youth for christ

Rwanda

Because of you…

YOUTH EVANGELISM

We are partnering with local churches and high schools to reach all young people in Rwanda.
Every year, over 50,000 young people are reached and 1,600 evangelists trained in 24 local communities where YFC/Rwanda is operating.

Training and seminars are conducted for volunteers and young leaders.

Those who don’t attend school and street kids are ministered to through sports and music, plus other ministry aspects that address their basic needs.

A SCHOOL OF LEADERSHIP AND DISCIPLESHIP

The school was established to develop a generation of young leaders who are followers of Jesus Christ. Each year over 30 young students undergo eight months’ training. Today, Rwanda’s sons and daughters who have attended SLD are building and giving hope to the future of the country.

MOBILIZING PRAYER

Prayer for the young people is conducted through three prayer movements.

  • Operation Daniel
    Young people meet to pray for themselves and for youth who aren’t followers of Christ.
  • Operation Watchmen
    Fathers meet to pray for the youth.
  • Operation Hannah
    Mothers meet to pray for the young people.

EDUCATION

90% of the kids in Rwanda attend public schools where quality is low. Excellent private schools are beyond the reach of many families.

To give quality education to all kids irrespective of their families’ economies, we built schools. In 2006, we opened the first campus in Kigali which has now 970 kids from preschool to grade in 2016; we opened another campus in the East of Rwanda which now has 380 kids. Our future plan is to start another branch in Byumba, Rwanda’s Northern Province.

Hundreds of kids from poor families study through sponsorship, and they have not disappointed in excellence and godliness. Over 1,320 kids from poor families are in need of sponsorship to attain quality education from Kigali Christian Schools.

Our plan for Rwanda’s youth is bigger. We intend to establish Kigali Christian College of Liberal Arts by 2020. The college will focus on producing quality Christian educators, youth ministers in local churches, leadership development and other faculties such as economics and business.

PROJECT SERVE

Homes are built for widows, communities are helped and the gospel is spread.

This kind of ministry is done at the chapter level. In each of our 6 ministry chapters located all over Rwanda, our volunteers are participating in many life changing projects.

Young people are also learning more of what it means to be servant leaders by meeting the needs of their community.
