CFC Youth for Christ (YFC) aims to evangelize youth from ages thirteen (13) to twenty-one (21). The ministry molds a generation of young, passionate, convicted and Christ-centered young people, reaching out to them in every community, campus and school. YFC develops strategies in evangelization and establishes programs relevant to the changing times, meant to deepen the youth’s relationship with the bigger church.
YFC is composed of programs that aim to cater to all areas where the youth is present. The five (5) main programs are as follows:
A. Community-Based Program
The YFC Community based program works on spreading the good news to the youth in dioceses and parishes. It works closely with the parish structure that it is in, participating in the various activities of the parish. As this program works in spreading God’s message to the whole community, it acknowledges that there are other organizations within the same community that are working towards the same purpose.
B. High School-Based Program
YFC High School Based (YFC HSB) Program aims to evangelize the youth in the High School level. YFC believes that there is a need to evangelize the young from the High Schools because it is in this stage of their lives where their formative foundations are crucial. This time allows them to lay the foundation of the people they hope to become.
C. Campus-Based Program
YFC Campus-Based is the evangelization program based within College or University level campuses. YFC Campus-Based seeks to provide a point of conversion/ re-conversion where a young person can grow as man or woman of God and be encouraged to take responsibility and gain leadership as they lead others to God as well. As such, this program accepts the vibrancy, energy, dynamism and free-spirit of the youth, and strives to re-channel this youthful spirit for use in the mission of building God’s kingdom in their homes and campuses.
D. TORCH Program
TORCH (Towards Renewal in Christ) is the support program of YFC and serves as an identity membership of the children of the CFC Mission Core Group members. These children are being prepared and motivated to share the torch of leadership that lighted the path of their parents to continue the CFC mission, as it is handed down from their parent’s generation to theirs.
E. YCOM Program
YFC Communications or YCOM is the official communications arm of Youth for Christ. Its task is to assist the ministry in spreading God’s word to its members and to the world, and proclaim God’s greatness in a creative and powerful way.
