Drew Hill

In December of 2010 Drew started this blog in an effort to provide leaders with resources and connect them to one another. It has now grown into a resource visited by tens of thousands of Young Life leaders from around the world each week.

When visiting the blog, you can expect to see around 3 or 4 new posts each week. The posts vary between practical club tips, encouraging stories, random contact work ideas, and guest posts from people like you. Before we post anything, we ask the question: "Is this helpful or encouraging for leaders?" 

If you have anything you would like to see on this site, please leave a comment on the blog, TwitterFacebookInstagram, or send us an old-fashioned email. If you have an idea or post you think other leaders could benefit from, let us know!

You can also subscribe to get the blog updates emailed to you through the link on the right of the page. Please feel free to share this site with other leaders in your area.

You can also check out Drew's upcoming book "Alongside: Loving Teenagers with the Gospel." It is being released by New Growth Press on August 20th. You can join the launch team here.

Drew's YL'd Ride

My adventure with YL began in 1995 during my senior year at West Forsyth High School (home of Chris Paul, best point guard in the NBA.)

I couldn't stand Young Life. For real, I hated it. I was a self-righteous church kid who didn't think lost people should be allowed to be part of a Christian club. One night my youth pastor taught on Luke 15 (the lost parables) and invited us to make a "prayer list" with names of 10 of our lost friends. I couldn't do it. All my friends lived in my Christian bubble, where it was safe and cool to put a bible verse on the back of your letter jacket. 

That night God began to break down the judgmental walls in my heart and soon after I began to understand the mission of YL. In January of 1996, I went to my first YL camp at Windy Gap. God used my YL leaders and a camp speaker whose name I can't recall to reveal to me the gospel in a way that changed me. 

The next fall I entered The University of North Carolina, went through YL leader training, and became a Young Life leader at Northern Durham High.  Five high schools and 20+ years later, I'm still in awe of the Jesus who saved me and allows me to share his love with my high school friends. 

Thanks for visiting this site. I hope it becomes a place where we can hang out often. It's fun to think we get to lead this thing called "Young Life" in completely different places around the world, yet still doing it together.
