IN PURSUIT OF THE MILLION
Help us kick off our 2025 goal of helping our leaders engage 1 million youth. Over the next 5 years we want to see 15,000 urban leaders in our leadership process. This will increase their capacity and impact in engaging urban youth.
1.2 Million young people are leaving the church every year. That means one young person leaves the church every 26 seconds.
Our leaders are uniquely positioned to not only meet their needs, but most importantly, to help them walk through these difficult seasons. Now more than ever young people need hope. We believe the Gospel is still the answer. We are training and resourcing leaders so that urban youth have strong, healthy role models who live compelling Gospel-centered lives that attract, influence, and impact their communities.
Our goal is to raise $450,000 by December 31st to accomplish 3 things:
- Fuel – Sustain 10 Fuel Networks across the country.
- Resource – Create more resources to help leaders better disciple youth.
- Collaborate – Support collaborations that will exponentially reach more leaders and youth.
2019 Annual Report
2019 was an incredible year at UYWI! There has been much change, including the transition of our beloved Founder, Dr. Larry Acosta. Yet, in the midst of this significant new season, God has continued to #DoTheWork of moving UYWI forward for the purpose of resourcing and training high impact and high capacity leaders who dedicate their lives to the transformation of youth across the globe through the Gospel. As we enter 2020 we continue our calling of investing into the leaders of the future, because #TheFutureIsHere!
