About Us


Born over 70 years ago (starting just after the national movement was formed), West Central Minnesota Youth For Christ is a non-profit 501(c)(3) ministry that is on a mission to call young people to become lifelong followers of Jesus Christ.  Whether through high school and middle school campus clubs, music outreaches, ministry networking, mass events and more, the goal remains the same: to see every young person, in every people group, in every nation, have the opportunity to make an informed decision about Jesus Christ and to become part of the local church.


Since 1987 I have had the opportunity to lead the ministry of West Central Minnesota Youth For Christ.
Our mission has always been to call young people to be life-long followers of Jesus.
And the unchurched teenager continues to be our target!

Although our methods have changed over the years, the strategy is still the same. We
become friends with kids in order to hear their story, share ours and introduce them to

Currently, we have over 800 kids in our 34 weekly student meetings/clubs. Special events
boost the number of students into the thousands that hear the life-changing message of Jesus every year!

Through God’s Grace, the consistent and faithful work of our staff and the ongoing financial support and prayer of the ‘YFC Family’, young people are hearing and embracing Jesus as their Savior.

In His Service,

Bob Poe
