Our Mission

The YBL 2nd Half Ministry envisions mobilizing, ministering to, and multiplying men who leverage their life experiences, time, and resources to impact God’s Kingdom on local, national, and international scales.

The Heartbeat of 2nd Half Ministry

Drawing inspiration from scriptures like Joshua 14:6-12, Psalms 71:17-18, Psalms 92:14, and Job 42:12, our ministry aims to bless the latter days even more than the beginnings.
