Sheaves For Christ

Sheaves for Christ is the fundraising ministry of the General Youth Division of the United Pentecostal Church International. Since its inception in 1953, over $120 million has been raised to fund missions and ministries around the world.

A missionary having the vehicle he needs to carry the gospel to the furthest regions of his country.

A North American missionary having a building so that he can share truth in his community.

A child finding healing and a future at Tupelo Children’s Mansion or Lighthouse Ranch for Boys.

A student pursuing her calling and Christian Education with a SFC Scholarship.

A family overcoming chemical dependency and finding restoration through Spirit of Freedom Ministries.

When you invest in Sheaves for Christ you intentionally share the gospel around the world.

North Texas Youth Ministries, as part of the North Texas District of the United Pentecostal Church International, is very intentional about efforts to raise money for this great cause!

North Texas Youth Ministries encourages the students of the North Texas District to be a part of our fundraising efforts on a district level, on the local church level, and also individually. 

The Real McCoy Contest is a nation wide contest that rewards students for raising substantial funds for Sheaves for Christ on their own. The Real McCoy Contest stipulates a minimum of $1,000 raised by the student to enter. 

Once a student qualifies by raising $1,000 additional criteria are used to select one student to represent the North Texas District at The Real McCoy Weekend in St. Louis, MO. 

Every student who qualifies for the contest is awarded on the district level by our North Texas Youth Committee as a way to thank them for their hard work. 

Sheaves for Christ is a fundraiser that is driven by students. North Texas Youth Ministries is able to contribute in a significant way to this effort only because of the efforts of our Real McCoy qualifiers and our students who make it happen!
