YCT was founded in 1992, by Samuel Njiru, also known to our youth as Pastor Sammy. He had received Christ Jesus in 1988 and felt his purpose was to reach out to young people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. His desire was to disciple and mentor young people, then send them into the world as changed, empowered and enlightened agents of Jesus Christ.

Sammy received the calling at a young age of 16. His passion in sharing the word of GOD has seen him traveling across the region. He engages in speaking and sharing the love of Jesus at conferences, forums, streets, rally meetings, schools, colleges, universities and churches and a very strong pillar in supporting of missions and church planting.

Sammy uses his gift of public speaking to talk with youth on engaging topics like: current issues affecting youth. He is able to link current events with biblical teaching Sammy is married to his dear sweetheart, Charity Njiru, and both are blessed with two beautiful daughters, Jada and Roni Njiru.
