Why Support YFC Denver

Posted on by Heidi Brunsting

This Saturday is our annual YFC Auction. With something for everyone, this event is a fun and rewarding affair. And not just because of the stuff. When you take part in the YFC Auction, you are also supporting the important work of Youth for Christ in the Denver area.

With a legacy of over sixty years of effective youth ministry in Denver, YFC Denver has differentiated itself by its multifaceted approach to meeting the needs of area youth. YFC staff and volunteers see the hope and potential in every young person.

YFC reaches them on campuses & in their world...
Youth for Christ’s Campus Life Ministries staff and adult volunteers provide a positive influence on school campuses and in communities around the Denver area.

Weekly meetings typically include games, events and lively discussions. They are a safe and friendly place to learn life skills, think through important issues and to develop quality relationships with peers and caring adults.

Campus life has found that shared experiences between a student and supportive, caring adults helps students wrestle with issues they face and pursue a balanced life mentally, physically, socially and spiritually.

YFC reaches them in jails & city neighborhoods...
Youth for Christ’s Juvenile Justice Ministries staff and over one hundred adult volunteers provide Chaplaincy programs, one-on-one appointments, Bible Studies, Church Services and Mentoring to the over 3700 incarcerated and newly released youth every year. Serving nine of the ten youth lock-up facilities in the Denver Area, JJM staff and volunteers provide a continuum of ministry to at-risk kids as they make their way through the system.

YFC provides a hope and a future for teen parents...
A brand new Parent Life (teen parents) ministry has begun. Under the direction of Jill Meyer, Parent Life reaches expectant and parenting teens and their children through intentional relationships with trained adults and community partnerships. Parent Life ministry empowers teen parents to make good choices and encourages them to further their education and move toward independent living and become life-long followers of Jesus Christ.

Thank you for your ongoing support of the ministry of YFC Denver. And we hope you will join us this Saturday from 9am-noon for the YFC Auction at the PACE Center in Parker (20000 Pikes Peak Ave, Parker, CO 80138).
