Been a busy season, accepting intern apps from around the state and beyond. Happy to let all YLI supporters know that this year's crop of young people ready to serve and live in Detroit for the Summer are stellar.
We'll have two great teams of Transforming Leaders and Motown Mission interns living in community together and working to serve God by serving others. One team will be coordinating Projects, Program, and Hospitality for Motown Mission weeks. The other will be helping launch a new neighborhood children's program with Metropolitan UMC in memory of Mary Ryckman - a long time member there and friend of us here at YLI who had a passion for nurturing young people in the faith and who passed away this past New Years.
All this, along with our record breaking numbers for Motown Mission (400 or so participants over 7 weeks!) will make Summer 2011 a real watershed year in the ministry life of YLI.
If you would like to support YLI by supporting one of our programs/projects I invite you to visit our Crowdrise page and either become a donor, or a viral fundraiser by starting your own project to support YLI.
Thanks and peace,
Mission of YLI
Engaging young people as missional leaders for the transformation of the church and world.
