Game Changer Conference 2023 event schedule

This year UCF will celebrate 15 years proudly serving Montgomery County partnering with stakeholders, parents, and young people to promote student success and to “change lives in the community one student at a time amongst at-promise youth.”  


Friends, Family and Students in this new year let’s reimagine yourself in 2022.  It is truly a time to reset, retool, renew, redirect, and rejoice. 


Think about what you can be and what you can do in this new year.  We have 52 weeks of opportunity to become the best version of yourself.  In the next 365 days, I challenge you to think “next level,” to do the necessary hard work to connect to your dreams and to your destiny!  


UCF prayer for you is to reimagine yourself and be intentional in your pursuit of excellence.  The new reality is that our community and world has transformed right before our eyes in plain sight!  We are counting on your renewed commitment to pursue your education, develop new ideas, and create new businesses, or innovative pathways. 


UCF Executive Board and Key Supporters encourage you to pursue excellence in all areas of your life.  We desire to keep the "main thing the main thing" preparing students to BE EXTRAORDINARY! 

This new year will feature the following significant planned activities for youth using Virtual Zoom platform:


  1. Math Homework Club (Every Thursday @ 7 p.m.)


  3. Leadership Development Institute (LDI)

  4. UCF 15-Year Anniversary


Announcing a new Initiative underway will be our Workforce Readiness Initiative




We are grateful for your partnership and your generous support every year allows us to impact thousands of students.


We will remain in a virtual environment using a Zoom Platform. We are counting on you to connect your youth group, your sons and daughters, nephews, and friends in your “circle of influence” to UCF monthly youth engagement meetings regardless of where they live.


The ASK: Simply request that you become a “helping hand” by getting the word out to your community. 


Dads, moms, guardians, mentors, church youth leaders, coaches, anyone working directly with youth, please register your student(s) to connect to UCF many youth initiatives.

“Building Youth Success by Changing the Landscape and Leveraging Opportunities"

About Unity Christian Fellowship

Thank you for visiting Unity Christian Fellowship, Incorporated’s (UCF’s) website. We hope that you will feel our excitement as you visit the many locations on this site. We are very active in the community with like-minded organizations that are concerned with youth development and promoting student success.


UCF is a 501(c)3 non-profit community-based, premiere youth development organization that focuses on developing youth through enriching activities throughout the year. Since 2006, our youth organization has continued to successfully nurture, assist, and link young people to their destiny. We were founded by a group of Christian friends who turned what we naturally do for the community into an organization that works with young people of all ages.

Our mission is to promote student success and “change lives in the community one student at a time” by exposing young people to positive experiences that they otherwise would not have.  We do this by teaching educational strategies, leadership and life skills that enable them to make wise decisions throughout their middle and high school education.  

The members of UCF intend to serve as a catalyst in the community.  And our students are expected to become responsible, civic-minded adults who will make a positive contribution in their homes, schools, community, and society. In that light, this marks the second year that students have served in leadership roles within the organization.

We have formed a strong circle of supportive adults to help students navigate life's daily pitfalls, deal with the challenges of adolescence, and successfully manage their academic requirements in school. We teach our students to consistently strive for excellence in school. We want all of our students to improve their academic performance before they graduate from high school so they will have options and a successful path forward--be it college enrollment, vocation/trade schools, or careers in the military, federal service or private sector.

UCF also awards scholarships to eligible students who are highly motivated, demonstrate a commitment to community service, perform successfully academically, and have leadership potential.  Eligible students must have actively participated in the Aim High in Life Educational and Life Skills Program for a minimum of one year. The scholarships are funded primarily through UCF’s Annual Scholarship Dinner and private contributions.
