Help us spread the word to our friends and family in the City of Flint and Beecher! They HAVE TO COME AND JOIN THE FUN!

Flint's Urban Club starts Monday, Oct 2, at Bethel United Methodist Church, 7:11pm! We will meet for Club every Monday night thereafter. Campaigners on Thursday nights at Bethel, 7:06pm. Bethel is located at 1309 N. Ballenger Hwy, Flint.

Genesee County's Multiethnic Young Life is our ministry serving kids of color and kids from under-resourced communities. Many of these kids often feel misunderstood and neglected and are being raised in environments where hope for the future is sometimes limited.

​Multiethnic Young Life leaders identify with the community they serve and adapt ministry work to fit the needs of the kids. Multiethnic camp weeks are also a crucial part of this unique Young Life ministry. From small, rural communities to the heart of the inner city, Young Life seeks to bridge the gap and reach this generation with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

IMG_7967.jpgMy Vision for Flint

Hello, my name is Fred Jones, and I was born and raised in the wonderful city of Flint, MI. Now, don’t get me wrong. I’ve been extremely blessed to have had the opportunity to travel and live in other States, and even other countries. While in the Marine Corps, I visited such places as Japan, Hawaii, Australia and the Philippines. I have also traveled to and lived in California, Houston, Traverse City, Bahamas and Mexico.

In 1991, after years of “riotous living,” I came to myself, as did the “Prodigal Son!” It was then that I humbly accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior!

I officially rejoined Young Life of Genesee County on Aug 15, after doing extensive volunteer work and special assignment contact work! My love for God and my concerns for the lives of very misguided young people, have grown immeasurably in the past few years! My wife, Janice, and I look forward to sharing the Love of Christ with them in ways they’ve never experienced!

Our passion is to teach, equip and empower every young person that crosses our path by sharing and demonstrating the liberating power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

Our plan is to grow disciples weekly, and witness their transformation from mediocrity, and merely existing, to strong, effective and productive young men and women!

Is God calling you to minister full time to this population of teenagers? Prayerfully consider volunteering with our Multiethnic staff in Genesee County. Our volunteer leaders spend time each week getting to know kids on their turf. Because kids don't care how much you know till they know how much you care, Young Life leaders show they care by going where kids are, meeting them as they are, believing in who they can be. And because some of these kids don’t often have the basics of life, Multicultural Young Life needs folks who can provide transportation to and from club and, sometimes, food before or after club.
What is it about Young Life club that makes it the best night of the week for thousands of kids every week? We like to think of it as a party with a purpose. It’s controlled chaos that’s almost impossible to describe, but kids know it when they see it. And before the party ends, we share a simple message about God’s love for them. After all, that’s what the celebration is all about.
Kids consistently tell us that Young Life camp is the best week of their life. That’s a rousing (and unsolicited) endorsement! But how else would you describe a week where deep relationships are forged in the midst of mind-boggling fun and where you experience and listen to what we believe is the greatest love story ever told?
Campaigners (a name that points back to the early days when Young Life was known as “The Young Life Campaign”) is a weekly meeting for kids who wish to learn more or grow in their faith through study, service and leadership. We consistently see kids’ lives changed in the process as they encounter Jesus Christ. Young Life leaders also encourage these kids to celebrate their faith through participation in a local congregation.
Leadership Opportunities
High school kids may be selected for monthlong sessions during the summer to serve at Young Life camps as part of the work crew. They help make sure camp is an unforgettable experience for the campers by doing things like serving meals, washing dishes, doing yard work, folding laundry and cleaning cabins. They also delve deeper into their own faith and serve alongside other kids from all around the country and the world.

Young Life leaders may consider a high school kid a potential leader for WyldLife, the ministry to middle school kids. As a WyldLife leader, they’ll build friendships with middle school kids and go to WyldLife events and camp.

Under the direction of their leader, Campaigner kids are often asked to take on a leadership role within their own Young Life club.

Giving of your time is crucial, but financial resources are what keep Young Life's Multiethnic ministry in the lives of kids who need Jesus Christ. Multiethnic Young Life needs the support of those willing to give financially, as well as those who want to serve on the area's Young Life of Genesee County's Committee and represent the interests of Multiethnic Young Life in the Flint area.
