Cambridge & District Youth for Christ exists to help local churches reach young people.
We have set ourselves the bold target of seeing 15% of young people in Cambridge and District living for Jesus by the year 2025. That means 50 churches releasing 1000 leaders to equip 3000 young people passionately pursuing Christ.
What is the Tipping Point?
In his popular book ‘Tipping Points’, Malcolm Gladwell suggests that if you can reach 15% of a people group, something shifts. It’s the pivotal moment at which a trend crosses a threshold and goes viral. Wouldn’t it be great if faith in Jesus spread like that to every young person?
What are we aiming for?
We have set ourselves the target of seeing 15% of young people passionately pursuing Jesus by the year 2025. We think that means at least 50 churches releasing 1000 leaders to influence 3000 young people as disciples of Christ.
How are we doing?
As we continue to work with churches in Cambridge and District, this counter is tracking the number of young people who have made sincere commitments to Jesus. We update it regularly as we work towards our goals.
What are we doing?
Cambridge & District Youth for Christ is committed to helping local churches make young disciples.
LimitlessCommunity enables local churches to extend the reach of their youth ministry. One participating leader described the 2 year programme as being so powerful it had transformed not only the youth work, but their whole church!
Catalyst places skilled YFC youth workers in local churches. One elder recently commented, ‘We used to be providing a service to young people, now we are deliberately making disciples’.
We also serve local churches with a range of Christian events for young people. At our last Fort Rocky weekend 26 young people made commitment to follow Jesus.
YFC also provides local churches with Bible teaching resources, youth leader training and mobilises prayer for young people.
