Our Mission

YFC reaches young people everywhere, working together with the local church and other like-minded partners to raise up 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.

Tailored to reach youth in urban, suburban, and rural settings. YFC/USA is a chartered program of Youth for Christ International. Over 1,861 paid staff members and 16,571 volunteers serve in over 100 countries around the world. In addition, well over 100 YFC staff members from the U.S. have ministry assignments with YFC programs in other nations.

The North Iowa Chapter was started in Mason City in 1987, and serves 5th-12th grade students from a ten county region.  YFC combines healthy relationships with creative programs to help young people make good choices, establish a solid foundation for life, and positively impact their peers. Ultimately, YFC seeks to engage these young people wherever they are found as lifelong followers of Jesus Christ.
