"Our highest priority in Young Life is to love kids in the name of Jesus, no matter who they are or what their story is. The most amazing part about being in Young Life is getting to watch how lives are changed as we all learn how to love and be loved."
Ellie Alberhasky, Area Director
Wyldlife - Junior High
Junior high ministry (grades 6th-8th) meets every other Friday morning at 7:00 a.m. at South East JH for "Club" and a free pancake breakfast. Club is a high-energy atmosphere where students are encouraged to play and enjoy being toghether. Wyldlife also meets regularly for Crew22--a student leadership team where kids are equipted to invite their peers, particpate in Club, and have meaningful conversation together. Another way to get involved with Wyldlife is through "DIG" (Deep in God). DIG is a Bible study and small group time. Wyldlife kids are anticipating an awesome All Night Bus Tour at the end of October, which is currently operating on a waitlist status. Contact the YLIC office to get on our waitlist today!
During the summer months, the fun continues! We sent 36 kids and leaders to Point11 on beautiful Table Rock Lake in MO from June 9-13, 2015. Stay tuned for details on summer camp for 2016!
Young Life - High School
High school (grades 9th-12th) ministry continues to thrive at both City High and West High. We welcomed James and Steph Tutson to the YLIC staff this summer to lead our high school ministries. Kids LOVE them and their energy is infectious. West meets on Monday evenings, and City meets on Wednesay evenings for "Club" and Monday evenings for "Campaigners," a Bible study and small group time. Fall Weekend is right around the corner! Click Here to go to our online registration page.
We also offer Summer Camp, Work Crew, and Adventure Camp as deeper relational experiences. In July 2015, we took 41 kids and leaders to Castaway Club in Detroit Lakes, MN and another group to Santa Cruz, CA.
