Where It All Began!

When Teens For Christ first began, our idea of reaching ONE MILLION teenagers a week was just a dream. We didn't know that it would ever start to come to fruition. When people come into our building on Elida Road in Lima, Ohio, they laugh when we tell them that a ministry that is 296,000 teenagers strong is based out of a little town in Ohio. We believe that, just like God used Bethlehem as a starting point for a change in the world and in history itself, Lima can be too.

We currently have 24 chapters (including our chapter in JDC - Juvenile Detention Center) in the Lima area, running in both middle schools and high schools. In our office, there is a staff of 13 people and 16 interns. We also have over 70 volunteers that help out in our chapters!
