Young Life doesn’t start with a program. It starts with adults concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship.

Mission to Missionaries
Mission to Missionaries (MTM) exists to serve missionaries who are home on furlough and provide them with some rest.
Campus Outreach exists to “glorify God by building laborers on the campus for the lost world.” CO’s vision comes from the passage, Matthew 9:35-38, where Jesus looks to the crowds and being moved by compassion tells his disciples, “the harvest is plentiful, by the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” Campus Outreach serves the campuses of 23 stateside regions, with multiple locations in each region, and also 13 international locations (with 20 more international locations requesting CO to send staff!). On these campuses, CO seeks to evangelize the campus by sharing the gospel within the dorms, greek chapters, and athletic teams of the individual campus, establish young or new believers in the gospel and foundational applications of the gospel to be a disciple and make disciples for a lifetime, equip students with the heart and tools for bringing the gospel to their peers, families, and the world, and export students into strategic post-grad opportunities for the good news of Christ to reach the ends of the earth whether that be into a full-time ministry position or through their attained degree. At each campus we serve, we partner and are under the authority of a local church whom we love and are committed to!
