YFC engages young people in authentic Christ-sharing relationships so that 11-19-year-olds can experience the love of Christ.  We are committed to pursuing teenagers in their world and will consistently strive to develop safe, bridge-building relationships with middle school and high school students and we do whatever it takes to make that happen. As students come to know the hope and love that God has to offer, our belief is that a teenager’s life will be impacted eternally.

City Life is an effective ministry model to transform the lives of urban youth, their families and the communities that they live in. The City Life model provides a strategic way to pursue every young person in the Ft. Wayne urban community. Our City Life Center, located across the street from Southside High School, offers all types of programs for urban middle school and high school students. Check out the City Life page for details.


JJM seeks to engage young people as they are met in a variety of youth-serving institutions (detention centers, probation, correctional facilities, group homes, residential treatment centers and emergency shelters).  These valued relationships are sustained through ongoing involvement as they reenter their communities. Our Juvenile Justice Ministry (JJM) staff are regularly in the detention facilities, connecting with students, in hopes of making a difference in their lives. Check out JJM.
