Who are we?

Portland Youth for Christ exists to help today's young people get what they really need. Our mission and vision is to connect them with God, society, and themsleves in a healthy way. We do that by helping them to lead a balanced life, a life that is based upon the word of God.

The history of Youth for Christ reveals a commitment to reaching out to every young person, in every people group, in every nation giving them the opportunity to make an informed decision regarding the message of Christ and becoming a part of a local church. 

Youth for Christ encourages young people to make a difference in their world beginning with their families and friends. Highly qualified and committed staff and volunteers fully committed to Christ, mentor and model lives devoted to serving God and their fellow man. They take seriously Jesus' command to love the Lord their God with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love their neighbor as themselves. Their objective is to serve and mentor the whole child; body, mind, and spirit. The goal is to see every student through the eyes of Christ - A life that is transformed.
