Young Life Capernaum

Young Life Capernaum Ministries is an outreach of Young Life with teens and young adults with developmental and/or intellectual disabilities. The goal of YL Capernaum Ministries is to give kids with disabilities the same opportunity to hear the Gospel and experience the gift of life as able-bodied kids.

Do you know a teen or young adult with disabilities who would benefit from joining Capernaum?

Young Life Capernaum Club is open to all teens and young adults up to age 26 with disabilities, inside and outside of Ward. Capernaum Club gives them the chance to have fun, make friends, develop self-esteem and begin a relationship with Jesus Christ. Young Life staff and volunteers model Christ’s unconditional love and acceptance as they walk alongside these young adults — filling their lives with love and support.

Twice a month “Club” gatherings include music, games, activities, crafts, snacks and talks about Jesus being our friend. Use contact information below to receive a schedule of events.

It’s easier than you think! You don’t need to be a “professional” to be a friend to high school students with disabilities. All you need is God’s calling on your heart, a willingness to learn and the ability to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. You will quickly find yourself falling in love with these young people as you persevere in learning to be a friend.
