Greater Erie Youth for Christ
Building Authentic Christ-Centered Relationships

We partner with our local churches and other like-minded organizations to reach lost youth on Christ's behalf.  These collaborative partnerships allow us to provide meaningful programming and creative outreach such as sports camps, scholarship programs, movie nights, clubs, and more for youth grades 6-12.  

We are in active pursuit of youth ages 11-19 who are walking through pivotal and story-shaping moments. A pivotal moment can be anything from navigating a new school, to becoming a teen parent, to spending time in a juvenile institution. These young people can often feel overlooked, and it’s our mission to let them know they are seen, heard, and valued. Our aim is to be a steady voice and presence in their lives, intentionally postured as a humble and authentic source of truth based on the full gospel.
