WESTERN EUROPE – YOUNG LIFE
After years of leading Young Life Spain and Young Life Western Europe, Jim and Barbara McNamee are now developing new areas as part of the regional staff. They are working to start new ministries in the five countries of Western Europe, including Luxembourg, Andorra, and Italy. Their primary focus at this time is starting a new YL area in the Basque Country of Spain.
The mission of Young Life is simple. YL wants every kid, everywhere to experience the message of hope in Jesus Christ. Kids in every culture respond to that life-changing message when caring adults are willing to first earn the right to proclaim the truth of the gospel.
