Youth for Christ reaches young people everywhere, working together with the local church and other like-minded partners to raise up lifelong followers of Jesus.

We have a new and urgent need for speakers at Juvenile Hall during Sunday service. Church service is from 3-4:00 every Sunday, year round.   You would be paired on a team of usually 2-3 other volunteers.  Speakers will slowly work up from 5-10 minutes to their desired comfort level, and paired on a team accordingly. The speaking style we encourage is relational. We recommend sharing favorite Bible Verses and how they have applied in your life, as well as what the verses could do if applied in their lives. It is a very basic gospel service.

The time commitment would be at least once per month. Arrival time would be at 2:30 sharp at 2215 Blue Gum Avenue in Modesto.  Being cleared for Sunday church services also clears you for Tuesday night mentoring with kids one-on-one in Juvenile hall if that is something you would like to also pursue.

We set you up for success!! You'll be working with the Juvenile Hall Chaplain.  Don't be scared, God always shows up and loves the kids through you!! You can do this!! Thank you so much for your prayerful consideration of this new and exciting opportunity!
