are still seeking volunteers who would like to make a difference in their lives and are willing to have their own life-changing experience.  Believe me, it is well worth the time and effort.

Additionally, we created a high school Campus Life club for students in Central, Community, East Grand Forks, Homeschool, Red River, and Thompson.  This takes place on Monday evenings at the old Ember Coffee Shop 6:15 - 7:30 pm.  We believe this club is a great opportunity for us to hang out, share life and be in continual dialogue with students on issues, challenges, and truth.     

After school on Tuesday and Thursday 3:45pm - 5:00pm, you'll find YFC volunteers and staff engaging in the lives of 11-13 year olds in our local middle schools.  This is a high-energy, fun, and impactful time where students are introduced to Jesus and how that impacts their daily lives.  

If you or someone you know would like to come to a club or join us in an event/activity, please contact me.  If you would like to learn more about volunteer opportunities please click on the "Get involved" tab and provide us with your contact information so we can get in touch with you.
