Jean Baptiste Mugarura | Youth for Christ | Rwanda
Jean Baptiste Mugarura began working for Youth for Christ Rwanda in 1995, one year after the 1994 Rwandan Genocide. In the years since, he has been ministering in a nation shattered by this history. His ministry includes addressing trauma, tension, poverty, illiteracy, and disease.
Today the dedicated Youth for Christ team has grown to multiple staff and hundreds of volunteers. Together, they have accomplished the following:
helped re-establish Churches
trained thousands of church and youth leaders on leadership and discipleship
taken the Gospel of Jesus Christ to more than a half a million young people
been involved in trauma healing, peace and reconciliation.
Youth for Christ Rwanda focuses on evangelism and discipleship, education and leadership development, and economic empowerment.
