Overview 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.

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 story ever told?

Young Life has been in Shoreline/North City since the late 1960s. We currently have club at both Shorewood and Shorecrest high schools as well as a combined WyldLife club for Kellogg and Einstein middle schools. There are currently 22 volunteer leaders serving at these four schools. There is an active committee of 12 volunteers who help oversee the area. There are about 200 kids in weekly attendance of our various Young Life and WyldLife clubs. In the summer of 2016 we took 160 of our teenaged friends to camp. We have multiple Campaigners groups that volunteer leaders run on a weekly basis for both middle school and high school-aged students. Many of our high school students are finding meaningful ways to serve in student leadership roles and helping run our WyldLife clubs and camps.

VISION

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.

• Recruit, train, and deploy nine new leaders: » Two for Shorecrest. » Two for Shorewood. » Five for WyldLife. • Take 200 high school and middle school students to Young Life camps during summer 2017.

Story

Hi, I’m Nick! I grew up in the Pacific Northwest. I like coffee in the morning and views of water or mountains for the rest of the day. I read a lot, constantly quest for the best cheese I can find, enjoy anything that resembles the lifestyle of a hobbit, and I have wonderful friends and community that I cherish. I met Jesus in high school and that changed everything. I went from a world of insecurity, fear, self-loathing, isolation and insurmountable brokenness into a place where I knew that the God of the universe loved me. I found out that God loved me enough to show up here on Earth for me and then die for me when I had done nothing to deserve it. This good news saved my life and gave me purpose, hope, community and more joy than I ever imagined possible. I knew that this news had to be spread. I knew that others needed this freedom and love that I had found, so I jumped into youth ministry. I wanted to ensure that no kid ever felt stuck in loneliness and brokenness like I did before I knew Jesus. I have been doing youth ministry for a decade now with half of that as a volunteer and half of that working at a church. I attended Seattle Pacific University and studied psychology as an undergraduate and then went back to get my Masters in Divinity so that I would be better equipped to pursue ministry. Now I have been invited to join Young Life and have been given an even larger platform to introduce teens to the good news of Jesus Christ, and I could not be more excited! I believe in planting roots, and my roots are in the Edmonds/Shoreline area. I love the people here and have been digging into the Shoreline community these past five years. I feel a call from Jesus to minister where I live and to minister with my whole life. I am the Young Life Area Director in Shoreline because I love this place and I love the kids here. This is my home and I want to see people meet Jesus here! Now I have the best job ever. I get to share the gospel and invite teens in the community I love to know Jesus! I get to invite teenagers into freedom and life in Christ so that they can have abundant lives.

• Strategically place consistent club kids into Campaigners groups, grow Campaigners attendance by 50 percent. • Increase weekly club attendance by 20 percent. • Hire a part-time WyldLife director.
