Serve in Crownpoint, New Mexico, with Young Life Expeditions

Crownpoint and Young Life

Come serve the Navajo people at a Native American Reservation in New Mexico and demonstrate the love of Jesus in a powerful way in this very impoverished community. This is one of the few Young Life areas who serve Native Americans and bring the Gospel to them. 
Participants who take time and resources to see this ministry in action and help serve their community offer an enormous boost to Young Life in this region! We all need one another’s encouragement and love; Expeditions is one of the best ways to build bridges in God’s family!


The Young Life area director here has a vibrant ministry with Teen Moms.  Your service would include spending time with them and their children in whatever ways needed. You may do crafts and Young Life club with them as they seek to see the love of Jesus lived out. You would also put together and deliver food baskets to elderly residents who live far out on the Reservation and have little transportation. Enjoy hearing their stories of what life is like here and how God is present. Your service may also include light maintenance work and painting in homes.

If you are there over a Sunday you will enjoy worship at their church followed by a delicious Navajo potluck with the people.

Your team will get time with Young Life kids, staff, leaders and one another. You will be able to discuss issues of poverty that you see and ways to present Jesus Christ through this.

Lodging will be on a church floor with bedding that you provide. Your team would make many of your meals except those brought in by residents.
