In a town in Texas, at the request of his pastor, a young associate pastor named Jim Raybrun began showing young people how much God cares about them by showing up in their world and sharing the message of God's love through Jesus in ways and words they could understand and relate to.
Today, Young Life is a global organization with local focus. You'll find Young Life leaders from diverse cultures, nationalities and backgrounds in over 100 countries around the world.
In the fall of 1989, Jim Nelson accepted the position and came to Bradenton as an associate pastor and Young Life Church Partner. He began hanging out with kids in the church and meeting their friends. On February 26, 1990, the first outreach club started and has since reached thousands of kids and families with the Gospel.
Young Life has now become an integral part of the community and is continuing to grow and strengthen, reaching more and more kids who desperately need the love of Christ.
