Success Story

Carlos Gutierrez is one of Youth for Christ's world-changing young leaders. He took on the leadership of Youth for Christ in Mexico in January of 2008.

In September 2008 Jose Carlos was sponsored to attend the Youth for Christ General Assembly in South Africa and it was there he caught the vision of reaching every young person. Jose Carlos was provided with a scholarship for an intensive 2-year leadership development and empowerment process.

In addition to the leadership development process Jose Carlos was provided with a mentor and staff training and support. In the few years that Jose Carlos has served as National Director, he has developed into an exceptional visionary leader, a strong communicator and a passionate pioneer for the Kingdom of God.

Youth for Christ has now been established in nine states and currently reaches around 40,000 young people. Jose Carlos has an aggressive goal to establish Youth for Christ ministry in all 31 states and is pursuing many more pioneering opportunities within and beyond the borders of Mexico.

The investment in this young world-changer and the fledgling ministry in Mexico has resulted in tens of thousands of young people being reached and released the potential for a whole nation to be impacted with the life-changing message of Jesus and His Kingdom.

Your gift will support world changing young pioneers just like Jose Carlos.
