Hurricane Recovery Efforts: Partner with YFC teams in Florida & Texas to help kids, ages 11-19, and their families recover from the impact of the recent catastrophic storms.
We depend on the involvement of responsible, caring adults to accomplish our mission—to reach local teens with the message that God loves them and has a plan for their lives. We need volunteers who are passionate about joining a community who serves Jesus by directly interacting with students, interceding in prayer, becoming financial partners, or even helping in the office. Wherever your gifts and talents lie, you can make an eternal difference in a young person’s life.

We are asking God to raise up a team of caring adults who love Jesus and possess a desire to establish positive relationships with kids in Central Michigan. We need volunteers who are passionate about joining a community who serves Jesus by directly interacting with students, intercessing in prayer, becoming finanical partners, or even helping in the office.

Working with Kids
Does your passion for Christ motivate you to help others? Do you enjoy spending time and building positive relationships with youth? Are you interested in joining a community of Christ followers who seek to serve Jesus by using their gifts and abilities? Then get in on the action! We are always in need of caring, mature adults who love Jesus to meet with the many teens we serve.
We hold many fun & crazy (maybe even crazy-fun?) special events throughout the year to raise vital funds for our work (Highland Festival 5k, Annual Golf outing, Pie Auction, and many others). We rely on volunteer help to make these events a success.
If you love lending a hand and just plain being awesome…we love awesome people! So call us!
We welcome business leaders and professionals who are willing to lend their expertise to advance our work. We also lean on professionals for advice on vocational enterprises for our teens.
If you’re in the business of being a genius and would like to share some of that with us…we love learning new things and would love to hear from you!
Prefer a more behind-the-scenes approach? We have a need for office help, event planning support, and other temporary or on-going assistance.
If you’re super sweet at making lists and checking them off…put us on that list!

“Bold prayers honor God, and God honors bold prayers. God isn’t offended by your biggest dreams or boldest prayers. He is offended by anything less. If your prayers aren’t impossible to you, they are insulting to God. Why? Because they don’t require divine intervention.”
– Mark Batterson, The Circle Maker
Central Michigan Youth For Christ continues to seek the heart of God. The more we seek God the bigger our prayers become and the bigger our prayers become the bigger our dreams grow AND the bigger our dreams grow the bigger our prayers become. Bottom line, we are called to PRAY more.
On behalf of EVERY student in Gratiot and Isabella County we are committed to praying more and praying bold prayers. EVERY morning at 10am we will stop, pause and pray for YFC and the students we are blessed to know. We invite you to do the same. Wherever you are at 10am EVERY day, would you stop, pause and pray for YFC?
Monday – Pray for EVERY High School Student in Gratiot and Isabella County.
Tuesday – Pray for the local church. Pray that students would connect to a church family and become life long followers of Jesus.
Wednesday – Pray for our Staff, board members, and ministry leaders.
Thursday – Pray for EVERY Middle School student in Gratiot and Isabella County
Friday – Pray for the finances of Youth For Christ. Pray that God would provide beyond what we could ask or imagine.
