our vision

Youth Fishing 4 Christ (YF4C) is a non-profit faith based out-reach ministry that pours the acceptance and the love of Jesus into the lives of young people while teaching them skills they can enjoy throughout their life.

YF4C is composed of a governing board of 7 men that are supported by a host of volunteers and Deep Creek Community Church.
We have all joined together out of a desire to reach young people in our community who may not have a positive role model actively involved in their life.


how it works

We teach saltwater fishing skills while planting the seed of hope and demonstrating the irreplaceable love that comes
from a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

In a hand-on classroom setting in small groups, we cover boating safety, basic marine navigation, fishing ethics, fish identification, cast-nets, knots and casting, but most importantly, we demonstrate the attitude and actions of adults who love Jesus as much as we love fishing.
Upon completion of this class, participants receive a custom YF4C long sleeve UPF-50 Dri-Fit fishing jersey, a new fishing rod and reel combination and a new Bible.

Participants are then split into groups of four, two adults and two young people per boat, where they put what they have learned in the classroom into action by spending a half-day fishing Charlotte Harbor on boats provided by the YF4C ministry. Participants will then have the opportunity to participate in a more specialized class where they will learn to target specific species of fish followed by a full-day fishing trip on Charlotte Harbor. Our hope is to see these young people mature into productive and valuable assets of the community giving back the things they learned from their involvement with Youth Fishing 4 Christ.
