OUR MISSION STATEMENT:
We’re about seeing young people’s lives changed by Jesus.
Over the past 15 years since we launched Tees Valley Youth for Christ, we have seen God do some amazing things; lives changed, communities impacted, churches investing in youth ministry and thousands of young people hearing the Gospel. We are so thankful for those who have gone before us, who had vision for what we continue to do today and who have unashamedly shared the good, life changing news of Jesus Christ.
Our mission is to see young people’s lives changed by Jesus. We remain committed to communicating the life and love of Jesus relevantly to every young person in the Tees Valley through partnership with local churches, schools and communities.
We are a local centre under the leadership of British Youth for Christ, and are a registered charity, number 1100160.
