Sharing hope

changing lives

impacting generations

Now more than ever, hundreds of thousands of teens are looking for hope and belonging in the Baltics, Belarus, Central Asia, Russia, Ukraine, Armenia and Moldova.
They ask the same questions teenagers around the world ask:
Who am I? Do I matter? What's in my future?

We love them, introduce them to Jesus — and disciple the next generation of leaders.

god is planting beauty in Middle EurAsia through young life.

Since launching thirty years ago in Russia, the Young Life ministry has grown into 11 countries, reaching thousands of kids with the message of hope. It has been challenging, given the persistently tumultuous political and economic climate in that part of the world. But we believe in God’s ability always to raise beauty in place of hurt and pain. And thousands upon thousands of transformed lives is the living proof of this miracle.

“I was tired of being a people pleaser and living in anger and resentment. I wanted to be better. I wanted to grow. And I wanted Jesus to be my role model. I now know that my decision to invite Him into my heart was the most important decision of my life.“

Our leaders are in love with jesus more than anything else.

This is what has always been at the center of our work. They are deeply rooted in God’s Word, committed to their calling, often giving up better-paying jobs and putting themselves at risk. And they tirelessly and boldly share His love with the kids.
