The concept is simple: we give so others can speed the light of the gospel to a world in darkness. This is accomplished by providing the “essential transportation and creative communication” equipment for missionary evangelism.

Through modern transportation, radio, television, the printed word, and equipment for mass evangelism, our missionaries can better fulfill the Great Commission.

Speed the Light (STL) is a student-initiated, volunteer, charitable program that provides much-needed equipment to missionaries across the nation and in over 180 countries around the world. Since its beginning, STL has raised over $235 million for missionary equipment around the world.


Every year, students, youth ministries, leaders and churches across our state give generously to STL. Through that generosity, many missionaries from ND have the resources they need to share the truth and hope of Jesus Christ throughout our world. 

It’s not just stats, or goals, or awards - Speed the Light is inviting students to join with the Kingdom of Heaven to change their world!

For the security of our workers in other nations, we can't post the details of all our projects publicly. However, for more information about current projects, please email us: office@ndyouth.com.


The national Speed the Light website has great information for churches and youth leaders!

In addition, the FREE Speed the Light Digisource is PACKED with great ideas, tools and promotional items.

In connection with Speed the Light, The Human Right Movement was created to unite advocates of The Human Right to rise from apathy to action, entitlement to responsibility, and silence to advocacy. The core concept: We ardently acknowledge, support and promote the alleviation of all social justice issues—unclean water, sexual slavery and extreme poverty—but we are most passionate about seeing people everywhere come to truly know Jesus (Philippians 2:4).



We encourage you to give to Speed the Light through your local church, if at all possible. Talk to your pastor or youth leader for more information. Alternately, you can also use the Speed the Light donation link on the right.
