Did you know we have a prayer strategy for the ministry of Young Life in Greater KC? Are you interested joining the Greater KC Young Life prayer team? If so, please contact us!

Prayer Requests

  • Pray for GKC as we transition from half of the Gateway Region to a new Region.

  • Pray for the Advisory Council as they seek to acquire sustainable funding for the Greater Kansas City ministry and serve local committees.

  • Pray for God to use Young Life to raise up more and more ordinary people in Kansas City who are loving Jesus, befriending kids who haven’t met Jesus yet, and raising up disciples of Jesus who have a vision for spiritual generations.

  • Pray that God will add to the Advisory Council people who will use their expertise, connections, resources and passion to move GKC forward.

Answers to Prayer

  • Independence (the third largest city in the State of Missouri) has launched Young Life for the first time in history and has hired a full-time Area Director, Bailey Higgins. She is awesome and this is a HUGE answer to prayer!

  • Staff throughout the city report feeling more valued, supported, encouraged and known.

  • The Greater KC office will finish the fiscal year (September 30th) in surplus. Praise God for generous donors who came together to make this happen!

  • Jay LaVergne, who began as our new admin in January, has been building new processes, strategies and rhythms to serve the 24 areas we oversee. She has been a huge gift to GKC Young Life!

  • Hundreds and hundreds of kids from all over Kansas City went to Young Life summer camp this summer, and many began a new relationship with Jesus. It is now our pleasure to walk alongside these kids as they learn what it means to follow Him.
