The team in Uganda is committed to evangelism and discipleship of its young people. Their current ministries include gospel outreach and crisis pregnancy counseling.
Outreach ministry takes place in school, church, sports, university and leadership development programs. They challenge youth to commit their lives to the Lord, abstain from sex until marriage and live exemplary Christian lives.
Counselling and care for girls who are faced with crisis pregnancy and who have been rejected from home. There is a scholarship program which helps the young mothers, and their children, go back to school and also Operation Hannah encourages families to pray for their children and the nation.
Youth for Christ has been in existence in Uganda for 19 years, reaching youth with the love and the gospel of Jesus Christ. Over the years, programs have targeted the needs of young people i.e. gospel programs, sex education HIV/AIDS, crisis pregnancy. However, towards the end of 2007 there was a change in ministry strategy in order to be more effective in reaching youth.
Beginning 2008 the focus changed to building lasting relationships. This strategy was incorporated into the existing programs and new programs were also developed (i.e. life skill education and leadership development).
This has proved to be very effective. This is because there is now more time with the youth to build trustworthy relationships and they are discipled for a longer period. All staff and volunteers are excited for the many more years to come building lasting relationships with young people that through it many will come to know and live for the Lord.
