In the 1950s, YFC became an international movement and in 1968 delegates from 16 nations formed what we now call Youth for Christ International. The number of chartered nations has since grown from 16 to 79. Throughout this half century, YFC's earliest and most enduring motto has been "Geared to the times, but anchored to the Rock." Under the leadership of its newest president, David Wraight, Youth for Christ has remained "anchored to the Rock," remaining rooted in a strong, Biblical faith, while very much "geared to the times." Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit in its over 4,500 full and part-time staff and over 26,000 volunteers and using contemporary methods to remain on the cutting edge of youth evangelism, YFC is aggressively extending the frontiers of the Gospel into the 21st century youth cultures of over 100 countries.
