Richard & Jessica Giesbrecht
We both grew up in the Winkler area. Moved to Portage la Prairie and started with Youth For Christ October of 2014.
Our main focus at YFC is to minister to the community around The Door through working, programming, planning from The Door. The age group we aim at reaching is Grades 6-8. The Factory focuses on Grades 9 and up so we see the need to turn our attention to the critical ages of 12-14. This is the age where big questions are wrestled with and choices are made that have lifelong effects.
Side focuses have been the many young and expecting moms, and any parents of the youth who are available. We see the benefit of connecting not only with the kids but using those connections as a springboard to connecting with their parents and other adults.
Our passion is to see young men and women become informed and transformed by the truths of Scripture and the Life of Jesus through direct and indirect teaching, through our words and actions.
