Stephen Odour

Steve was invited to Young Life club for the first time in 2005 by his Young Life leader, Martin. Martin pursued relationships with Steve and Steve’s friends and, over time, Martin earned the right to be heard by Steve. In 2007, Steve went to the first Young Life camp in Kenya and had the best week of his life. He heard the gospel and decided to accept Christ into his life for the first time. Steve was officially hooked on the Lord and Young Life. As Steve became deeply involved in Young Life while in high school and matured in his walk with the Lord, he was invited to participate in the Developing Global Leaders (DGL) program. The DGL program is an opportunity for selected students to gain a university education while they learn from a mentor and serve as a volunteer leader in a local Young Life club. Due to Steve’s completion of the DGL program and his servant’s heart, Martin, who had become the Regional Director of Young Life for Western Kenya, asked him to join Young Life staff. Now, Steve is the Area Director for western Nairobi. He oversees 14 clubs and acts as a team leader for Ofafa Jericho and Racecourse, two neighborhoods in his area. Steve’s relationship with Martin helped him understand what it means to be a Young Life leader and now he has the joy of leading kids to the Lord while on Young Life staff. Pray for Steve as he works to show kids God’s love, mercy and grace in western Nairobi.
