Mission Statement


To see every young person and their family in the Denver Metro area know and experience the love of Jesus through campus and community outreach.

Description


Denver Area Youth for Christ builds relationships with young people through our Juvenile Justice Ministry (JJM). JJM staffs and volunteers offer pastoral care to young people who are incarcerated in 7 juvenile facilities throughout the Denver metro area. Christian volunteers are needed to offer spiritual care (through small group Bible studies, one-on-one counseling, and church services) to the youths while they are "locked up," and also in the community (as an aftercare ministry) when the youth is released.

Organizational Statement of Faith


1. We believe the Bible is the inspired, the only authoritative Word of God. 2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return to power and glory. 4. We believe that, for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. 5. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. 6. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost. The saved are resurrected unto eternal life with Christ and the lost are resurrected unto eternal damnation. 7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ.
