Using the outdoors to develop the youth into Christian leaders. Why COYL? Christian – Because first and foremost we are Christians. Before we are adventurers or athletes or students or employees or bosses, we are Christ-ians.
Mini-christs, followers of Jesus Christ. As followers of Jesus Christ we seek to disciple and make more Christians. Outdoor – Because we believe that the outdoors can be the best classroom for which God can use to shape and mold us into followers of Him. Jesus Himself taught more than half of His teachings outside. Great men and women of the faith have been taught in the wilderness only to emerge changed people. Moses was a man who was only allowed to become such a great leader because he first had to spend 40 years in the wilderness of God’s classroom. Youth – Because they are the future. In an ever changing, busier, more complicated world, the youth of today, soon to become tomorrow’s adults, need to be reached more than ever. Leadership – Because this is a generation that follows followers. We believe that God wants to use us to raise up a generation of Christian Leaders. By equipping them with Biblical Leadership Principles as the reference and leveraging the experiences of Moses, Daniel, Esther, David, Mary and many more to reinforce and draw out those principles.
Mission: Equipping and raising a new generation of Christian leaders grounded in Biblical leadership through challenging outdoor experiences.

"Dependability, integrity, the characteristic of never knowingly doing anything wrong, that you would never cheat anyone, that you would give everybody a fair deal. Character is a sort of an all-inclusive thing. If a man has character, everyone has confidence in him."

Here's the COYL announcement from last week at Calvary Chapel Santa Barbara.
Jeremy Sutherland briefly gives us a rundown of COYL, Christian Outdoor Your Leadership, and how you can get involved.
"The world cries for me who are strong: strong in conviction, strong to lead, to stand, to suffer. I pray you will be that kind of man, glad that God made you a man, glad to shoulder the burden of manliness in a time when to do so will often bring contempt."
-Elizabeth Elliot (Introduction to Mark of a Man)
