There are three levels of event sponsorship. In addition, we provide the opportunity for some partners to serve as Matching Gift Sponsors, who provide funds that serve as a matching incentive for the Comedy Café appeal. All sponsors will receive special recognition in our program.
The YFC Comedy Café is an annual fundraising event that helps fund the on-going ministry of Greater Iowa Youth For Christ and its ministry satellites. This unique event combines coffee and delicious dessert with family-friendly comedy and a creative program that highlights young people and tells the YFC story.
The YFC Comedy Café started in Mason City in 2006, and has grown each year. Last year, over 1,800 people attended the event.
This year, the Comedy Café will take place in Clear Lake, Mason City, Hampton, and Des Moines Iowa. Each evening will feature hilarious comedian, Marty Simpson, and stories from the local ministry in each community and surrounding area.
Admission is free. The Comedy Café is underwritten by sponsors.
The Comedy Café provides a perfect blend of dessert and fellowship, fun and laughter, and purpose that inspires people to make a difference with teens. You can expect a quality event that includes a combination of the following elements: Time for social interaction over coffee and dessert, student testimonies, a ministry update, professional comedy act, and a free-will offering. The response from previous years has been extremely positive.
The Comedy Café will run from 6:30 pm – 8:45 pm. The first 30 minutes will provide fellowship time with coffee and dessert, and the program will begin at 7:00 pm. Doors will open at 6:15 pm.
There are two audiences that the Comedy Café is designed to engage. The first are people who have limited or no knowledge of Youth For Christ and want to learn more about it. We simply want to introduce the ministry to this audience. The second audience is the people who know YFC and want to help support its work with students. The program will present a brief ministry report and provide an opportunity to continue to partner with us. Whatever relationship you have with YFC, we welcome you to attend.
No. The Comedy Café does a great job involving people from all walks of life. The program will include faith content as we tell the YFC story.
