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.
