Greetings from Tim & Kathy Keller 
Tim and Kathy Keller of Redeemer Presbyterian Church share their unique experience with Young Life in New York City from Bill Milliken's leadership in launching it's presence in 1960's to the ongoing work Young Life leaders today who walk alongside city youth each day in their greatest time of need. Young Life's presence in the world's center of influence aims to meet kids while they're still "wet cement" and share a message of hope and belonging.

YoungLifeNYC - Building Local Impact

YoungLifeNYC Leaders in the News

According to The National Center For Fathering, there are more than 20 million kids in the United States that live in fatherless homes. Luckily, there are those who do more than their fair share.

Evan Waddy-Farr is a Young Life youth minister in The Bronx. To many kids, he is the male role model they need. In the absence of days set aside just for father figures, they decided to honor him for Father's Day — and it turned into a lesson in gratitude.

Young Life in the City

Young Life has a long history of working with Kids...we've been working with kids for over 70 years. We have ministries in all 50 states and in another 90 countries. We get to bring the skills and resources that we've learned and that we've trained in to care about kids specifically in New York City.
When caring adults come alongside sharing God’s love with them, kids’ lives are dramatically changed.
Meet Carolyn- A Young Life Leader
Young Life doesn’t start with a program. It starts with adults concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don’t happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency. Leaders faithfully engage kids in after-school programs in the Harlem, hang out with teenagers at a mall in Manhattan, or play pick-up basketball with at-risk youth in Queens. We listen to their stories and learn what’s important to them because we genuinely care about their joys, triumphs, heartaches and setbacks
We get the awesome privilege to “do” life with kids---and they get to see how believers respond with Jesus in every circumstance.
