What is Committee?

Each local area has a Committee of adults who believe in the mission of Young Life: to introduce adolescents to Jesus Christ and to help them grow in their faith. You'll find adults from all different backgrounds, careers and churches, including moms and dads who care about teens.

The Committee, comprised of parents, Young Life alumni and members of our community, provides a foundation of financial, administrative and moral support for the local Young Life team.

Ask your area staff person for a local list, and feel free to call these folks with your questions at any time.

Greater Lafayette Metro Committee


An Essential Foundation

The Metro Committee's purpose is to share responsibility for the ministry with the local Young Life staff and volunteers.  Roles include:  Praying for the ministry, raising funds to support the local budget and monitoring the area's financial affairs, promoting Young Life & WyldLife & Capernaum in the community, supporting and assisting staff and volunteers, and ensuring the integrity of the local ministry.  In Lafayette, our Metro Committee meets approximately once a month to discuss current ministry issues. 

Young Life & WyldLife in Greater Lafayette are making a difference in teen’s lives.  Each year Young Life recruits and trains adults and Purdue students and provides them with ministry leadership training that equips them to serve as Young Life & WyldLife Leaders.  Every Young Life & WyldLife Leader invests more than 12 hours each week in this ministry (and for many of our Leaders, much more)!

Young Life began in our area because of adults who shared Young Life’s vision and wanted to make a
difference in the lives of teens in Lafayette.
Young Life is sustained by adults serving locally and in communities across the United States and around the world, laying the groundwork of prayer and support for this dynamic ministry. They are unseen and unknown to most of the teens they serve, but these people—that is, you—are the foundation for successful ministry in our Young Life community.  An effective Committee is the lifeline for Young Life in Greater Lafayette. 
We need YOU!  In order for Young Life & WyldLife & Capernaum to be sustained in the Greater Lafayette area we are always looking for adults willing to share their gifts, talents and resources with us.  For more information on how you can get involved, please contact our local Young Life & WyldLife & Capernaum office at 765-429-8988.
