THE FIRST YOUNG LIFE LEADER MANUAL (1942)
Q. Why should we do Young Life?
Q. Aren’t there other organizations out in the world sharing the gospel?
Q. What does healthy Young Life ministry look like?
These were all questions that Jim Rayburn (founder of Young Life) and other staff explored in 1942 at a staff gathering. These questions are still ones we ask today in all sorts of contexts. Regardless of time passing, much of what Jim shared here is helpful for us in Young Life. It’s a good reminder to help us know our role as leaders, boards, community peers, and representatives of the ministry.
