Youth For Christ

Reaching young people in Southern Hills

Our Focus

Introducing young people to Jesus at pivotal moments

YFC is a movement that reaches young people everywhere with the hope of Christ. We work 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 the Word of God and prayer, passion for sharing the love of Christ, and commitment to social involvement.

32 Years and counting Serving Southern Hills

Our pursuit: relational ministry rooted in Christ’s truth. 
His truth about community, empathy, and kingdom-inspired diversity guides our
 work and shapes our communities.

In 1990 Southern Hills YFC was born with Galen Dolby leading from 1990-1996. After exciting growth, leadership transitioned to Jennie Hession who served as Executive Director of SHYFC from 1996 to 2018. In 2019, David A Schunk was named Executive Director after ten years as a Campus Life Director.

    Our work exists in the overlap of God’s story, our story and the story of a young person. At the core of all our ministries and chapters, we meet kids at pivotal moments to build lasting relationships in which God can work.

    Featured Story

    Building Authentic Relationships

    For YFC, the fragmented school year failed to slow down its mission of connecting with local young people. YFC was active throughout the summer, holding movie nights, summer camps, and other youth events. These events, while great for having fun and meeting local youth, have a more eternal purpose. Each creating doorways for an authentic Christ-sharing relationship.

    Our Response to Covid

    Socially distant, spiritually together.

    There's no way around it, the ongoing pandemic has continued to shift ministry and serving the next generation in a variety of ways. Throughout this time we have continued to push God's kingdom further in creative ways. From virtual group meetings to outdoor events, we are committed to ministering to young people safely and intentionally.
