Our Ministries

Youth for Christ accomplishes its mission with these local ministry programs. Currently, we have ministries and programs serving Sacramento, Placer, Yolo, Nevada, and El Dorado Counties.

  • Campus Life
    Campus Life is a relational program that meets weekly with over 250 high school students on campuses across the region. Staff lead discussions and sponsor activities that communicate character, confidence, responsibility and faith.

  • Campus Life M
    Campus Life M, the middle school version of Campus Life, meets on campuses weekly with over 125 middle school students. It also encourages and trains Christian students to be leaders, planning and running meetings on their own campuses.

  • City Life Collings Teen Center
    Embrace. Engage. Empower. That's what we do at the Collings Teen Center in West Sacramento. Teenagers are provided with a fun and safe environment after school where computers, video games, pool tables, air hockey and other recreational activities are available free of charge. Most importantly, the caring staff at the center are healthy, adult role models who invest in their lives.

  • City Life Crossover Youth Basketball
    Crossover has grown from a small spring league to a multi-faceted program that reaches hundreds of at-risk youth each year. Through a spring "everybody plays" league, traveling AAU teams and an after-school life-skills program, Crossover impacts youth through the involvement of caring, consistent, healthy adult role models.

  • City Life Sayonara Center
    City Life focuses on reaching at-risk children and teens through after-school centers and inner-city outreaches. In Citrus Heights, students have a safe place to go after school where they can get help with homework, a healthy snack, and participate in educational and recreational activities. The ultimate goal of City Life is to raise up indigenous leaders in these communities who will affect long term change.

  • Juvenile Justice Ministry

    JJM seeks to engage young people as they are met in a variety of youth-serving detention centers, correctional facilities and on probation. These relationships are sustained through ongoing involvement as they re-enter their communities.

  • Point Break Workshop
    Point Break creates an atmosphere of honest communication in which students and faculty work together. Participants move through a variety of high-energy games, small group discussions, encouraging teaching segments and poignant moments of personal reflection, all of which call for honest introspection. Through this process, students who have been silent in the past find opportunity to share and trust their peers.
