"And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus."
- Philippians 4:19
Leader Spotlight
Micaela Howell, Beechcroft High School
What is the best part about leading Young Life?

Being friends with girls at Beechcroft and sharing God with them. Also, serving with a team that has a heart for high schoolers and loves each other well
What is your favorite Young Life memory?
My favorite Young Life memory is camp with girls, especially 80's night! (photo above)
How have you seen Beechcroft grow since you began leading?
I've seen one of our girls, Dorica, grow in her faith through tough times. Also, our campaigner kids have grown in their faith and have gotten more vulnerable with each other 
#1 prayer request right now?
For God to give me a huge, broken heart for the school and for girls who need to know the Lord, that I stay motivated and remember why I serve Him
Ministry Update
  • We've raised enough money needed to take eight moms and their children to YoungLives camp this summer! YoungLives was awarded a grant for $5,000 and raised another $2,750 through their first annual Bunco Night. Our YoungLives mentors are now able to focus their efforts on helping these young moms overcome obstacles and prepare to experience one of the best weeks of their lives. Thank you!
  • All six high school ministries are running campaigners on a weekly basis and club will begin across the area on February 26. Please pray for those direct interactions and opportunities with kids. 
From one of CCYL's high school students, on healing...
"The story of the bleeding woman is very relatable to me. For most of my life, I felt like something was wrong with me and I did everything to try to fix it, just like the bleeding woman. But, as soon as I had enough courage to take a leap of faith and trust in Jesus, I was cured instantly and I know Jesus is incredibly happy for that!" - Noah, Centennial High School
