Campus Life

Campus Life is an action-oriented program aimed at middle school and high school students. It allows young people to come together in weekly meetings and discuss life, and how to deal with today's obstacles and struggles in a positive, Christian way. Our staff and volunteers encourage them to achieve a "balanced life" through the physical, mental, social, and spiritual aspects of life, as well as challenging them to think through their values, ethics, and beliefs. We present the teachings of Jesus Christ, emphasizing the aspect of relationship between Him and ourselves, and how we are to relate to each other. In a society where teens will have a better than 50% chance of having reduced support in these areas because of divorce, one-parent family, or not being churched on a regular basis; Campus Life combines healthy relationships with creative programs to help teens make good choices, establish a solid foundation for life, and positively impact their schools for Christ.

Population(s) Served

Our local Parent/Teen Life program, as part of national Youth for Christ Teen Parents program, started locally in 1993 to support young women between the ages of 13 and 20 who are pregnant or have just had their baby. This program provides a support group for the teen who are referred to YFC by their school, local church, or social service agency. The young lady will receive assistance for physical needs, but also will receive encouragement, counsel, and instruction for their emotional, spiritual, social, and mental needs as well. In the support group where the Mom will benefit from positive peer relationships, the Teen Mom is often matched with a caring mentor as well. The Program Coordinator and mentors will also discuss the teachings of Jesus Christ, and that He gives purpose and hope for both Mom and her baby. This helps them make good choices establishing a solid foundation in the lives of both Mom and baby.

Population(s) Served

City Life is a more holistic ministry model that helps young people in urban communities through teaching life skills, building relationships with caring adult role model "mentors", providing opportunities for positive group experiences, a chance to give back to their community through social involvement, and opportunities to discuss the teachings of Jesus Christ and its relevance to their lives. In areas where teens often experience minimal support economically, spiritually, and where family role models are often absent, City Life will combat the allure of the gang by providing positive peer support to become productive citizens of the community.

Population(s) Served

Through the Juvenile Justice Ministry, YFC is working in six detention centers in Nashville which is making a significant difference in the young adult lives being served.  We coach, counsel, advise, and love these individuals to let them know that they can have hope and a future outside of  life of crime.
