The Youth For Christ movement began in the USA and in Canada in 1944. With Billy Graham as its first full-time worker, “YFC” spread like wildfire attracting large crowds to Saturday night rallies. The “Rallies”, once a trademark of Youth For Christ, have now emerged into a full-orbed program tailored to meet the needs and concerns of Canadian youth. Since its founding, Youth For Christ has become a worldwide movement active in more than 127 countries.
On a local level, Kawartha Youth For Christ / Youth Unlimited currently serves youth and families in 8 different communities: Bancroft, Bobcaygeon, Fenelon Falls, Haliburton Highlands/Minden, Lakefield, Lindsay and Peterborough. We have been serving youth in the Greater Kawartha Region since 1978 and are now in our 42nd year of ministry. Our head office is located in downtown Peterborough.
Kawartha Youth For Christ / Youth Unlimited is a chartered member of Youth For Christ Canada, an international, non-denominational Christian ministry who, for over 75 years, has passionately engaged young people to live their full life potential as designed by God.
Motivated by our faith, we believe that transformed youth have the opportunity to transform communities, our country and the world.
“We see the hope and potential in every young person we meet and reach
through community specific programs.”
At KYFC our mission is to see every young person living fully in Christ.
What We Do
At KYFC we engage and equip youth to know and follow Jesus.
How Do We Do This?
We do this by:
Caring for the whole person;
Sharing the life changing message of Jesus Christ; and
Daring them to know and follow Jesus.
CARE. SHARE. DARE.
