The Rev. Cathie P. Young, Christian pastor, teacher and author serves as President of Twelve Eleven.  She, with her husband Philip and other team members, share the testimony of the value of all human life and for the love God has for all he has made.  ​  Where does the name Twelve Eleven come from? From Romans 12:11 NIRV - “Never let the fire in your heart go out. Keep it alive. Serve the Lord.”

Our Mission


All human life holds inexpressible God-given value from its beginning to its natural end.   We uphold and support the value of each life in these ways:

  • We bring dignity to the lives of those who suffer, most especially from cancer, providing practical, emotional and spiritual support.

  • We provide teaching at classes, seminars and conferences on Christian matters which illuminate a deeper understanding of God's value for all human beings and His love for all He has made.

  • We engage in activities which promote an awareness of the value of life from the womb and to life’s natural ending.

Cancer with Compassion 

Comforting others with the comfort we have received from God.  2 Corinthians 1:4

Cancer support is a strong focus for Twelve Eleven.  With chapters in both California and Oregon, we provide support groups, prayer and one-on-one support for cancer patients in treatment, survivors and the loved ones of someone with cancer.  Our support groups provide a safe place to share and a soft place to land for cancer patients in a compassionate, prayerful Christian environment.  Prior to COVID, support groups met in person but in the height of the pandemic, we began to meet virtually via Zoom -- anyone, anywhere could join us.  We continue with Zoom support group meetings and now once again offer in-person meetings in Southern California and Central Oregon.  Contact us for more information on our Cancer with Compassion support groups.  Visit the Cancer with Compassion website and fill out the contact form.

The Sanctity of Life
from Conception to Natural Death

"All the days ordained for me were

written in your book before one of them

came to be."  Psalm 139:16

Twelve Eleven teaches that all life is created by God and is precious to him.  We celebrate, honor, and protect life from conception to natural death and every stage in between.  In our present culture there are sadly many ways to disrespect, disregard, cause harm to or even end the lives of the most vulnerable among us -- the young, the sick, the elderly, the unwanted, the unborn.  It is the duty and privilege of Twelve Eleven to educate others and engage in activities which protect human life and to affect a change in our culture to value life at all stages.   Rev. Cathie Young, Twelve Eleven President, speaks to these important issues at conferences around the nation.  At Anglicans for Life SUMMIT 2019 she spoke to the value of the lives of those suffering with chronic, even terminal illness such as cancer.
