10801541_841282429295367_6904343124159153215_nOur ministry starts with adults who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, where they are, as they are, and build bridges of authentic friendship. These friendships don’t happen overnight, they take time, patience, trust and consistency.

Young Life leaders log many hours with kids. We listen to their stories and 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. Because their Young Life leader believes in them, they begin to see that their lives have 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 all rippling out from the time when a Young Life leader took time to reach out and enter their world.

As a region of Young Life, we equip and support the areas we work with. We equip, train and encourage the hundreds of leaders and staff who do the direct ministry with kids. We do this by providing leadership, fostering community and encouraging growth in both our leaders and areas committees.

We believe one of the ways we can encourage the people in our region is to provide a centralized space for storytelling. So, this site will be dedicated to telling our story as we remember just how beautiful it is when the love of Jesus impacts the life of a kid because a leader took the time to “be there.”
