Youth For Christ is excited to host its 5th Annual Comedy Cafe, 'See the Story'. We chose this theme after seeing the power of Christ in changing young people's stories. We have seen walls come down as students begin share their lives and students have entered into a relationship with Jesus, who loves them beyond their circumstances. These stories are the reason we do what we do. The YFC Comedy Cafe is a fundraising event that will showcase Christ's story, the YFC story, and the changing stories of young people, while inviting others to join our tale. A special guest, comedian and inspirational author, Ken Davis, will join us to lead this side splitting and heartwarming event for all ages. March 7, 2015 at the Doubletree Hotel, 6:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. Doors open at 6:00 p.m.
