Connor O'Leary - SS

My name is Connor. This is my fourth year that I have been a leader at Allendale High School, my first year being on student staff and being a team leader. I am currently in my senior year at Grand Valley State University. I plan to graduate this April.

Young Life has been a big part of my life. When I attended Young Life for the first time, it was immediately evident to me that this was no ordinary place. Kids from all walks of life could come together, feeling welcome and free to be themselves. and form meaningful relationships, while developing the most important relationship they could ever have, their relationship with Jesus.

As a leader, walking through life with high school students has proved to be incredibly fruitful for me. There is no greater joy than to have students learn more about who Jesus is, what that means for their lives, and then the transformations that can be seen because of that. There is something about Young Life that is so special to me. There is no other place I have experienced in which the love of Jesus is so clearly exemplified by the people who take part in this ministry. 

Young Life has made such a profound impact on my life by being formative and foundational to my faith. Which is why when I graduate I am planning on pursuing a job working for Young Life full time. This has been a dream of mine for a long time and your support means so much to me. Thank you for taking your time, energy, and prayers in partnering with me in this journey of ministry.
