The Young Life organization has been active in southeast Texas since 1984 and in Lumberton since 2011. Josh Ruiz heads up the Lumberton group and helped to organize the clay shoot fundraiser at the One-in-One-Hundred Gun Club that was held on Saturday, April 21.
Around 13 teams registered for the event and the goal was to raise money that will support the ministry of Young Life in Lumberton.
Ruiz says Young Life is, “a ministry of adults who love Jesus and spend time mentoring high school students in Lumberton. They want to invest in students.”
Right now, they have around 100 LHS students involved in the group.
