YFC Core

About

 
YFC Core is teams of Christian students with adult coaches who together, actively love in a way that naturally invites friends to follow Christ with them. YFC Core is about relational evangelism and is committed to living and coaching 3Story®. Teams of students meet weekly with adult coaches to Share, Pray and Discover how God is challenging them to take risks and invite their lost friends to naturally follow Jesus with them.

 YFC Core Mission

YFC Core is an effective way to mobilize students and adults to reach every teenager at a high school or middle school. We each have a limited sphere of influence in our lives for deep 3Story® relationships. YFC Core® provides an ideal platform for those adults with a heart, skill and gifts of mobilizing and discipling others into fruitful ministry. Some schools are closed to Youth for Christ adult staff. No school is closed to students. Students have existing relationships with their lost peers. YFC Core equips them to make the most of what God is already doing in those relationships.

History

The YFC Core® core ministry model has likely been developing since Youth for Christ’s inception. Whether it be Rallies, Bible Clubs, Campus Life Student Leaders or DCLA, friends reaching friends for Christ is in our DNA. With a desire for “more workers” and equipping Christian students to reach their peers,  Student Led Ministry models grew inside and outside the YFC movement. YFC called together our representatives with this passion from across the country to intentionally seek the Lord on how YFC could concentrate recourses on serving these students. These models were refined to abiding, networking with local churches and having teams of students with adult coaches who together, actively love in a way that naturally invites friends to follow Christ with them.
