Contact: Johan du Plessis
Position: National Co-ordinator
The Youth for Christ movement was originally born in America in the mid-1940s through an
impulse from the heart of God that simultaneously touched dozens of leaders in different places
with a concern to reach out to the young people normal church channels were missing. Through
interactions with young people, YFC endeavours to provide opportunities that will see
individuals activate their potential to become engaged participants within their communities.
