Northwestern Colorado Youth For Christ

A nonprofit organization

Our passion is to minister in the name of Jesus. We are liberated by His forgiveness and propelled by His love, to declare mercy and truth, wherever we find young people.


"Jump Start, which met with a growing number of Rifle Middle School students each Tuesday morning, was in integral part of our schools overall commitment to developing character, service and leadership with our students. While not an official school program, Jump Start dovetailed with the systems and curricular work we used as a school and was a tremendous resource to our efforts with kids. The volunteers and staff that Zach Robinson led were true partners with our staff on behalf of the students. I was always grateful for their partnership". - Kevin Marlatt Principal
