Our Focus

For the past 70 years, Youth For Christ Metro Pittsburgh has been raising up lifelong followers of Jesus who are led by their godliness in lifestyle, devotion to the Word of God and prayer, passion for sharing the love of Christ, and commitment to community involvement.

Being a relational-focused ministry, we establish local faith communities led by trained leaders who facilitate engaging weekly meetings that provide the youth with positive peers, trusted role models , and seasonal events/trips filled with fun adventures, all while being taught, shown, and inspired by Jesus Christ through His Word.

We help youth (grades 6th — 12th and beyond) by giving stability, purpose, direction, and guidance as we continually enhance their emotional, spiritual, physical, and educational well-being.

Where We Are Serving Youth Today

Youth For Christ Metro Pittsburgh has ministries working all over the south hills area and is always willing to expand our influence to wherever help is needed. Below are the districts we are impacting through our consistent commitment to create and sustain faith communities composed of youth that are led by trained, Godly leaders.

Each community is headed by directors that facilitate groups for middle schoolers, high schoolers, and college-aged young adults. These directors facilitate weekly meetings and events for the youth that provide them with good peers, connection with God, and a plethora of trained leaders who desire to develop trusting and healthy mentor relationships with them.

Our ministries are devoted to being prominent parts of their communities, desiring to be known for the God we serve and the youth that we help.
