Youth For Christ- Imperial Valley

Jeremiah Vik

Initiated locally in 1994, YFC-IV continues a history of youth evangelism and discipleship that began with Friday night Street Levels meetings. In 1996, Todd Evangelist became executive director and the ministry began to focus on campus outreach. For more than a decade YFC has been the vehicle for local youth pastors and leaders to meet students on campus and give them the opportunity to get connected to a local church. The work continues today, as the torch was passed on to Executive Director Jeremiah Vik. Currently engaging over 700 students each week at 18 different ministry sites, YFC impacts thousands of teenagers in the Imperial Valley.

Our exciting ministry initiative seeks to transform lives through utilizing sports and other community initiatives as powerfully effective evangelism and discipleship tools for extending the Kingdom of God in Mexico and beyond. Transformados serves children, youth, and families through recreational, educational, and spiritually focused ministries and outreach. We currently work with elementary, middle school, high school, and college-aged youth. The ministry started with a focus on basketball as a means for building relationships and community involvement but has expanded into incorporating other sports within that program. Our goal is to expose our youth to a variety of skills and fitness through various sports as an alternative to drugs, alcohol, abuse, human trafficking, cartels, and dropping out of school. Through these relationships, we can share the love of Christ by inviting our youth to studies, activities, and one on one discipleship.

MISSIONARY GOSPEL FELLOWSHIP:

Duane Kepner

In earlier years Betty and I shared the Gospel of Christ in Northern Baja California, Mexico, speaking in Spanish. In 1984 the Instituto Biblico Logos, IBL (Logos Bible Institute) was begun in Ejido Tamaulipas. Although we are gone, the IBL continues today to train Mexican Christians to pastor, teach and witness for Christ.
I, Duane, now minister mostly in counseling and in prayer in either English or in Spanish. People contact me at any time. My theme is: God loves you. Trust Him.
Evangelizing opportunities are frequent. I preach or teach or pray whenever invited. Feel free to contact me.
MGF missionaries meet monthly to pray and to encourage one another. Daily God leads us as we pray for His direction.
Praise God.
