College Ministry

In an effort to recruit and develop the future leaders of Louisville Young Life we created a Young Life presence on the University of Louisville Campus ministering to college students. A team of seasoned, post-college adults with experience as former YL leaders create an environment where college students can explore the Christian faith in a safe and accepting environment, continue growing in their faith and pursue the possibility of becoming a YL leader while they make the (sometimes difficult) transition to life in college. 

We believe that providing a safe place for them to make friends, grow in their faith, ask questions, and learn what it means to be a YL leader over the course of 6-8 months will ​set them up to be valuable and committed members of the ministry once they are placed on a leadership team and begin working with students.

A curriculum of bible study, mentoring by an adult, quality friendships and practical training will benefit the students to get their feet firmly planted in college and discern if Young Life or some other ministry is right for them.

Meetings are held at the University of Louisville but students from Bellarmine, Boyce, Spalding and other schools are welcome to be part of it.

What students are saying...

 "I look forward to college fellowship all week. We always have a great time laughing and having fun. However, it's equally balanced with the awesome truths we discover in our Bible study discussion. I feel like college fellowship has been incredibly influential on my faith and walk with Christ." - Josie, UofL Sophomore
