Today’s the birthday of the founder of Young Life, Jim Rayburn. If he was still living today, he’d be 103.
Rayburn Jr. was born in Iowa on July 21, 1909. He lived a short 61 years
in which God used him to start the incredible movement of Young Life. The lives he touched and still continues to impact are countless.
of the most life changing books I’ve ever read is Jim Rayburn’s biography, “Dance, Children,
Dance.” It was written by Jim’s son, Jim Rayburn III, and you can
purchase it here.
Rayburn III has also provided a great gift to us leaders by offering
free downloads of eight of Jim’s Young Life talks given at Frontier
Ranch between 1959-1962. You can download them here by right clicking on each link and selecting “Save As.”
Happy Birthday Jim Rayburn!This blog wouldn’t exist without you.
