​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Hundreds of our teens are experiencing 
fun, adventure, friendship & 
a sense of significance in Genesee County
For most kids, however, Young Life is simply a person — a person who knows their name and sees something in them that others may not. It's a person who keeps showing up, cheering when things are good and listening when they aren't. It's a person who has followed Jesus Christ into the world of kids, inviting them to more fun, adventure and life than they can imagine. 

Young Life invites you to be that person.

If you would like to join our team, please email sfrownfelter@genco.younglife.org​

Check out what WE did last summer!!



When was the last time YOU were THUNDERSTRUCK??

In the second chapter of Acts, The Message says that the "devout" came running after God when they heard the Holy Spirit descended on the apostles!

"They were thunderstruck. They couldn't for the life of them figure out what was going on ... That day about 3000 took him at his word, were baptized and were signed up. They committed themselves to the teaching of the apostles, the life together, the common meal, and the prayers ... Every day their number grew as God added those who were saved."

Lord, let us be THUNDERSTRUCK this year in Young Life!! May WE run to God! May we allow the Holy Spirit to move in the hearts and lives of youth all over Genesee County! 

I am thrilled when I consider the weeks and months to come. YL President Newt Crenshaw's vision of Forward is nothing short of inspiring - Deeper in Christ, Together, Innovation and Growth. 

To help us achieve those goals, we have hired three new staff:

Maryalice Taneyhill is heading up our Teacher in Mission​ initiative. She and her husband, Daniel, have been with Young Life for many years, but this is her first staff position.

Andrew Petts has joined the staff for WyldLife. He has just begun his second year on Student Staff, however, he has been ministering in Genesee County as a volunteer for several years.

Fred Jones has been hired for our Flint Urban outreach. 

I believe we are more ready than ever to touch, if not impact, the lives of more than 7800 youth in Genesee County. Jake Kirk and Maryalice are leading efforts for the 2787 teenagers in Linden/Lake Fenton/Fenton. Rob Leyder has already launched Campaigners in Grand Blanc with 15 high schoolers in attendance - and Club hasn't even started yet (Nov 6 for the 2660 students enrolled there this year!) Fred is meeting 1,100 kids at Flint's Northwestern and Southwestern high schools. Jailen Judson and Andrew are meeting daily with WyldLife from a combined pool of 1301 kids at Fenton and Lake Fenton middle schools.  

Please join us in praying for more leaders. Clearly, we need more people to help love all 7800 unconditionally! Soon we will be adding to our numbers and we must be ready!

I invite you to join our team on a Monday or Saturday night over the next few months! Clubs will be in full bloom. You really have to see it to believe it!

Of course, you also are invited to our 6am Campaigners in Linden, Lake Fenton or Grand Blanc! It's even a bit more staggering when we consider how they willingly attend simply to know more about Jesus!

May we ALL be THUNDERSTRUCK in days and weeks to come. 

In Him,

Sue Frownfelter,

Area Director

Thank you for helping us commemorate the life of sue mills!

 Our beloved friend and family member, Sue Mills, passed away a year ago in September. She served Young Life of Genesee County for nearly 15 years as office administrator, but so much longer as a volunteer leader and supporter.  After retiring from GM, Sue dedicated her life to working with Young Life, our non-profit, non-denominational organization that unconditionally loves and gives hope to youth all over Genesee County. She loved so many young people, yes, but she also so many adults blessed enough to know her - whether at church, her small group or the clerk at her favorite store. In her world, there were no strangers - only friends. We miss Sue's boundless enthusiasm, her smile that lights up a room, her warm and playful spirit. The location was thoughtfully chosen as Sue and friends walked the same path around Grand Blanc High School every Sunday night for nine years as she prayed, by name, for students all over Genesee County, but especially in the community where she lived. 
We will never forget you Sue ... ​​​​​​
