Christian Emphasis

In 1821 George Williams started the first Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) in London, England to substitute Bible study and prayer for life on the streets. Over the next 188 years the YMCA has evolved into what it is today; influencing the lives of millions throughout the generations.

As the YMCA has grown and developed throughout the years, the one steady principle throughout the history of the YMCA has been its dedication to Christian values and the idea of fostering, preserving and advancing the Christian purpose. This principle has been a constant for generations and will continue into the future.

The Defiance Area YMCA understands the importance of this principle. Our Christian Emphasis Committee seeks to better support our members in building a healthy spirit, mind and body. This committee considers ideas, projects and activities that will foster, preserve and advance the Christian Purpose.
