Our History and Spread

Youth for Christ took off as a spontaneous move of God in the 40’s, originating from Chicago, USA. As at today, YFC is carrying out ministry activities in 120 nations of the world, under the leadership of Youth for Christ International. Each National program is self-governing, but operates through charter granted by YFCI. Thus, there is a culture of interdependence within the Youth for Christ family worldwide. Our first full-time staff in YFC was Late Dr. Billy Graham.

In Nigeria, Youth for Christ as presently constituted, took off in 1987 in Akure, Ondo State. As at now, we have operated in more than 15 communities and cities in these states across the nation; Ondo, Ogun, Oyo, Ekiti, Delta, Imo, Akwa-Ibom, Lagos, Kaduna, Plateau, Nasarawa, Niger, Taraba, Bauchi, and FCT. We are nevertheless currently working effectively in the following states: Ondo, Lagos, Delta, Niger, Nasarawa, Taraba and the FCT. Reviving of old centers and pioneering of new ones are also ongoing in all the geopolitical zones of the country.

At Youth For Christ, we wholeheartedly embrace the “and” of Mark 10:45. Jesus came to serve and to deliver the message of transformation. He came to embrace and to liberate. We look to Him as we carry out that “and” — the call to act, with an eternal perspective.
