God is at Work in Kansas City!
Greater Kansas City has grown dramatically in the last few years. We now have 65 ministries in 22 Young Life areas. This represents a 27% growth since 2014. Our goal is to reach 85 ministries by 2023.
On average, 2,396 kids attend Club each week in Greater KC and 6,353 kids attend Club at least once during the school year! Our goal is to average 4,000 kids attending Club by 2023.
Every week, 857 kids attend a small group Bible study. Our discipleship plan is to invest in the few to get the many. We are investing in young disciples who will then in turn make disciples. Through the implementation of a multiplication discipleship strategy, the leadership tree, and reproducible discipleship relationships, our goal is to have 10,000 kids engaged in Campaigners Bible studies and discipleship relationships by 2026.
Why Young Life is Worth the Investment
Our emphasis on relational ministry is evidenced by the fact that 14.7 million US adults participated in Young Life as a student and are still practicing their faith today—that’s 6% of all practicing Christians in the US! And 6% of all US pastors are Young Life Alumni!
Donors and alumni are raving fans of Young Life and leaders/staff are also very likely to recommend Young Life to others (89%+ rate it 8 out of 10 or higher) because kids meet Jesus and grow in their faith! Two-thirds of practicing Christians who are familiar with Young Life (even if they did not participate themselves) would recommend Young Life.
What sets Young Life apart is our commitment to authentic relationships with kids. In many cases, Young Life leaders are the only adult friends kids have in their lives.
Maximum Kingdom Bang for Your Earthly Buck
How can they call to Jesus for help if they have not believed? And how can they believe if they have not heard the message? And how can they hear if the message is not proclaimed? 15 And how can the message be proclaimed if the messengers are not sent out? - Romans 10:14-15
In order to go to kids, we need to be sent. A kingdom investment in Greater KC Young Life is a solid investment because your donation is helps us reach new kids, provide leadership, supervision, training, administration and resources to areas throughout Kansas City. It’s hard to emphasize enough how vital your support is to the ministry. We seriously cannot do it without you.
Thank you for all you do to help us reach generations of kids who desperately need to hear the message of hope—that they are loved and adopted into God’s family.
