At YFC Northern Indiana, it's our aim to reach students who are lost - those desiring to feel known and in desperate need of the restorative love of Christ. This aim is unique in each community we serve. We encourage and welcome individuals and organizations to join with us in this crucial mission; our young people need all of us.

Every day at high schools, middle schools, community centers, juvenile institutions, coffee shops and local hangouts, YFC staff and volunteers meet with young people who need Jesus so they know they are not alone. We are rural and urban and we are always about the message of Jesus.

Youth for Christ of Northern Indiana is committed to pursuing teenagers in their world, sharing the hope of Christ. In this effort, YFC will consistently strive to develop safe, bridge-building relationships with young people through our programs so they would believe someone is for them, and believes in them. As students come to know Christ, through loving adults, our belief is their lives will be forever changed.

Youth for Christ of Northern Indiana is part of a national movement to reach young people where they are, and YFC USA is part of a global movement through YFC International. We are knit together with our common mission, vision, statement of faith and passion to reach young people.
