What is Committee?​

Each local area has a committee of adults who believes 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 lots of moms and dads who care about kids.

The committee, comprised of parents, Young Life alumni and civic leaders, 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.



An Essential Foundation

Committee is the foundation for Young Life in a local area. Oftentimes, new Young Life clubs start because of the interest and awareness created by the Committee. We also welcome the involvement of adult Young Life alumni, whose enthusiasm about their Young Life experiences is valuable to a Committee.

In Frederick County--we are always looking for more adults to join our Committee. We plan, promote and pray for this ministry, partnering with our staff. We meet once a month, or more often during major events.

If you are interested in helping strengthen the foundation of Young Life in Frederick County, don't hesitate to contact us.  Chances are, there's a place for you on Committee!  Just call our Committee Chair Pat Shoemaker (240)315-5895 or Mike McGregor (443) 804-7890!
