Age Doesn’t Stop Me
Join the Cast
Each year, students join together to impact their generation. Online Applications to join the cast for the following school year are typically available March – mid May online & at the live shows – you can find the link at the top of the home page once available. Those who apply will attend auditions in May & Cast Retreat in late July / early August. Weekly practices starting in August are on Sundays 2-
Cast members are held to a high standard of godliness as they serve as examples to other youth in the community. Cast members must be an active part of their own church & youth group. The age requirement to join is 8th – 12th grade AND at least 13 years. We invite those who have graduated to consider our Internship. As this is a one-year commitment, cast members will need to consider seriously their other time commitments due to the pivotal role each cast member plays. Your attendance at each practice & event is expected.
Our internship program is designed to be one of the most exciting, intense and unique ministry environments in the country. We’re searching for up to 20 of the most passionate and gifted people (ages 18-25) to join our YouthQuake Live team.
If you’re interested in being a part of an incredible move of God, if you want to see Him use you in ways you never imagined, serving here is one of the highest privileges you’ll ever experience.
When most people think of an internship, they have visions of busy work: fetching coffee, picking up dry cleaning, making copies. But at YouthQuake Live, we’re looking for contributing members for our team. After all, we are a ministry that aims to “over-believe” in young leaders.
We want to raise up a generation of world changers and leaders: people who are awakened to their God-given potential to make an impact for God’s glory, using whatever gifts He has placed within them.
If you’re into producing videos, we want to teach you what it looks like to make the best videos for God’s glory. Do you have a passion for worship? We want to put you in a position of influence to speak into a young generation of worship leaders. If you’re gifted in administration, we need your help to manage the details that make our processes flow. Maybe you’re great with skits – we have over one hundred students in our cast, and they need strong leadership.

Annual Missions Show – Each year we center one show on teaching the audience about the Great Commission and the role they should play in fulfilling it. In recent years, we have had up to 280 commitments at a single show to go on a short-term trip with either their own youth groups or with Global Expeditions. We also put missions trip information in the hands of all audience members so that the ones that can’t commit right then still have the information and can pray about going in the future. We promote short-term trips at a mission’s booth in partnership with Global Expeditions at four shows each year. We want to make sure that students who may miss our annual missions show still have the opportunity to get onto the field as a young person.
YQL Mission Trips – Most years we take a group on an out of the country missions trip. In the past, we have traveled to Mexico, Panama, Uganda & China & Peru. Our heart is to provide this “gateway” missions experience to as many students as possible while giving our own leaders invaluable leadership training in the hopes we will spark a desire for students to go further and one-day return to these nations as full-time missionaries.
Missions Scholarships – Each year we give a scholarship towards our cast members or young adult leaders for short term mission trips. Here are some stories from past Missions Scholarship recipients:
Hannah – Panama is a beautiful place, it’s very much like Florida when it comes to the weather. It has beautiful buildings and plant life. Sadly most of the families don’t allow Christianity or any religion in their homes. One of the girls I prayed for wanted a New Testament bible but was unsure because her father always got rid of the ones she got. The missionary we were working with had a devotional that we gave her that she could keep in her binder so we gave her that. We visited schools most of the days we were there and we saw a lot of kids hunger for God, even the younger ones, luckily we were able to bring them to Jesus. We gave them our testimonies and did skits, and it touched a lot of the kids. Whenever we did altar call 9 out of 10 of the large groups came up. Panama is an amazing place that hungers for God but doesn’t have the courage to step up. My youth group is returning this summer for another missions trip hopefully it will be just as fulfilling as the last time.
Kelsey – Last summer I spent two weeks in Haiti. I stayed at Christian Light School teaching first grade. I thought it would be an easy trip, staying at the school most of the time. But God had other plans. Sometimes we would walk our students home and the conditions they lived in broke my heart. Many students came to school with sores and infections. Parents would bring young children to the gates of the school seeking medical help. There were over 30 kids living at the school, and at first, I assumed they were all orphans. I later found out that almost all of them were poverty orphans. They had living parents, but they simply couldn’t take care of them. Parents were forced to give them up. Christian Light School and the missionaries there are doing amazing things for Christ. Their goal is to raise up Christian leaders that will change their country. But there is still so much to do. Please keep them all in your prayers!
Partnership w/ Okoa Refuge – Okoa Refuge, which was started by a former YQL cast member, is an orphanage in Uganda whose mission is to rescue children in that region of Africa. Every month, Okoa sets up a table at a show to highlight their ministry and expose students to the realities of injustice and poverty in the world. For more information on Okoa visit www.okoarefuge.com.
YQL Global Trips
2011 – China – Members of the YQL staff traveled to China to train a local church on how to have their own version of YQL. They have successfully put on multiple events after we. This particular church works with college students from all over the world who will someday go back to their nations with what they were taught. We hope to be able to do more trips like this in the future and be able to equip young people around the world to reach their own generation for Christ.
2015 & 2016 – Mexico – During these two summers we brought teams to work w/ Baja Christian Ministries. The team was able to build a house during their week, lead vacation bible schools for local kids and visit families house to house leading many to the Lord.
2016 – Uganda – This was a special trip as we were able to work w/ Okoa Refuge which was started by one of our former cast members. While there the team was able to put on Medical Clinics where over 1000 were given medical treatment – while they were waiting teams would pray w/ them and explain the gospel. We were also able to spend time at Okoa’s Orphanage loving on the kids and teaching the older ones how to do a drama they would be able to use on their own outreaches. We were also able to help a family by finishing their mud house w/ them.
2017 – Peru – While in Peru we were able to work alongside
