Youth for Christ New Zealand - Reaching the youth of New Zealand with the Gospel of Jesus Christ




YFC NZ  will focus on 5 key strategies in the YFC NZ ministry. These will be

Evangelism - Discipleship - Leadership training - Mission teams - Leadership interns

During 2016, YFC NZ concentrated on Evangelism and Discipleship. It is important to have the foundation of 'disciple making' with new followers of Christ established, for when other ministry activities commence.

During 2017 YFC NZ is concentrating on Leadership Development, while maintaining momentum on Evangelism and Discipleship as a core task on new leaders. Already Youth workers have gone through some training and been appointed.

The next Leadership Information and Training session will take place in September 2017. If you think the Lord is leading you to be involved in YFC why not email at contact@yfc.org.nz  

Future strategies include

  • Leadership training for ministry, possibly full-time, based in Auckland.
  • Short term mission teams to South Pacific Island nations, and within New Zealand.
  • Youth Leadership internships to New Zealand Church Youth ministry, and to South Pacific YFC ministries. YFC is Pro-Church, not Para-Church
  • Rallies/ Youth Events once a term with a clear focus on evangelism.
  • Camps with a clear intent to train and grow in Christian living, and making Disciple makers
  • International Kingdom Youth Festival, with a multi-cultural input, especially from our South Pacific Island YFC partners.

Note: YFC NZ, in the preliminary stages of ministry, will not be creating localized youth programs or clubs. It will concentrate on supporting churches in their youth activities, in the areas of evangelism, disciple making and leadership training strategies.
