reach these kids in a greater number every year.

Lead
Young Life Leaders are the Core of our Ministry with Kids
Young Life doesn't start with a program. It starts with adults
who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on
their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic
friendship. These relationships don't happen overnight — they
take time, patience, trust and consistency.
So Young Life leaders log many hours with kids — where they
are, as they are. We listen to their stories and learn what's
important to them because we genuinely care about their
joys, triumphs, heartaches and setbacks.
We believe in the power of presence. Kids' lives are
dramatically impacted when caring adults come alongside
them, sharing God's love with them. Because their Young Life
leader believes in them, they begin to see that their lives have
great 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 impact future
decisions … careers chosen, marriages formed and families
raised. All ripples from the time when a Young Life leader
took time to reach out and enter their world.
Committee
The Young Life committee is the lifeline for Young Life in Auburn. The
committee is a group of local adults who care about kids and are committed
to Young Life's mission to introduce adolescents to Jesus Christ and help
them grow in their faith. Committee is also active in supporting the local
Young Life ministry by fundraising, securing administrative resources and
encouraging staff.
Our committee is made up of several sub committees. Committee might
be the right fit for you if any of the following service niches/teams are
of interest:
Spiritual Development
•
prayer, church relationships, fellowship
Leadership Development
•
leader/volunteer care, recruiting, teambuilding, training
