Young Life

We have a unique opportunity for someone looking for a ministry position with the passion to be
a Christian missionary and mentor in a local community. Since Young Life began in Canada in
1954, its staff and volunteers have cared enough to leave the comfort of their adult worlds and
enter the arena of high school and middle school life. These trained Young Life leaders are
committed to friendships with kids – no strings attached. They go where teenagers are and
spend time in their world playing road hockey, going to the mall, watching a play or band
concert, hiking or skiing. Young Life leaders build bridges of friendship in order to “earn the right
to be heard.” We are all about communicating God's love and the Christian message to kids in
terms they can understand. Young Life values and respects all young people, and welcomes all
teenagers regardless of race or religious beliefs.
