Youth for Christ Prince George aims to see the young people of Prince George and its surrounding communities discover their God-given value and potential. We do this by holistically supporting young people, caring for their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.
YFC is committed to impacting the youth of the Prince George Area. Through broad exposure to the message and discipling those who respond, leaders will surface who will help to shape Canada’s future.
The youth population contains tomorrow’s leaders. The pressure to conform and to compete is a victory for some and a life challenge for others. Youth for Christ recognizes the need to help train and equip young leaders with the values of Christ while demonstrating those values through the care of troubled and challenged teens. Our strategies reflect this balanced approach through the diversity of ministry in partnership with the Body of Christ.
Youth for Christ PG is part of the broader Youth for Christ family. YFC is an international, non-denominational Christian ministry. Youth for Christ Canada is structured as an association of Chapter ministries, each receiving their “charter” from the National Office of YFC Canada in Langley, BC. Each of the 31 Chapters has an independent Board of Directors and has achieved “charitable status” through the offices of the Canada Revenue Agency in Ottawa. Each Chapter is led by an Executive Director who is recruited and employed by the Chapter Board.
Chapter ministries are commissioned to reach the youth of their area through nationally approved strategies which conform to the international standards and philosophy of Youth for Christ International based in Englewood, Colorado.
Chapter ministries are encouraged to broaden their ministry influence through the development of Satellite ministries in communities within their sphere of influence. There are approximately 300 Ministry Centres in Canada under Chapter leadership.
The National Office of YFC Canada exists to serve the Chapter ministries through the development of a national vision and strategic plan as well as the provision of common services. The National Director is responsible to the National Board of Directors and gives leadership to the movement through the Executive Directors at the Chapter level.
