We endeavor to bring the life-changing message of Jesus to every Missoula area teen's story. We value relational ministry that is Christ centered. We value meeting kids where they are, not where we expect them to be. We value partnerships. We value investing in youth through long term relationshpi with intentional mentoring. We value Christian community in everything we do.

We are Missoula Youth for Christ.

It was a slight exchange, but one that speaks volumes to the type of ministry we are hoping and praying to duplicate in our community. It's not very often that an 18 year old Campus Life student financially supports the ministry. When Logan first engaged in supporting YFC he simply said, "People have made a difference in my life; I want to make a difference for others".

If I were to summarize Youth for Christ, this would be the story I would use. Chapter 1: A young man starts coming to YFC events in middle school. Chapter 2: After hearing the message several times he commits his life to Christ on a surfing trip in LA. Chapter 3: Our staff disciple and mentor him through some tough high school years, teaching him to apply the Word of God in his life. Chapter 4: He then serves on a short term mission trip responding to God calling him. Chapter 5: He now attends and serves in a local church, giving to support missions. Wow. The story is not complete, but already a best seller.

This is a story of the life-changing message of Jesus.

Daily we have the opportunity to be story-changers in the lives of kids. As we boldly go into their worlds and lives, I invite you to be bold with us. Venture with us to bring life to Missoula teens' stories.

Better together.

In Christ alone,
