What is CFC Youth For Christ?
CFC youth is a ministry of Couples for Christ that is called to evangelize the youths of the world - to make other youths see that knowing the Lord does not happen to older people only, like their parents. Evangelization happens in the same youth context and environment. YFC provides a venue and opportunities which allow its members to be "what they want to be as long as they are Christians". The fun aspect of being a youth is not taken away from them by the program, but rather is enhanced because they know that they have the best friend of all in the person of Jesus Christ.
Who and How can I join CFC Youth For Christ?
The CFC Youth for Christ is for young adults who are Christians or Catholics. Anyone between the ages of 13 through 21 can join. The Lord imbued CFC Youth with a strong missionary spirit. You can join by attending a youth camp, or if there aren't any coming up soon, you can attend the monthly meetings.

-We in Youth For Christ believe...
-That God is calling everyone to a personal relationship with Him through His Son, Jesus Christ.
-That this call is not exclusive but shared with all sectors of society, regardless of age, colour, nationality, status, and beliefs in life.
-That the youth have a very special place in God`s heart, and that they in return have a very deep sense of love for God, and that a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is something they desire.
-That the youth have a vibrant, energetic, dynamic, and free-spirit nature. Rather than denying this nature and force the youth into a mold that stisfies our own perception of Christianity and holiness, we accept this nature, not curtailing it, but re-channeling, into an acitve expression and submission and participation to the plan of God.
-That the youth realize the need to make decisions in life; but they should also know that as they do, God should always be an inseperable part of these decisions; Knowing also that they are future leaders of the families and societies, we realize that this future depends on how they are molded today as God`s children.
-That the youth grow not only from what they recieve, but more through what they are able to share with others.
-That youth are responsible as long as they are given the appropriate amount of guidance.
