The Young Life Committee​
 In 1939 a group of women gathered across from the high school in Gainesville, Texas, to pray that the kids in their community would hear about Jesus Christ. Though they didn't know it, those women were the first Young Life committee.

That same work continues on Young Life committees today. Members of a Young Life committee are adults who are committed to providing every kid in their community the opportunity to hear about Jesus Christ in terms they can understand. Committee members pray for Young Life, promote the ministry in the community, care for the local staff and volunteer leaders, as well as ensure the financial health of the ministry. The committee is an essential foundation of Young Life in any town.
