Young Life Leadership

"Who started the idea that Christians ought to have the seat of their pants in patches, or that we ought to have camps in tents? We talk about the King of Kings; lets act like He's the one in charge! We're going to get the classiest camps in the country."
  - Jim Rayburn, Ordained Presbyterian minister and the founder of Young Life (1909-1970)

Students in the Young Life Leadership minor at Colorado Christian University take courses in discipleship, cross-cultural ministry, and ministry leadership. This specialized program offered in conjunction with Young Life was the first of its kind in the country. Many CCU students already participate in the Young Life ministry, so they can take what they are learning in class and immediately apply it where they are serving. CCU faculty and members of the Young Life organization teach the courses.
