What Is Dayton Urban Young Life?

Dayton Urban Young Life (DUYL) is a Christian Teen Mentoring program where concerned Christian adults care enough about teens to go to themon their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don’t happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency; as we earn the right to be heard in their world.”


After the relationship is built; after the respect is gained; after they witness our walk with Christ and we share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with them, we anticipate the teen to accept the Gospel of Christ.  


Teens who choose not to accept the Gospel can continue to be a part of the experience to help keep them surrounded by those who do believe.  


For it is written, “For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. Galatians 5:14.

 Our children are living with the throngs of reality that has;
crushed confidence
damaged dreams
handcuffed hopes
and wearied world views

Therefore, we must agitate a paradigm shift in mind sets by;
creating new confidence, invigorating fresh dreams, harnessing potential, 
with strategic platforms of hope,
intentionally aspiring world views with the message that God loves and has a great plan for each and every born individual,

 - Bishop Mark C. McGuire, Sr.,
  Former Area Director
