Letters to a Young Life Leader by Robert Mitchell
One of the first people to come to faith in Christ through the ministry of Young Life, Bob Mitchell rose through its ranks to fill every conceivable position in the ministry, from being a club kid in Jim Rayburn’s legendary “Club 37” all the way to serving for a decade as the mission’s president.
For years people have asked “Mitch,” a beloved and gifted communicator, to put his insights in a book. Now in his eighties, Mitch has finally done so. Written in the form of 37 letters to the Young Life family, Letters to a Young Life Leader is like sitting down and having a conversation with Mitch himself. Combining humility, deep spiritual wisdom, and Mitchell’s trademark humor and gentle spirit, you will find each letter to be a gem worth reading over and over.
The book is arranged in five different sections, each introduced by a story from Mitch’s remarkable history with Young Life.
Sit down, open to any letter, and be encouraged!
