About YFC Croatia

After pioneering efforts in the mid 1990s, YFC Croatia was officially founded in 1997, just as the war in Croatia was ending. The team has always been led by national leadership and staff. YFC Croatia adapted and further developed various ministry models from other YFCI programs such as hosting Project Serve teams, Daniel Generation training for young/lay leaders, outreach in schools through drama ministry called SwitcH, and the interactive meditative outreach Labyrinth.

The small but mighty Croatian team almost immediately started focusing on developing unique and culturally relevant ministry models which have had great success in reaching youth all over Croatia and establishing YFCC as one of the most creative and forward leaning ministries in the country. These include The Advent Labyrinth, The Stations of the Cross, and The Reformation Exhibition.

YFC Croatia is now undergoing an intense growth spurt: a local chapter is being opened in another city, a new SuperWoman ministry is starting nationally, and a Multimedia Studio ministry is being built and began operations during the COVID year. YFCC is also providing leadership in pioneering and establishing YFC chapters in the neighboring countries.
