YFCI Americas is a dynamic ministry serving youth in 23 countries in North America, Latin America and the Caribbean.
The Americas Liaison Team exists to propel these ministries and help them grow using three key strategies:
- Connect YFCI National Teams with US and Canadian partners.
- Consult on ministry opportunities and challenges.
- Communicate the story of what God is doing through YFCI throughout the Americas.
Here's How we do it.
RESOURCING NATIONAL MINISTRIES
We provide support, consultancy & resources to national ministries in order to assist in the overall support and development of the ministry and mission of YFCI in the Americas.
PIONEERING NEW COUNTRIES
We will be assist in the pioneering of new national ministries by raising up local local leaders.
There are many US missionaries serving throughout the Americas. We will be visiting and encouraging YFC missionaries when traveling in nations where they serve.
PROMOTION & FINANCIAL DEVELOPMENT
We assist in the promotion of YFC in the Americas by producing promotional material, recruiting YFC Americas representatives to advocate for the ministry in churches and to the Christian public, providing opportunities for the YFC Americas Area Director and National Program staff to promote the ministry in the USA, and to develop a group of people to pray regularly for the YFC Americas ministry.
An important aspect of our ministry is photojournalism. We use photography to raise awareness of under-reported stories and raise funds for our partners working on the frontlines. Photography is one of the most powerful tools we have to give a voice to those who do not have one. Our images are used by our local partners to document and authenticate the work they are doing; as well as in the media to raise the overall profile and increase the understanding of the issue.
NATIONS IN FOCUS
These three nations have proven to be leaders in their region both in ministry growth, and organizational health. By focusing on strengthening these National Ministries, we are positioning them to mentor and bring up surrounding nations as they strive to grow their ministries as well.
