Serving Those Who Serve Us All

The Armed Services YMCA makes military life easier by providing programs and services to the young men and women of all five armed services: Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard. These Ys support more than 500,000 young enlisted soldiers, sailors, airmen and their families each year with the help of gracious donors and stalwart volunteers. The Alaska Armed Services YMCA offers some very unique programs that are specifically geared to serve military families. While they don’t have a recreational facility, they offer a variety of services on four military bases in Anchorage and Fairbanks, and service the rest of the military installations in the state through outreach programs.

The River and the YMCA

It has been hot, really hot.

I came home from the YMCA and the river was calling my name. I am blessed to live by a river. In the mornings I sit out by it and drink my coffee. This is the time that God and I have our best conversations.

As I looked at the river, I had a hard time seeing anything in it. The water is crystal clear and the bottom is rocky, a typical mountain river. I can see the bottom clearly, but unless the salmon are running I don’t see any fish. I always knew they were there, but just couldn’t see them.

Chasing Godliness

Just outside of my office, our Wellness Center is full of cardio machines, free motion weights and just about every type of exercise apparatus you could imagine. And every day they are put through their paces by trainers, members, and community participants who seek a healthier lifestyle. But what about our spiritual journey?

Retired? I Don’t Think So

The US Mission Network was well represented at a gathering of leaders from the Christian movement within the YMCA. Six members of our Board and Ministry Cabinet were part of this unique gathering in London, along with representatives from India, Hong Kong, Germany, Chile, England, and Africa.

Cru17 Staff Conference

Home of Colorado State University, most weeks during the summer when the students are on break are fairly sleepy in Fort Collins. But when 5,000 Cru staff members come into town, many along with their families, the town comes alive.

We're dedicated to preserving, nurturing, and advancing the Christian heritage and purpose of the YMCA across America.
