Youth for Christ horizontal logo Mid Valley Chapter

Mid-Valley Youth for Christ is a chapter within the national and global Youth for Christ movement that began in in 1944 with Billy Graham, hosting evangelistic rallies.  In the 1960’s Youth for Christ leaders began ministry on school campuses, and over time, began ministry in communities as well.  Today, there are over 130 Youth for Christ chapters spread across the country, partnering with local church and like-minded para-church ministries, all with the goal of building relationships that will result in authentic Christ-sharing opportunities with youth ranging 11-19 years of age.
