About us

What's Young Life All About?

The Mission of Young Life has been Introducing adolescents to Jesus Christ and helping them grow in their faith for over 60 years. We believe that every adolescent should have the opportunity to meet Jesus Christ and follow Him.

Young Life leaders enter the world of kids, focusing on what matters to them -- fun, friendship and significance. In doing so, we earn the privilege of talking to them about what matters most of all -- the truth about God and His love for them.

So What Does BBQ have to do with Young Life?

It might be hard to believe but BBQ roast beef sandwiches, turkey legs, and teriyaki meals translate into more young people hearing about God's love for them. When you volunteer 4 to 6 hours of your time you are helping your local Young Life area raise their budget that funds staff, volunteer leaders, weekly clubs, leadership training, and various other ministry expenses. The BBQ booths offer a great opportunity for you to gather up your friends and serve a shift together or it's a chance to meet new friends. When you serve a shift you are raising about $100 for your local area.
