NCYFC is changing the way ministry is done throughout the US and the world

NCYFC is a nationally and internationally recognized organization for its practices, approach, and for how it presents the Gospel to young people while meeting the social and spiritual needs of youth. Here is some examples.

"NCYFC is crucial to the community it is a part of, from the caring staff to the programs; their relationships with youth transform lives and will change generations of families.  Without NCYFC there would be a huge hole in their community."
Gareth Unruh 
National Director of Juvenile Justice

"More than anything, Jeff brings a vision and passion to the national Friend2Friend movement for seeing communities of Christian students really engage in Christ sharing relationships. We need models of this kind of living not only for students but for Friend2Friend coaches and staff across the country and Jeff is one of few who can do can do that confidently."

Mitch Jenzen
Director of Central Coast Youth for Christ (CA)

"Thanks to Jeff's exemplary ministry with Northern Colorado YFC and the National Friend2Friend team, ministry site leaders across the country are being equipped to mobilize students to influence their peers towards Christ."
Kevin Bussema
National Director, Friend2Friend

Northern Colorado Youth for Christ has been featured several times in the Greeley Tribune including a front-page article and editorial stating, "What a concept a "gang" of juveniles that spends Friday nights staying out of trouble, talking about their faith, and planning community service projects.
