​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​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.

       We are grateful for the strong support of Young Life of Genesee County. This year’s banquet was arguably the largest we have had in our 50+ year history in Genesee County. Nearly 400 people joined us to learn about our expanding outreach in Grand Blanc, Fenton, Flint, Lake Fenton and Linden. With four full-time and two part-time staff, we are now maximizing our presence with teams of nearly 50 volunteer leaders who meet every single day with hundreds of youth all over Genesee County.

      When Father Gregory Boyle notified us that he was unable to speak at our banquet, we worried about how many would still attend! His replacements that evening - two former gang members from Father Boyle’s Homeboys Industries - only underscored the critical importance of relational ministry. Father Boyle’s unconditional love for Jose Arellano and Joseph Curiel changed their lives – and, that night, impacted ours, too.

      Young Life of Genesee County has a goal: we want to touch if not impact every kid in Genesee County’s middle schools & high schools with the UNCONDITIONAL love of God. So many of our young people are in crisis, turning to drugs, alcohol and violence to minimize their loneliness and pain. I am so pleased with the progress we are making in the five districts we serve, but the need is just as great in other communities as well. We receive inquiries regularly from individuals in Flushing, Davison, Swartz Creek, Westwood Heights and beyond.

      Of course, we are limited by our resources. Young Life of Genesee County is asking for you to prayerfully consider donating time, talent or treasure to help us reach every young person in our county. We have included a pledge card from the banquet with this mailing. Any financial pledges made in the next two weeks will be included in a 30 percent match made by generous donors who are committed to do everything they can to help our youth in crisis.

      I firmly believe such labors of love attract community. This year's banquet confirmed that for me. Working together with those who attended, those who couldn't - those we have not yet met - holds out the only real possibility of expanding the Kingdom in our area and offering true friendship and a sense of community to our youth and partners in ministry. 

      We hope you will join us in Young Life’s labor of love and help expand the Kingdom with God’s unconditional love for our youth. Thank you! ​

Help 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. We hope this Memorial Walk will bring us all together to commemorate a life we all sorely miss. 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. 
Please sign up below or call the office at 810.391.2189. We would like to have an accurate count for the picnic following the walk.
