For the past 29 years my wife Alison and I have been dedicated to the mission of Youth for Christ in Saskatoon. Over these years, we've seen many changes but one thing has been the same - God has used this ministry to bring life to teenagers. Over the past few years, I have felt God's prompting that it was time to step aside from leadership in order that new leadership could emerge. My desire is to have a healthy transition which leaves a strong YFC ministry in the city of Saskatoon. I am very pleased that this transition process has confirmed Kim Worthington as the new Executive Director of Saskatoon YFC. - Gil
SYFC has a strong and healthy board, a dedicated staff team who sacrifice daily to give to the mission, and now a leader who can propel this ministry into the future. I am convinced that God's hand is evident in this ministry and has been through this process.
The reason you are getting this letter is because you are a key part of the family of Saskatoon YFC. Through your prayers and financial support of our staff and different ministries, like Project Serve, YFCHL, California Breakaway and YFC DropIn, you have been a part of this team that is helping bring life and hope to youth.
For seventeen years, Barb and I have seen God change the lives of young people in incredible ways. We are excited for this new leadership opportunity and look forward to communicating with you the great work of our Lord in the lives of young people in our city. At SYFC, our vision is that every young person in the Saskatoon area will be transformed by God's love and life-changing power. With an estimated 30,000 young people in our surrounding area, we at SYFC, in partnership with the Christian community, have a vision to reach these students with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. - Kim
