Mission & Vision of Young Life

The vision of Young Life​ is that every adolescent will have the opportunity to meet Jesus Christ and follow Him. Asian Young Life's role in this vision is to develop and use culturally sensitive ministry methods to impact the lives of Asian American teenagers and to, thus, broaden and diversify the kinds of teenagers that Young Life is able to reach.

  • Sharing our lives and the Good News of Jesus Christ with adolescents.
  • Inviting them to personally respond to this Good News.
  • Loving them regardless of their response.
  • Nurturing teens so they might grow in their love for Christ and the knowledge of God's Word and become people who can share their faith with others.
  • Helping young people develop the skills, assets, and attitudes to reach their full God-given potential.
  • Encouraging teens to live connected to the Body of Christ by being an active member of a local church congregation.
