For your convenience, our most common questions are answered right here.
What age does YQL target?
Our target age is middle and high school students but we do allow those who are older or younger to attend.
What about your True Love Waits Show?
It is our belief that middle school and high school students are already being exposed to issues regarding sex, dating, and relationships. However, these topics are being thrust upon a generation with one view: secularism. It is imperative that young people are given the full truth regarding these issues. We believe that hearing the truth of God’s Word concerning these topics is essential to teen’s convictions, identity, and purpose.
Parents are welcome to ask questions and accompany their children to these events. It is our sincerest hope that these shows will spark questions, conversations and equip youth to stand confidently in purity. Click Here to view a past True Love Waits show
How much does YQL cost?
YouthQuake Live is a FREE event. We do take up an offering during the show to help cover production fees. You may reserve seats here for a $3 fee if you would like to guarantee that your group sit together.
How do I explain YQL to parents?
The best way is to direct them to the website and have them watch a show so that they can get a preview of the vision and content of YouthQuake Live. You can also explain that it is similar to a Christian version of Saturday Night Live created by teens to reach teens.
Where do you sell your merchandise?
Our merchandise is sold exclusively at our live events. Merchandise varies each season.
How is YQL funded?
YouthQuake Live is funded by individual donors, show offerings and local businesses that partner with us to reach this generation. To find out more visit the “Ways to Give” tab at the top of the page.
How can I pray for YQL?
We would love to have your prayers for YQL as we work to reach this generation. Here are some specific things you can be praying for:
Cast Members – Creative ideas and boldness as they invite friends to come to the event
Interns & Adult Leaders – love & patience for the students they lead and that God would stretch them as they grow in their leadership
Staff – Wisdom as they make decisions, oversee the interns and work to make YQL more effective
Audience – That their hearts would be open to the message and they would have the courage to respond
Youth Pastors – That they would be encouraged as they give there lives to reaching teens
Finances – Pray YQL would be connected with generous people who have a vision to see more teens reach
How can my church host a show?
To host one of our events, your church needs to seat a minimum of 1,500 people and be available on Thursday from 2pm – 7:30pm & Friday from 2pm – 11pm on the dates that correspond to the first Friday of each month during the school year. If you meet these qualifications, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a date for the YQL staff to visit your facility & discuss further partnership opportunities.
Do you tour to other cities?
At this time YouthQuake Live is focused on reaching the city of Jacksonville. There are tens of thousands of students who have not heard the gospel and we want to reach all of them. We do, however, encourage local communities to start their own version of YouthQuake Live in their own cities. We have put together a manual to help you accomplish this task, which can be found below.
How do I start YQL in my city?
YouthQuake Live is structured in a way to be an outreach within a community that is created by local teens who want to reach their peers. It is our hope that other communities can take the vision and structure of YQL into their own cities with a group of teens who have a desire to reach out to their own peers. Each city has its own unique set of challenges and no one knows that better than those who live there. If you are interested in starting your own YouthQuake Live, email us at email@example.com for a how to guide. We know God is going to use you and the teens in your community to make a huge difference in the lives of young people.
