Youth & Adult Development
The mission of the Chaplaincy Services of the Wichita Falls YMCA is to make Christ and His values evident in the culture of our YMCA and the communities in which we serve and is as meaningful and relevant today as it was in our inception in 1844.
It is the Chaplain's responsibility to lead the organization:
*To an understanding of what constitutes our association's Christian principles,
*To an awareness about how our organization can make Christian principles practical in our provision of programs and services,
*To a place where programs and services engage members, volunteers, and staff in the pursuit of healthy spirit, mind and body for all, and,
*To the teaching, modeling and philosophy of servant leadership.
Across the United States, more than 500,000 business leaders, community advocates, parents, teens and individuals who want to give back and support their neighbors volunteer at the Y. That’s because in 10,000 neighborhoods nationwide we have the presence and partnerships to not just promise, but deliver positive, personal and social change.
With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, Y volunteers give men, women and children of all ages and from all walks of life the resources and support they need to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.
