Making An Impact

    Young Life in the Upper Cumberland has nine ministries: Cookeville High School, Livingston Academy, White County High School, Upperman High School, Avery Trace Middle School, Prescott South Middle School, Algood Middle School, Young Lives, and College Young Life. Young Life leaders are making a difference in kids' lives. Leaders make an effort to go where the students are by entering into their world and being an adult friend.

    For example, our leaders often have the sports schedules of the schools memorized. They know exactly who plays which position on the football team, and sometimes they are the only person besides parents cheering at a cross-country meet. Leaders make an effort to shop at the stores where their high school or college friends work, to be at important events like recitals and plays, and they can often be found having coffee or out to dinner celebrating a big success.

    These leaders earn the right to share their lives and the Gospel with their middle school, high school, or college friends. They are a great source of encouragement and care for these kids. In fact, many of our current leaders decided to become leaders because of the effect their Young Life leaders had on their lives. They are truly seeking to make a difference in the lives of their friends.
