Davie County Young Life

Adult Volunteer Leader

For the last 11 years, Davie County Young Life has invested in the lives of students here in our own community. Those years have been full of excitement and changed lives.

By meeting students where they are, Young Life aims to demonstrate the love of Christ to every adolescent and offer opportunities for students to see the full joy of life with Jesus.

Those same years also included a pandemic, which drastically altered the day-to-day lifestyle of teenagers. That season brought many challenges to all of us, including ministry organizations like Young Life. Through prayer, the hard work of leadership, countless volunteer hours, and support, Davie County Young Life has continued to invest in the lives of students.

Young Life meets every Monday night at 7:27 for “Club” (a high-energy, large-group event) or “Campaigners” (a deeper-dive, discussion-based gathering) on alternating weeks. Each week, more than 60 high school students gather at “The Farm” to laugh, learn, and build deeper community.

Young Life is truly honored to serve Davie County and it’s people, and hopes to do so for many years to come.

As part of Young Life’s ministry in Davie, the organization hosts an annual fundraising banquet. This year’s event will be Tuesday, Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. at Calvary West in Bermuda Run.

Attending this banquet is the perfect opportunity to learn more about Davie Young Life, enjoy dessert and coffee from local vendors, and even enjoy a magic show. All proceeds from the banquet go toward DCYL’s operating budget. Your participation enables Young Life to continue introducing kids to Jesus and helping them grow in their faith.

Direct questions to the banquet coordinator, Courtney Rowe (c3rowe@gmail.com) or DCYL Area Director, TJ Sigler (tjsigler7@gmail.com), or sign up to attend online at daviecounty.younglife.org/events.
