Heartland YFC has been serving youth in our communities since 1962. Heartland Youth For Christ seeks community transformation through holistic and relational outreach to young people, ages 11-19, across Benton, Clayton, Delaware, and Linn County. Working together with the local church and other like-minded partners, we engage young people in healthy relationships; equip them with skills to live a Christ-centered life – physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually; and empower them to share the love of Jesus with those around them. Each year, Heartland Youth For Christ engages with over 600 kids in schools and neighborhoods.
