The Committee is the foundation for Young Life in a local area. In Carrollton, we have a host of great families that support Young Life through prayer, planning, fundraising, and telling others how God is using this ministry to make our community a better place one kid at a time.
Who is the Young Life Committee?
The Young Life Committee is comprised of caring adults; parents, Young Life alumni and community civic leaders, etc. that help provide administrative, financial and moral support for the local Young Life teams.
Each local area has a committee of adults who believe in the mission of Young Life: to introduce adolescents to Jesus Christ and to help them grow in their faith. You'll find adults from all different backgrounds, and careers, including some moms and dads who care about kids.
What does the Committee do?
The Young Life Committee is an active serving role. Committee members share ownership of the ministry with the local staff, metro director, and regional director. They also help oversee and support the following local Young Life ministries: Creekview Young Life, Hebron Young Life, Carrollton WyldLife (Blalack & Long MS), Carrollton Capernaum, Carrollton YoungLives, & coming soon...Hebron WyldLife (Killian, Arbor Creek, & Creek Valley MS) and The Colony Young Life.
