The fruit of partnership: Claudia’s story 

Each year we send mission teams to partner with local Christian communities – to see more youth living for Christ. For Claudia, a Christian mother of four, this partnership has had significant impact for both herself and her community.

She shares, “Youth for Christ helped ignite my passion for young people…. something I never knew even existed in my spirit.”

Claudia lives in Exmouth, an isolated country town with a population of around 2400 people that we have been regularly connecting with through our North West Trips.

“I remember being so thankful that this group of Christian young people had made themselves available to come and visit our town. In the school, they made authentic connections with staff and students alike and the content of the presentations radiated Christ’s love.

“Through, their consistent visits to the school and town the connection between our churches has improved, especially in the combined effort to reach the young people in our community and also in connecting Christian young people with each other.

“The school now sees our local churches as a dependable connection and partner – a group of people who are genuinely interested in the care, value and welfare of every young person.”

Claudia is now working with YFC to help connect mission teams to more communities across the Northwest of WA.

At it’s heart YFC is simply a movement of people mobilising resources in their community for the common cause of seeing youth living for Christ. Thanks for being part of this movement with us and for helping impact communities, like Claudia’s, with His love.
