Mission Statement

YFC reaches young people everywhere, working together with the local church and other likeminded partners to raise up lifelong followers of Jesus who lead by their godliness in lifestyle, devotion to the Word of God and prayer, passion for sharing the love of Christ and commitment to social involvement

Background Statement
Established in 1987, Bluegrass Youth for Christ focuses on middle and high school age youth.  A veteran leader from Indianapolis came to start up a new ministry, beginning with high school Campus Life clubs.  The emphasis in Campus Life is spiritual outreach and positive social development.  In the following two years, two new initiatives were started:  City Life, a program to reach urban youth and urban neigborhoods, and Youth Guidance, a spiritually-based ministry to incarcerated youth. 
Through the years, the program formats have changed, but the focus has always been to fulfill the mission.
Current emphases are servicing middle school youth and their families in the north end of Lexington, particularly at Winburn Middle School, and providing a regular gathering time for youth pastors and workers for mutual fellowship, encouragement and spiritual nurture in a safe environment.   
Impact Statement
Accomplishments during 2010-2011 Fiscal year
1.  Reduced past financial obligations by $20,000.00
2.  Involved 110 middle and high school students in after school tutoring (Safe House) programs, and helped 13 students to graduate with their high school diploma.
 
Goals for 2011-2012 Fiscal year
1. Develop and mobilize 12-15 adult leaders to serve the students at Winburn Middle School in before and after school activities and homework assistance, and in a spiritually-based Campus Life M Club (after school) weekly.
2. Provide a regular gathering for 15 youth ministry leaders from the community for mutual support, encouragement, problem-solving, and shared vision.
3. Establish a new middle school outreach in Versailles (Woodford County).
