The House

For decades there have been people in the Nashville area – staff, leaders, committee, and community members – praying for a permanent home for Young Life Nashville. In 2013 that dream became a reality when the Young Life house on Music Row was purchased. This past year more than 10,000 people have walked through the doors of the YL house. It has provided a place for offices, staff meetings, leader training, small groups, campaigners, YL College, and so much more. At monthly leadership meetings alone, there are routinely 75+ leaders spilling out of the largest meeting room in the house. We have been blessed with an incredible space, but we have been even more blessed by many volunteers who love Jesus and love teenagers. The house is fully at capacity, but we are growing!
 
As a result, the decision was made to head upstairs. Finishing out the upstairs will create a larger space for people to gather and, in turn, create more room for the area to grow. More people in our doors means more leaders, more kids, bigger clubs, additional clubs, more kids going to camp, more kids meeting Jesus, more Campaigner groups and most importantly, more Kingdom impact.
