Quest Leader Training.JPG
Young Life is an outreach ministry to adolescents.  Our mission is to introduce adolescents to Jesus Christ and help them grow in their faith. We do this by GOING WHERE KIDS ARE and BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS with them.  We invite them to weekly events that are FUN and INVITING and present the GOSPEL to them.  We spend time with adolescents and EARN THE RIGHT to tell them about a God who loves them. We take them away to beautiful YOUNG LIFE CAMPS where they have fun and adventure and hear about the LOVE OF JESUS.  As they make commitments to follow Jesus, they become part of our DISCIPLESHIP ministry called campaigners. 

We are a group of people who LOVE JESUS and LOVE EACH OTHER.  We LAUGH a lot, WORSHIP together, and STRATEGIZE about how to build relationships with adolescents.  We encourage each other and work together. We are committed to going after the FARTHEST OUT KIDS – those who would never set foot inside of a church. We want to reach adolescents in EVERY NEIGHBORHOOD in NYC with the good news of Jesus Christ.
