Young Life South DC
In Anacostia, kids often have to grow up quickly. Young Life works worldwide to introduce adolescents to Christ and help them grow in their faith, has seen that a lot of the issues that suburban kids deal with in high school come up in middle school in the inner city.
National has helped start full-time Young Life discipleship clubs at Kramer Middle School in downtown Anacostia, and Cornerstone Christian School in the Fort Dupont neighborhood.
Young Life is an inspiration to many of the young men and women at both schools, and an encouragement to the faculty and parents who are guiding them as they grow up. A new full-time staff member in Southeast will begin this year, and National is supporting another new chapter on Capitol Hill. Please pray for DC’s middle schoolers to encounter Jesus as their risen Lord.
