WHAT IS YOUNG LIFE?

Young Life doesn't start with a program. It starts with adults who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don't happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency.  

So Young Life leaders log many hours with kids — where they are, as they are. We listen to their stories and learn what's important to them because we genuinely care about their joys, triumphs, heartaches and setbacks.

We believe in the power of presence. Kids' lives are dramatically influenced when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God's love with them. Because their Young Life leader believes in them, they begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning and purpose.

This is the first step of a lifelong journey; the choices they make today, based upon God's love for them, will have an impact on future decisions — careers chosen, marriages formed and families raised — all ripples from the time when a Young Life leader took time to reach out and enter their world.

BEST NIGHT OF THE WEEK

for every kid to experience a 

PARTY WITH A PUROSE. 

Controlled chaos that is hard to describe, but understood when seen. Before the night ends, we share a simple message of 

GOD'S LOVE FOR THEM. 

After all, that is why we celebrate.

CAMPAIGNERS

EXPERIENCING GOD

 through small community and developing a deeper understanding of

HIS LOVE FOR US. 

Having intentional conversations about God's story, and how that is

SHAPING OUR STORY.

THE BEST WEEK

OF YOUR LIFE!
