For more than 75 years, Young Life has demonstrated a steadfast commitment to introducing adolescents to Jesus Christ and helping them grow in their faith.
The Gateway Region of Young Life serves adolescents in 40 different communities throughout Missouri, Eastern Kansas, and Eastern Nebraska. We are currently developing Young Life in 10 new communities. In the past year 10,000 students attended Young Life, Wyldlife, Capernaum, or Young Life College Clubs in our region. Our staff and 729 volunteer leaders know over 26,000 kids by name. More than 1,400 students are involved in weekly Campaigner Bible studies and discipleship programs.

Young Life leaders have been investing time with teenagers to build lasting friendships and to help them consider the eternal direction of their lives.

One of Young Life's newest camps opened in 2016 in Lampe, MO on Tablerock Lake. It is called Clearwater Cove. Already, it has become a world class camp where teenagers are experiencing God's great affection for them.

Single Purpose

This Young Life region exists to provide leadership for the Young Life areas that comprise it. Although Young Life exists in communities that are different from one another, Young Life's purpose is the same: We want to give kids hope for the future.

“I never thought life could be so amazing, but it can be a lot better with Jesus in your life, three leaders who are so much more than leaders because they are best friends, and even more great friends to help you out along the way.” – Jarod
