Young Life Nashville

Mission Statement

Young Life believes every kid deserves the right to hear & experience life to full! YL Capernaum is a place where teenagers with disabilities can be a teenager! We like to laugh hard, play games, sing loud, build friendships, and share the Good News about Jesus. Our leaders spend time with kids through weekly gatherings (which we call “Club”), small groups, camp trips, and hang outs with a leader.

Young Life leaders go where kids are! So for now, as our Capernaum friends are at home on their devices, that’s exactly where we can be found. Our leaders have dropped off lunch on our friends’ doorsteps, done driveway dance parties, FaceTimed on lunch breaks, and laughed on Zoom Clubs and Small Groups. Teenagers with disabilities can find themselves socially isolated, even without ‘stay at home’ orders in place, and our leaders are determined to be in our Capernaum friends’ lives week after week to remind them of extraordinary love, deep hope, real truth, and life to the FULL!
