About Youth For Christ Winnipeg & Rural Youth Drop Ins
Youth For Christ Winnipeg is a team of passionate people, including staff, volunteers, and ministry partners. We are people with a common desire to see young people reach their full potential in every area of life. We are 4,000 donors, 95 staff, mobilizing 300 volunteers to work with more than 6,000 youth through a variety of environments.

Our passion is to combine healthy relationships with creative programs to help young people make good choices, establish a solid foundation for principled living and investigate Christian faith. We want to see young people reach their full redemptive potential.

YFC Winnipeg is a grassroots organization that specializes in meeting the needs of teenagers. The Winnipeg Chapter of Youth For Christ began in 1954 and over time has evolved and matured in its mandate to address the needs of the whole person, where discipleship/evangelism is the primary focus.

In rural communities throughout Manitoba, YFC has Youth Centres that combine healthy relationships with creative programs to help young people make good choices, establish a solid foundation for life, and positively impact their friends.
With a vision to care for the whole person, these centres balance the physical, mental, social and spiritual dimensions of life. The centres serve as a place for students to have fun, make friends and talk about important issues. Besides opportunities to ‘hangout’, there are small group opportunities, special events and trips.

Salary through Ministry Partner Development
The salary of this position, after being determined on a scale based on education and work-related experience, is funded through Ministry Partner Development, which is made possible in two ways: first, by donations made to Youth for Christ from family, friends, and acquaintances of a particular staff member, which enable Youth for Christ to care financially for that staff member; second, by the prayer of others. Ministry Partner Development is literally developing partnerships with others who will come alongside you, pray for you, and care for you. You’ll be amazed by the people who will want to partner with you and stand behind you and the mission of YFC.

Also, Ministry Partner Development acquaints each staff person with a real need to trust God’s provision. We have found that to begin in ministry by having to rely on the supply of our Heavenly Father, brings one face-to-face with the reality of faith. After all, faith is not a thought that surfaces in reflection or anticipation, but is that which occurs in the moment of action. To trust God for money can lead one into the habit of trusting Him for other spiritual essentials.

All successful candidates will receive training through YFC’s national Ministry Partner Development resources.
