The Five Essentials


The Five Essentials are targets of faithfulness to be practiced at each YFC ministry site so that the Spirit of God may favor the ministry with fruitfulness and sustainability.

1. Widespread Prayer

     We deliberately engage lots of Christians to intercede on behalf of the ministry site.

2. Loving Relationships

     We consistently pursue lost kids & engage them in life-long relationships with Jesus.

  • Seeker Focused
  • Whole-person focus
  • Disciple-making

3. Faithful Bible Teaching

     We accurately handle Biblical truth, regularly coaching kids to apply it in their lives through competent preparation and relevant presentation.

4. Collaborative Community Strategy

     We intentionally work together with local churches, agencies and other partners to provide sustainable youth and family ministry.

5. Adults Who Empower

     We strategically develop leaders to reach young people from every people group:

  • Exemplify Godly lifestyles
  • Model cultural competence
  • Nurture indigenous leadership
