I am on Young Life Staff and all I can say is we are human! We need Jesus just as much as the kids we are ministering to! I hate to hear some of the negative stories but I do know it comes with everything in all shapes and sizes I see it in other places to. But Young Life has impacted my ways in several different times- as a club kid in middle and high school to a volunteer leader and then married a staff guy after college! Now I am on staff and I will give this Non-profit a top notch for its involvement with women on staff! We are supported and encouraged! When I had my first child my boss helped me figure out ways so I could stay on staff and still do my part time job! I love hanging out with my high school friends, getting to know them and share with them about Jesus who loves them more than I ever could!!! I see Jesus working in kids lives daily- it is awesome as well as I see Him working through school teachers, youth ministers in our town, etc... We have a vision for the kingdom of Jesus and the kids in the MS Delta our trying not only to change their schools but community as well- trying to live out what a relationship with Jesus on this journey! Young Life may not be the right experience for everyone- but for kids in our community! We love them as they are and welcome them in! If they choose something else we still love them and encourage them to get involved with their local church!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I was a club kid, college volunteer and now on direct ministry staff. It was a place I could come and learn about Jesus and bring my friends that were non Christians with me!
