Give Life to Your Story

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

Every day at thousands of community centers, high schools, middle schools, juvenile institutions, coffee shops, and local hangouts, YFC staff and volunteers meet with young people who need Jesus. We are rural and urban and we are always about the message of Jesus.

Mesabi Range YFC accomplishes its mission with these local ministry programs:

  • Campus Life
    Campus Life ministry combines healthy relationships with creative programs to help young people make good choices, establish a solid foundation for life, and positively impact their schools. Like every ministry of YFC, Campus Life seeks to engage these young people wherever they are found as lifelong followers of Jesus Christ.

  • Juvenile Justice Ministry (JJM)
    JJM seeks to engage young people as they are met in a variety of youth-serving institutions (detention centers, probation, correctional facilities, group homes, residential treatment centers and emergency shelters).  These valued relationships are sustained through ongoing involvement as they reenter their communities. Our local JJM Ministry volunteers meet with the young men at the Mesabi KidsPeace Academy in Buhl.

  • Amplify
    Amplify reaches young people, grades 7-12, in the Western Iron Range, with the love of Jesus Christ. Partnering with Youth for Christ, like-minded churches and individuals, this student-led ministry reaches the lost through Christ-sharing relationships, provides discipleship to new Christians, and provides fellowship and encouragement to young Christian leaders

History of Mesabi Range Youth For Christ

Mesabi Range Youth for Christ has been a part of the Iron Range community for over 40 years. One of our first directors, Ken Davis, has since moved on to become a popular Christian speaker and comedian. He set the stage for MRYFC’s rich heritage. Over the years, many people have been touched by the ministry in one way or another. One thing remains the same: our desire to see young people come to know Christ in a real and powerful way. It’s fun to hear stories of the “good ‘ol days” and exciting to learn of new ones happening right now. YFC has left a major impact in the community and will continue to for years to come.
