Leader News

2017 Leader Draft Picks!

After ten weeks of rigorous training, a practical, exam, and panel interview, the team leaders met together to pray and decide where each leader would thrive. We then held our first ever NFL style Young Life Leader Draft!


     We had the privilege of placing three high school-aged students on our Wyldlife team and three college-aged leaders on our high school teams.



     We are so proud of our new leaders and all the work they have done throughout their training. They will be working closely with their teams, continuing to learn, while building relationships and trust with students.


     Pray for these new leaders as they walk onto campuses this year, modeling the life of Christ to students in the valley.

Leader Meetings

Working with volunteers is an opportunity to do the work Jesus did in His three years of public ministry.

Staff Associate and Area Director-in- training, Michael Pi, meets regularly with volunteer leaders twice a month on Sundays.

Michael facilitates meetings and discusses topics such as:

  • Prayer strategy,
  • Club,
  • Campaigners
  • Camp,
  • Area events, and
  • Fundraising

Training is an important part of meetings.

As needed, Michael updates leaders regarding the area and meets with leaders individually to provide guidance.
