Serve in the Middle East with Young Life Expeditions

The story of Young Life in the Middle East began ten years ago when a young Palestinian believer first caught a vision for sharing the Gospel with teenagers in the West Bank.  With a little training, he began the first club in a small village not too far from Nazareth.  He trained leaders, loved kids in the name of Jesus and that vision began to yield fruit.  

In 2012, Hunter, Lauri Lambeth, with their daughter Haley, moved from Georgia to the hometown of Jesus to begin a Young Life ministry in Nazereth and oversee the growing ministry.

Today, ten years after that first club, Young Life is spread throughout the Holy Land in over ten communities, reaching and impacting teens from all three major cultural religious backgrounds.  Ten indigenous staff and over seventy volunteers, both Palestinian and Israeli, lead high schoo clubs, WyldlLife clubs for middle school youth, a YL College club and several YL Capernaum ministries for special needs teens and young adults.  Every summer there are outreach and discipleship camps throughout the land.  In 2018, over 800 kids experience summer camp.

Staff and leaders are making connections in the neighboring country of Jordan, in the hopes that we might begin ministry there soon, including amonthe refugee community primarily from Syria and Iraq.


​​Teams will more than likely serve at one of our camps either with Capernaum or high school outreach. There will also be time integrated into your Expedition to experience the Holy Land, see the Gospels come alive, and experience the beauty of the land where Jesus Himself lived and walked.
