Young Life's mission is to introduce adolescents to Jesus Christ and helping them grow in their faith. 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. Our leaders pray for young people, go where kids are, build relationships with them, win the right to be heard, provide experiences that are fun, adventurous, and life-changing... all in the hopes of sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ. All of these things enable young people develop the skills, assets and attitudes to reach their full God-given potential.
