After the Summit

On January 25, 2014, 700 people attended Young Life Greater New York's Leader Summit in Manhattan.  Young Life volunteer leaders, staff, committee/board members, and guests from all over the east coast gathered at Redeemer Church's W83 Center to enjoy a day of vision and training around the mission to reach kids for Jesus Christ.
The Summit featured stirring music led by Katrice "Binki" Walker (NYC) and Christopher Williams (Nashville, TN), classic Young Life humor by Will Cox (Chesapeake, VA) and Josh Goodman (Baltimore, MD), presentations from John Wagner (NY, NY), Ari Phillips (Norwalk, CT), and Ethan Osborne (Suffern, NY), and inspirational messages from Denny Rydberg, President of Young Life (Colorado Springs, CO), Christine Lee (NY, NY), Shelley Sadler (Denver, CO), and Paul Coty (NY, NY).

In its third year, the Leader Summit has quickly become the annual conference where the vision, status, and people of Young Life in Greater NY are celebrated and shared with the extended Young Life family.
