Who We Are

Lane County Youth For Christ has been reaching out to young people in the Eugene/Springfield area and beyond since 1947. Our Campus Life staff is at work on over 20 schools in Lane County. We also minister to at-risk youth through our Juvenile Justice Ministry program and serve teen parents in the area through our Parent Life program. We are dedicated to entering the messy lives of the youth in our county and showing them hope and love through Jesus Christ.

Our Mission

Youth For Christ reaches young people everywhere, working together 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 prayer and the Word of God, passion for sharing the love of Christ and commitment to social involvement.

The Five Essentials

Widespread Prayer - We deliberately engage lots of Christians to intercede on behalf of the ministry site.
Loving Relationships - We consistently pursue lost kids & engage them in life-long relationships with Jesus.
Faithful Bible Teaching - We accurately handle Biblical truth, regularly coaching kids to apply it in their lives
Collaborative Community Strategy - We intentionally work together with local churches, agencies and other partners to provide sustainable youth and family ministry.
Adults Who Empower - We strategically develop leaders to reach young people from every people group.
