Richardson Area Young Life exists to introduce adolescents to Jesus Christ and help them grow in their faith. 



What is it about Young Life club that makes it the best night of the week for kids in Richardson? 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.


Campaigners is a weekly meeting for kids who wish to learn more or grow in their faith through study, service and leadership. Young Life leaders also encourage these kids to celebrate their faith through participation in a local congregation. 


Kids consistently tell us that Young Life camp is the best week of their lives. This summer 300 kids from Richardson will get to have the best week of their life at camp...will you be one of them? 

Loving kids regardless of their response. 

Young Life doesn't start with a program. It starts with an adult who is concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don't happen overnight - they take time, patience, trust, and consistency. We believe in the power of presence. Kids' are dramatically influenced when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God's love with them. Because their Young Life leader believes in them, they begin to see what their lives have great worth, meaning, and purpose. We believe in loving kids regardless of their response. 

If you don’t know Christ, you’re not living, you’re just moving.
