Young Life sessions now on campus
Are you looking for a way to make a difference in your community and even around the world? Do you want to meet new people and play games? Do you want to participate in a weekly Bible study? UALR Young Life may be for you.
Young Life is an international organization- in over 72 countries around the world.
Young Life at UALR was started three years ago by a group of students- Ellen Brown, Art Slaton and Melissa Jones.
It is a church-based group in which you attend fun activities and events and also participate in service work. While attending a Young Life gathering you can expect to be welcomed with open arms. When the students meet, they play games, do a devotional lessons, talk about the lessons, watch video clips, get to know other college students, and learn more about God and His purpose.
“The purpose of Young Life is to help students explore who they are and who God is and how that might all work together. It’s a safe place for students to be themselves and to be accepted in the context of a community where people from all segments of the campus can interact with one another,” said Young Life leader Jud Jones.
Jones became a Young Life leader 33 years ago because he felt “it was the best way for me to have an impact on my community and hopefully the world.” He now leads UALR Young Life group, which meets Sunday nights at 9 p.m. in the DSC Leadership Lounge.
There is also a large group that meets on Friday’s at noon in the Leadership Lounge, where you can hang out with other students and mingle and talk about God and what is happening in your life. Young Life is open for everyone.
