Youth for Christ practices “the fun way to serve God,” reaching the young people of Honduras through concerts, camps, workshops, sports days, social work, and leaders training.
Each year the Gospel of Jesus Christ is introduced to more than 6,000 young people.
Youth for Christ commenced with a Leader’s Training Camp in 2011 which included 40 leaders from different cities and different churches. The last day they motivated the young people to form their own clubs and camps, offering support when they needed it.
In 2010, Youth for Christ had ten camps with youth living in high risk zones, from which 332 accepted Jesus as their Saviour.
Youth for Christ worked elbow to elbow with Carpenters Tools International and performed 34 concerts in six cities (Tegucigalpa, Copan, Paraiso, Cortes, San Nicolas, San Pedro Sula), taking the message of God to 5,868 young people. Thanks to CTI!
In 2009, Youth for Christ pioneered the 1st Central American camp of the year. The 2010 Camp was developed in the country of Guatemala. This year (2011) it will be held for the second time in Rancho Vida Camp in Honduras.
Youth for Christ volunteers in Honduras also do social work with the children in need of love, support, and prayer.
This year included a celebration of “Friends Day” with 36 children that are HIV positive, giving them a joyful time with live music, piñata, cakes, pizza, and a Christian magic show. Youth for Christ shared half of the business donations with Nueva Esperanza Home (Children and Family Honduras Institute).
In September 2010, Youth for Christ worked alongside Angelitos Mache team and prepared a joyful time, collecting donated goods for Nueva Esperanza Home’s children in great need.
In June 2010, Youth for Christ worked along with Project TeamWork (PTW) who constructed a playground for more than a 300 children of Santiago, Pimienta village. During seven days of construction, the rest of the team helped with Vacation Bible School for all the children.
In February 2011, Youth for Christ participated in an evangelistic campaign in one of the most risky areas of San Pedro Sula. JPC La Banda was the first to play that night; we also had two more bands and fireworks after sharing God’s World with more than 100 people attending.
Youth leader trainings are done four times a year during trips around the country to know more of God’s Creation.
