What is Capernaum?
Begun in San Jose, Calif., in 1986, Young Life Capernaum Ministries is a program of Young Life especially for kids and young adults with disabilities (ages 14-22).
Young people with disabilities — like their able-bodied peers — have hopes and dreams, needs and fears; but, many of them feel isolated and have no one to share their struggles with and no one to encourage them and help them be all God designed them to be. Young Life Capernaum helps fill the void many of these young people face. Capernaum gives kids and young adults with disabilities the chance to have fun, make friends, develop self-esteem and begin a relationship with Jesus Christ.
