Young People’s Ministries, comprising dual emphases on Youth Ministry and Young Adult Ministries, strives to create connections in ministry and fellowship among members of each age-group so they can grow together in Christ, as they discover empowered, fulfilling lives grounded in faith.

We focus on faith formation, principled leadership development, mission engagement, communication, cooperation and advocacy. In the process, we seek to cultivate unconditional love, self-worth and peer support among young people, and to foster their social activism for peace and justice. We draw our inspiration and ideas from the diverse experiences of youth and of young adults who are active in their churches and communities.
