Our mission is to introduce adolescents to Jesus Christ and to help them grow in their faith.
We have a lot of fun along the way!
What We Do
Caring for Kids
Because kids don’t care how much you know till they know how much you care, Young Life leaders show they care by going where kids are, meeting them as they are, believing in who they can be. Within Young Life we call the persistent going out into the world of kids “contact work.” But kids just call it friendship.
The Best Week of their Life
Kids consistently tell us that Young Life camp is the best week of their life. That’s a rousing endorsement! But how else would you describe a week where deep relationships are forged in the midst of mind-boggling fun and where you experience and listen to what we believe is the greatest love story ever told?
Party with a Purpose
What is it about Young Life club that makes it the best night of the week for thousands of kids every week? We like to think of it as a party with a purpose. It’s controlled chaos that’s almost impossible to describe, but kids know it when they see it. And before the party ends, we share a simple message about God’s love for them. After all, that’s what the celebration is all about.
Question, Learn, and Grow
A weekly gathering for kids who wish to learn more or grow in their faith through study, service and leadership. We invite kids to actively follow Jesus — and we’re with them for the long haul to help them take those steps of faith. Along the way, we encourage kids to celebrate their faith through participation in a local congregation.
