Alamance County



“The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighborhood.” 
John 1:14, The Message

For the last 26 years in Alamance County, Young Life leaders have done the same. They have “moved into the neighborhood” of kids hoping to point them to the person who did it first. And when they get there, they get to share with them the best news there is: “You are loved. You matter. You were made for life to the full!” We hope you will enjoy this video that shares two of the many stories that have been impacted by the ministry of Young Life.

As the year closes, we’d love for you to consider a gift to Young Life. Would you consider making a year-end contribution to help us reach more kids with the wonderful news of a God who came near? Consider it a “down-payment” to ensure we are able to take up residence wherever kids live for years to come. We hope you know this...we couldn’t do it without your support!

Give Now

I vividly remember sitting in a Young Life Club as a high school Junior and hearing a leader read this verse. Even though I had grown up in church, it was like I was hearing the words for the first time. Thoughts flooded my adolescent mind… “God put on flesh...and moved into our world? How? And more importantly...why?” It’s often the same response we get when we share the message with our adolescent friends in Alamance County. But as they process the gravity of this one verse, we hope the idea of someone “moving into the neighborhood” rings a bell. It’s funny...when our Young Life leader read this verse, what they were describing sounded familiar. Week after week, I’d seen that leader at football games, in our lunch room, and really anywhere we were. They had “moved into the neighborhood” at my high school!
