We believe that, in Honduras, it is vital that there is an organization whose mission, purpose, and strategy is focused on reaching the youth that do not know about Jesus. Here is the reason for the existence of YFC Honduras. Youth for Christ is not just another organization aimed at young people and current believers. Youth for Christ is a movement of men, women, and young people who are dedicated to sharing the gospel with youth who do not know Christ, wherever they are found.
Although 92% of the population of Honduras professes to believe in God, and many churches are full of young people, we find ourselves with high crime and drug addiction rates in the youth of the country. For this reason we try to be an alternative that promotes values in young people. YFC Honduras wishes to share its many years of experience, its ideas, programs, and resources for youth ministry and council to see a solid ministry effective in evangelism.
Our volunteers are a very important part in our ministry. Many of them sacrifice their time to serve God and people in any activity that we do. Although they do not receive a salary for what they do, they are always willing to serve and do everything with love and passion knowing that their reward comes of God.
Mauricio Erazo: “Absolutely everything what we do is with the goal of letting people know about God’s love and salvation.”
Orlando A. Garcia: “I’ve served in YFC for 3 years and it’s been a great experience building God’s kingdom in a creative way. For many years my desire was to serve God through Youth ministry and YFC was the answer to my prayers.”
Elmer Eduardo Ramos: “I have served in YFC Honduras since 2016. I think God has sent us to spread the gospel to every people in the world.”
Brenda Reyes: “I have served in YFC Honduras for 14 years, I believe God called me to serve and show love, freedom, and hope. My deep desire is that all youth discover their value in God, and their original design.”
Lena Kvigne: “I have been a missionary intern with JPC for six months. My time with JPC first started in 2014 where I was part of a music ministry from The States who partnered with JPC. I spent three weeks traveling with my ministry alongside JPC Honduras, I did that another two times before I decided to come and work with JPC full time. I was drawn to JPC Honduras because they seemed to have a way of sharing the love of God in fun and exciting ways. Not only that but they seemed to use well, each of the gifts and talents of their volunteers for the glory of God and to make His name known.”
Alejandro Martinez: “I have served 4 years as a volunteer and have been part of the staff for four months managing social media and visual art. What inspires me to be part of YFC Honduras is to share God’s love with others and let others know the value of it.”
It is our project for excellence and in which we try to make a deep impression in life of young people ages 16-18, through a fun and memorable experience. Staying a weekend in our mountain camp, we hold various challenges as well as sexual prevention and pure values talks. At the end of the camp, YFC staff and volunteers try to challenge our new friends to make positive and pure decisions in life and commit to living for Christ.
