We are VERY excited about helping to establish a South-Walton Young Life ministry.

What does Young Life believe?
Here is a link to their Statement of Faith
Is Young Life affiliated with a particular denomination?
Young Life is non-denominational and has been from the outset (1941). Therefore, we are not affiliated with any denomination, nor do we encourage one Christian denomination over another. Our staff and volunteers affiliate with a wide range of Christian denominations — both Protestant and Catholic.
How is Young Life funded?
Young Life is a non-profit organization, funded through the donations of individuals, foundations and businesses. The overwhelming majority of funding for Young Life ministry comes from individuals who want to make a difference in the lives of kids in their communities. Many of our supporters were involved in Young Life as kids, or know someone whose life has been significantly influenced by Young Life ministry.
How are donations used by Young Life?
Eighty-three percent of any gifts you make to Young Life stay right in your local area to support the ministry to kids there. The other 17 percent, known as the service charge, is sent to the Young Life Service Center and to the area’s corresponding regional office to fund technical and administrative services that serve local areas.
We hope you will join us in praying for the establishing of this wonderful and EFFECTIVE ministry here in South Walton County.
