Young Life

Young Life and the Christian Spiritual Formation program have formed a partnership to develop emotionally and spiritually healthy leaders who have a solid foundation to serve with the mission of Young Life.  Through this partnership, we invite students who have a heart to grow spiritually and pursue the lost.
