Changing Lives—Strengthening Families—Impacting Community
Central OhioYouth for Christ believes that every young person has value and potential to be a successful, well-adjusted adult. Our staff and volunteers are committed to working with these youth over the long haul to this end. Since 1981 we’ve successfully engaged many youth from diverse and challenging backgrounds and helped them make positive life choices. We do this by focusing on building quality relationships with the teens because these relationships are what help create the context for real life change.
We have a special burden for teens considered to be “at-risk.” Many of the teens we serve come from broken homes and have been exposed to drugs, alcohol abuse, and physical and emotional abuse at home. They are hungry for an adult to take a healthy interest in them to give them a positive example.
We work through a variety of ministries tailored to the needs of the individuals we serve.
Our focus areas include:
- Teens in urban, suburban, and rural areas in Central Ohio
- Teens in juvenile detention centers
- Teens with counseling needs
- Teens who are the victims of domestic minor sex trafficking.
COYFC is not a church, but does offer Bible studies. They are for all people, and we encourage those who are seeking to ask questions and approach God at their own pace.
