“The Tuscaloosa Comedy Café is our community’s premier comedy event benefiting the work of Youth for Christ,” said Mike Green, the executive director of Tuscaloosa YFC. “The event provides funding for YFC’s ministry at 17 area high schools and middle schools.”
The 2017 Comedy Café offers plenty of opportunities for laughter and inspiration, with comedian Daren Streblow bringing his unique, family-friendly, standup humor as the headliner. In addition, YFC students and staff will share personal stories with attendees.
“This year will feature the amazing stories of high school students impacted by the ministry,” Green said.
Tuscaloosa’s Youth for Christ ministers to over 2000 students in Tuscaloosa County through its two primary programs, Campus Life and Parent Life. The Comedy Café allows YFC to continue to expand. It is a large outreach, and one that’s needed, according to Green.
“Every day in high schools, community centers, middle schools, coffee shops and local hangouts, YFC staff and volunteers meet with young people who need Jesus.”
