How we help churches

In children, teenagers and youth ministry

We motivate churches to start and develop youth ministry

We are constantly looking for new ideas for youth ministry or create them focusing on evangelism and discipleship. We encourage churches and church leaders to see the needs of young people and to work with children, adolescents and young people using effective methods based on Biblical principles.

We train church leaders

Realizing that effective ministry is being done by committed faithful and devoted ministers, we long to help youth ministers to grow in leadership skills and correct principles of team work. To do this, we organize training conferences, leadership schools and other projects of the kind. We invite leadership teams of different types of youth ministry to learn more about leadership and teamwork.

We help churches develop effective evangelization skills

Evangelism is an important priority in youth ministry since many young people need Jesus and one of the main tasks of the Church is to bring the Good News to the unsaved. A team of YFC specialists offers various methods of introducing Jesus to young generation: Christian teen & youth clubs, day care centers for children from disadvantaged backgrounds, different kinds of camps and many others.

We support and encourage youth ministers

One of the problems of many modern ministries is its short term because its leaders are easily “burnt out”. To prevent that our task is to support the ministers, to pray for them, to encourage them in as many ways as we can. We use assorted methods to abet them to serve long term ministry: inspiration, financial/physical assistance, visits, promotion of their ministry on yfc website, forums, personal meetings, correspondence etc.

We equip with resources

YFC regularly updates database of the best resources for different types of ministries and provides churches with it. It is important to equip leaders with quality materials and ideas so that youth ministers would not only know HOW to carry on the ministry, but also WHAT to fill it with. We produce our materials for all countries of Eastern Europe so all our resources are in Russian. You may find it on RESOURCES page.
