Making An Impact

The role of a Young Life Leader:
Leaders are committed to being involved in kids' lives -- from supporting them at their sporting events to listening to them talk about their hopes, dreams, fears & insecurities. Our leaders help kids consider the direction of their lives and they offer them hope for their future.
Leaders love hanging out with kids whether it's at a sporting event, after school in the parking lot, talking over a cup of coffee or playing video games.  We desire to share in their lives and for them to share in ours. Leaders spend tons of time entering the adolescent world of students in hopes of building meaningful friendships with them.  These leaders are well trained, mature Christian role models for students. 
 We believe that what a person believes about God is one of the most important decisions they will ever make, and that every student deserves to hear the good news that God loves them and wants to have a relationship with them.  We desire to share this with students in a fun, "no pressure" way through Young Life activities and ultimately through our relationships with them.  Leaders are also committed to loving and caring for students regardless of what they may decide about God or religion.
"As apostles of Christ, we could have been a burden to you, but we were gentle among you, like a mother caring for her children.  We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you, not only the Gospel of God, but our lives as well because you had become so dear to us." 1Thess 2:6-8
