Founded in 1943, Youth for Christ International is an interdenominational para-church organization committed to the promotion of the Christian faith and a Christian lifestyle in a way that is attractive and relevant for the youth of the 131 different countries in which it is now working. The first full-time employee of YFC was Dr. Billy Graham, the renown evangelist. The activities of YFC have a spiritual as well as social focus but its overall thrust is that young people will come to know and trust Christ in a personal way and demonstrate the reality of their faith through a biblically-rooted lifestyle. YFC Denmark was established in 1974 and has been reaching youth throughout the country in many ways, including worship events, training of Danish Christian artists, short-term mission teams, interdenominational teenage and youth leaders conferences, evangelistic events, and by taking international bands and national speakers into schools and high schools. The work of YFC Denmark is done in cooperation with local churches, clubs, and local YFC groups. The organization has approximately 1650 members and leaders. As a member of of Dansk Ungdoms Fællrsrå (Danish Youth Council), YFC Denmark has contact with about 15,000 youth annually. The national offices of YFC Denmark are located in Århus. The National Director of YFC is Leif Johanson. Websites: www.yfc.dk/ and www.yfci.org/.
