Youth For Christ is NOT the answer… reaching 250,000+ teenage young people on Long Island. It is going to take a lot more than Youth For Christ can do.

That’s why --- Youth For Christ leads a collaborative ministry to young people by building bridges to youth leaders and youth pastors from a wide variety of churches and youth organizations. Youth For Christ is a catalyst to get youth leaders together on a regular basis for training, idea sharing, prayer and mutual support. Please feel free to contact us today at [email protected] about network meeting, click on the button below to get added to the email list, or just show up at one of the meetings.

Currently there are two youth leader networks on Long Island:

Nassau/Queens Network

Suffolk County Network



Check out what local Youth Pastors are saying about the meetings!

  • "When I was the Pastor of Student Ministries, the Network was an answer to prayer and a great blessing to me.  The Lord used it to renew me and strengthen me as I did His work in reaching the youth and young adults in my area.  In addition I made some wonderful friends that I now call family.  I truly encourage you to a be a part of this network and be blessed as I've been blessed." 

    -Nehru Grant, Pastor  of Living Hope Christian Church, Bellerose, NY

  • "These meetings have been far from the stereotypical meetings done at church. They are one of the highlights of my month as I get to share my victories and failures with those who understand what I have been or am currently going through.  On that same note, I learn so much from the experiences of my friends that I learn new ideas, strategies and methods that I apply in my group while avoiding certain pitfalls that may exist. These are not just other youth workers, they are my friends."
