Young Men University is a training center for boys and men. YMU offers clear choices and options based upon the current stations in life. YMU believes that change is inevitable therefore, the need to attempt to force change is more often than not unsuccessful. However, there is not only a need but an obligation to show the results that are realized from the choices all men make.
The instructors and staff of YMU have all experienced life in ways that caused destruction. Now, by the Grace and Mercy of God they have returned to those dark places from…
”Whence They Came” to share not only their mistakes but how, through Christ, life has been restored. Now they pour out of their hearts to prevent others from realizing their tragedies hoping to spare them the hurts and sorrows they have come to know.
There are no magical formulas to aid in the proper growth of our young men.
There are no incantations which can be uttered over them.
At YMU we believe that there is however, a WORD that exceeds all others. We believe there is a name that is above all other names.
In all our efforts here at YMU we call upon the name of Jesus. We rely solely upon His name, Mercy and Grace for the wisdom and guidance needed to change the lives of young men. Amen!
Is your son nearing adulthood now or in the very near future?
Has he dropped out of school?
Do you see him drifting into areas of life that can only bring destruction and sorrow?
YMU, does not accept or condone the ideal that a young man can be “scared straight”. We believe that by sharing real life experience from the hearts of men from of all ages this will create a positive thought provoking and indelible impact in the lives of these young men.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world and spiritual wickedness in high places. - Ephesians 6:12
