A PLACE TO BELONG

Young Life Capernaum Greater Seattle is a ministry that is dedicated to giving teens and young adults with disabilities a place to belong, a chance to be valued, and an opportunity to engage in meaningful friendships. ​ We ​ give young people the chance to experience growing and fulfilling friendships, engage in activities that challenge their physical limits, grow their potential, and explore the relevance of faith in their lives. ​ Our desire is to convey to ALL kids with disabilities that they are loved and valued by us and by God.

1995

YOUNG LIFE CAPERNAUM BEGINS IN SEATTLE

After spending a few years learning under Nick Palermo, the founder of Young Life Capernaum, Blaine Clyde moved back to his home state to start Young Life Capernaum Greater Seattle. ​ The first Capernaum club in the northwest was started at Nathan Hale high school. ​ Since 1995 many other Young Life Capernaum clubs have started throughout the northwest. ​

Our goal is to reach out to as many of these kids as possible and remind them that they are valued, loved, and welcomed.

 

1100+

KIDS KNOWN BY NAME OVER THE LAST 25 Years

Although we hope every kid has a chance to come to one of our fun events, we are aware that our greatest impact is made within relationships, not events. With every passing day, we strive to get to know the specific name of more and more kids in our area.
