Hi, I’m Rob “Crock” Crocker. I’m in my 28th year on Young Life staff, and my 3rd year in Durham/Chapel Hill. Young Life is currently in 10 local high schools and 3 middle schools. Young Life is a Christian outreach to both high school and middle school students, best defined as “organized chaos”, a fun way to communicate the Gospel to adolescents.

Young Life in Durham, Chapel Hill, Hillsborough and Pittsboro has 2 full-time and 3 part-time staff and more than 60 volunteer leaders who spend time with students and serve the school communities in our area. We are also supported by a committee of nearly 30 adults who are committed to giving students the opportunity to hear the Good News. The adults on our committee raise funds, pray, provide meals and places to meet for our volunteer leaders and the students they spend time with.

This fall, please pray as staff and leaders meet and spend time with high school and middle school students at football games, in cafeterias, at Starbucks and many other places wherever students go. Pray for weekly Young Life club meetings as leaders make students laugh and share the Good News of the Gospel. Pray for weekly “Campaigners” meetings where leaders will study the Bible with students who want to know more about Jesus and the full life He offers.

Please pray for our monthly  Wyldlife (ministry to middle school students) outreach meetings and for our outreach weekend with high schoolers to Rockbridge, a YL Camp in Virginia.

Pray for our Young Life staff and committee members as they lead volunteers, raise money to support the ministry going on, and are ambassadors for Christ to the community. Please also pray for our finances as we work to raise our annual budget.

We are grateful for your prayers and partnership!

Anchored in hope,

Crock
