Welcome to Youthfortruth.org
Dan & Becky Harris, Founders and directors
Youth For Truth International is a ministry dedicated to raising up the next generation to be radical disciples that disciple, using the mission field to open their hearts, thus fulfilling the Great Commission of Matthew 28:19-20.
Youth For Truth recognized the spiritual battle field that they are living in and how they are continually being bombarded by the things of this world.
Youth For Truth believes that, today, there are many students waiting for a chance to change their lives, waiting for a fresh awareness of the Lord's presence. They are yearning to be a generation found kneeling before God, humbly seeking Jesus Christ. And we believe that God will use this generation to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth.
On this site you will find information about Youth For Truth, becoming a missionary, useful resources to help you in the ministry, and new exciting ways to get involved with missions and evangelism.

Our purpose is to mobilize (encourage young people to grow
into a deeper relationship with Christ, discipleship).
Our purpose is to serve the Lord as Christ followers (building
leaders by teaching young people how to serve others as Christ did).
Our purpose is to tell others (reach out to those who do not have
a personal relationship with Christ through evangelism training).
Youth for Truth Mission Statement:
YFT’s mission is to mobilize young people to develop their relationship with Jesus Christ into a lifelong commitment
by enriching their walk through personal devotion, regular Bible reading and prayer.
YFT’s mission is to train young leaders to serve Christ by serving others as they lead by their example. Loving and caring for other people and doing their part to help others in their needs both physically and spiritually.
YFT’s mission is to lead young people to pattern their life into a Godly lifestyle that reflects Christ to those who have not yet come to an understanding of the need for Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.
Vision of YFT:
To see young people recognize their potential as Christ followers and act upon His calling. To see them reach out to their surrounding environment and to the ends of the earth to share His unlimited love, through His ultimate power.
By using the arts as a tool to demonstrate the gospel, including
drama, poetry, song, dance, mime, clowns, puppets and
anything else God directs creatively.
By using camp ministry to challenge young people to step out of
their comfort zone and take a look at the needs in their own
communities and throughout the world.
By using Bible teachings to show them what they can do
to make a difference and to reach the lost.
By assisting missionaries and churches in various countries
to train indigenous young adults in sharing their faith and growing
deeper in their life commitment to Jesus Christ.
By an internship program which is an in depth nine month discipleship program that takes young adults
that are out of high school into a full time ministry experience. By deepening their personal walk with the Lord
in daily devotions and in Bible studies their hearts are prepared to reach out to teenagers on high school campuses,
in Christian clubs and in other gathering places. They demonstrate the need for evangelism in our communities though
specialty theater, media, and other arts. They will build relationships with many teens and have the opportunity
to share the love of the Lord on a regular basis.
Isaiah 6:8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying:
"Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?" Then I said, "Here am I! Send me."
Philippians 3:7-8 But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. Yet indeed I also count
all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered
the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ.
The Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God, that there is one God eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In the deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, and in His personal return in power and glory. That Christ is all in all, not just a religion or a Sunday tradition. That knowing Jesus is having a relationship with Him.

WE BELIEVE worship of God should be intelligent! Therefore, in our ministry, we emphasize Bible teaching so God may instruct us how He would be worshiped.

WE BELIEVE worship of God is fruitful. Therefore we look for His love in our lives as the greatest evidence that we are truly worshiping Him.
WE BELIEVE worship of God should be forgiving. Therefore we expect every person to be able resolve their differences for the glory of Christ.
