Tope is from a Muslim family; he is the 2nd of 5 children. He came in contact with Youth for Christ through a Bible Study where he got saved in 1993. What attracted him to YFC was its strong focus on the youth through carefully planned activities, events and methods that naturally appeal to young people. He served as a volunteer in 3 different centers and as a staff in the National Office. Today, he is a management consultant and he leads a team of 6 pastors in his local church in Abuja; the foundation of which was laid serving in YFC.
So also is Precious, a young lady who is currently part of YFC G21 club in Asaba. According to her, being part of Youth for Christ has taught her that life has its ups and downs, and that love covers multitude of offences. She is learning how to love her parents especially her Dad and she is indeed very grateful to God for this.
Youth for Christ Nigeria is part of a worldwide movement that reaches young people everywhere, working together with the local church and other like-minded partners toward raising lifelong followers of Jesus, who lead by their godliness in lifestyle, devotion to prayer and the word of God, passion for sharing the love of Christ and commitment to social involvement.
Since 1987, we have reached many young people in communities, churches, secondary schools and higher institutions of learning, with the gospel of JESUS through outreaches, club meetings, camps, hangouts, and various social involvement opportunities. Currently, we work in 12 communities in 8 States of the federation. Pioneering work is nevertheless ongoing in more states especially in the Northern part of the country.
Now, more than ever, Nigerian youths need the gospel, and must be groomed for leadership and excellence. Our future depends on the seeds we sow in their lives now.
Our Goal in the next 3 years is to strategically;
1. Reach over one million youths for Christ in Nigeria with the gospel.
2. Take over 3000 young people through a discipleship process.
3. Invest in not less than 5000 young people with life skills that will help them reach their highest potential thereby having their ability to be employable or to become employers of labour greatly enhanced.
4. Train and enhance the leadership capacity of over 1000 youths, so they can stand out as godly leaders in their schools, churches and their communities.
5. Establish and run 120 neighborhood and schools’ G21 Clubs across the country for the purpose of discipleship, social involvement and leadership development
6. Establish and equip at least one Youth Development and Resource Centre in 12 States and Abuja.
7. Mobilize at least 120 adults who will pray for young people and YFC across the country every week.
“Your giving is taking the gospel to the unreached, mobilizing missionaries, providing training and resources around the nation for young people to have the opportunity to be followers of Jesus.”
We will like you to partner with us through your prayers and your resources. If you give a minimum of 1000 naira (or 5 dollars) to us monthly, we will be enabled to reach even more young people in Nigeria.
