West Central Ohio Youth for Christ ministers to the students in our community of Van Wert County. YFC is a non-denominational, community-based organization that strives to help teens realize they are not alone as they navigate their adolescent years.  Youth for Christ leaders desire to authentically connect with young people so they may understand how much God cares for them.

The money donated to West Central Ohio Youth for Christ will go towards programs like Campus Life Ministry and other programming needs. Campus Life ministry combines healthy relationships with creative programs to help young people make good choices, establish a solid foundation for life, and positively impact their schools. 

YFC cannot reach young people without the support of the community. To make a donation or learn more about YFC and how you can be involved, please visit their website at You can all visit the West Central Ohio Youth for Christ Facebook page.
