We're Glad You're Here

Since 2006, we have been blessed with having volunteer leaders from the area spend hundreds of hours every year building relationships with high school students.  We currently have Young Life leaders at Camdenton High School, Macks Creek High School, and State Fair College Campus but are interested in pursuing ministry within other high schools, middle schools and colleges within the area.

Young Life leaders each week go to the high school, middle school and college campuses to meet students on their turf. Volunteers can be found in the lunch room, at practices or games, at the skate park or anywhere an adolescent kid is found.  Young Life is about adults "going where kids are" and "earning the right to be heard." 
 
I want to personally invite you to check us out and how it is impacting high school students in Camdenton.  If you want to know more about getting involved or starting Young Life in another school, check out the area contact information on the left. 
 
I would love to hear from you as we continue to reach our goal of reaching every kid, everywhere, for eternity.

For Every Kid, 

Adam Van Dam
Area Director
WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING...
"I love that everyone can get together on Monday nights. I love the Atmosphere. It starts at 7:27 pm  but I show up by 6pm because i'm so pumped to turn that one hour into a few hours of fun! " -Adam
"Young Life is like a family to me.  It takes all independent groups and allows us to come together and be one.  It allows us to grow deeper in our faith and build new relationships with other high sc​​​​hoolers." - Alex 
"we go to Young life so we don't live the thug life- LOL" -Macks Creek Peeps
"Young Life is a place for teens to have a blast without all the partying.  Some come already as a believer in Jesus, and some don't but either way, no matter who you are - you are loved.  It's not a place where you are forced to believe but if you are ready to take that step, the leaders are there to help you." - Dennis
"keep Calm  and pray on!" -syd



We have an awesome opportunity for adults in the community who would like to see one piece of what we do to share the love of Jesus with our high school friends. We have Club every Monday evening at 7:27pm. We can't really explain club, it just has to be experienced! We have an adult guest area, above the chaos, where you can watch what goes on. 
If you are interested in this unique opportunity, contact Adam VanDam

 The Gift of Eternity

We NEED you to reach the next kid with the life changing love of Jesus.  Prayer, People and Money are the never ending needs of any ministry.  It's interesting how God has designed us to participate in what He is doing.  Please help us reach a world of lost kids.  YOU are what makes the difference.  Please contact us with any questions.
