4 Ways We Need Your Help

1. Connect Us to Your Church

We would like to be introduced to your pastor responsible for young adults or for missions, so we can tell them about this ministry. We need to partner with 30 Evangelical Churches, so we can assist each other with our young adult ministries.  Will you please introduce us to your church?

2. Volunteer

We are looking for volunteers, to help us contact local churches to tell them about our ministry. If you, or someone you know, would like to help us out, please let us know.

We need some volunteers to help man our booth at Celebrate Freedom, handing out YAoW fliers, and getting people to sign up for our email list. Our booth will be located inside a building, so you won’t be in the sun. If you are interested in helping us out for a few hours that day, let us know as soon as possible.

3. Pray

Please continue to pray for us. It is very hard starting a new ministry, and at times very stressful. Please pray that God will bring people along side us to help… Pray that He will provide the resources necessary… Pray that He will be glorified in everything we do…

4. Donations

Our marketing spend is increasing as we try to raise awareness. In addition to the marketing, legal, and accounting fees, we also have young adults at our house once or twice per week. We always provide food and drinks, so it gets costly.

In addition to the above, we need your help to raise $200,000 to open our first facility in North Dallas. 500 individuals giving only $35/month on average will allow us to meet our goals. Will you be one of them? 

Please Donate Now. No amount is too small, and you can give a one-time donation or a monthly recurring. You will receive an emailed receipt for tax deduction purposes. God bless you, and thanks for your prayers and support.

Ken Leaman has a passion for students, and for over 25 years has been volunteering within churches, leading and mentoring students.  These churches are:

Ken is a Director of Enterprise Data Management at IHS Markit, which is a multi-Billion dollar information company. Ken has also served on the board of another non-profit called DFW HDI, which is a membership organization of IT support professionals.  

Ken, and his wife Karen, have been married for 26 years, and have a 25 year old son.  They live in McKinney, TX, just North of Dallas.

As Ken and Karen repeatedly witnessed many Christian students who were active within the Church walk away from their faith shortly after graduating high school, they grew frustrated.  Studies show that about 70% of young adults leave their faith after graduation, which is a huge issue since they are the future of the Church.  After much prayer and searching God's direction for many years, the Leaman's felt His calling to start a ministry to address this problem.  In 2014, they gathered like minded Christian professionals to help begin Young Adults of Worth Ministries.  We believe that this ministry is from God, and it will be blessed by Him for His glory alone.
