Young Life is a charter member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) and has maintained that membership through a yearly review of its compliance with the ECFA’s standards.

Young Life was incorporated in 1941 by Jim Rayburn, a seminary student and part-time youth minister in Gainesville, Texas, who wanted to reach out to kids disinterested in church. Rayburn went where kids were and found creative ways to share the love of God with them. His methods continue to transform lives today.

WHAT IS YOUNG LIFE? CONTACT WORK

Because kids don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care, Young Life leaders show they care by going where kids are, meeting them as they are, and believing in who they can be. Within Young Life we call the persistent going out into the world of kids “contact work.” But kids just call it friendship.

“I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh. Then they will follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. They will be my people, and I will be their God.” — Ezekiel 11:19-20

CLUB

We like to think of club as a “party with a purpose.” It’s controlled chaos that’s almost impossible to describe, but kids know it when they see it. And before the party ends, we share a simple message about God’s love for them. After all, that’s what the celebration is all about.

CAMP

Kids consistently tell us that Young Life camp is the best week of their lives. How else would you describe a week where deep relationships are forged in the midst of mind-boggling fun and you hear the greatest love story ever told?

CAMPAIGNERS

Campaigners is a weekly gathering for kids who wish to learn more or grow in their faith through study, service and leadership. We’re with kids for the long haul to help them take the first steps of faith with unconditional love. Along the way, we encourage kids to celebrate their faith through participation in a local church congregation.

NICK’S STORY

When I was in high school, I always felt like I needed to fit in; I did everything to try and be liked by others. When I went to Young Life, I saw that I was not just liked, but loved just for being myself. Once I decided I wanted Jesus to be the focus of my life, I began volunteering as a Young Life leader and a WyldLife team leader in college. Two years into college, my role changed as I stepped down as WyldLife team leader and focused on being a Young Life leader with a group of guys God put on my heart. After I graduated college, I was hired as a summer intern at Castaway Club as a cook, which is where I met my fiancée. After that incredible experience, I got a job with Urban Ventures as an assistant chef. I was there for 1.5 years before I felt God open doors to have me serve full time in the SWTC Young Life. I am so excited to start this position because I will have a new challenge in my professional life, I get to grow in depth and knowledge with Jesus, and I have the opportunity to speak the truth to students who are disinterested in Jesus. I have been a part of Young Life for over seven years either as a volunteer or on staff. My Young Life leader saw the potential in me as we grew close. Going into leadership, I want to be able to do the same with students at Minnetonka High School. God has shaped me as a man, given me my best friends, and has greatly impacted my life through the avenue of Young Life. I am humbled and honored to step into full-time ministry in Minnetonka.

AREA OVERVIEW Young Life in the Southwest Twin Cities is made up of four primary communities: Eden Prairie, Minnetonka, Chanhassen and Chaska. We are very present in Eden Prairie High School, and I have come on to head the development of the Minnetonka High School. We have an area-wide WyldLife club fully running, and we are starting up Capernaum club this next year. Our area has two full-time staff and one part-time administrator along with 15 volunteer leaders serving Young Life club. The majority of our adult leaders are working professionals and a few are college students. We have a great committee of 10 adults from the community committed to making Young Life in the SWTC healthy, thriving and expanding.
