The purpose of YouthQuake Live (YQL) is to provide life-changing youth entertainment that unflinchingly confronts issues relevant to today’s teenagers, and to inspire young people to lead a revolution of righteousness and boldly fulfill their God-given destiny. At YouthQuake Live we believe that God wants to use young people to reach their generation. Each season, teenagers from over 40 local churches commit a year of their lives to help create and produce our live events. YQL began in Jacksonville, Florida in 1995 after a local youth group returned from an overseas mission trip with a desire to reach teens in their city. Their first event was a huge success with 40 teens in attendance. Today, the ministry has grown to an average attendance of 2,000.
