Young Life Leader Scott Beesley
How has serving students as a Young Life leader impacted your life?
I thought Young Life would give me the opportunity to get to know my lacrosse players on a deeper level, and it has, but that is just the beginning. Young Life has an exceptional group of leaders that I am so grateful to call my friends.
We come from all different backgrounds and from a variety of different professions, but we bond like we’ve known each other for years. Young Life has strengthened my faith and helps keep God on the forefront of my thoughts and actions. I am so glad that I was called to be a leader.
What would you tell someone who is interested in being a Young Life leader in the lives of kids?
Take the leap of faith! It is an amazing experience to mentor teenagers. You don’t need to have all the answers; you just need to have a heart for serving the Lord. I am constantly impressed by the number of teens that show up every week and the desire they have to know more about God’s plan in their life. Young Life has changed my life, and I am positive it can change yours too.
