Young Adult Ministry(YAM)
By The Reverend Valarie Walker
The Young Adult Ministry is comprised of members of the congregation between the ages of 18 and 45 who seek to minister to the spiritual, social, career, and community needs of young adults. We want young adult Christians to take their place in the ministry of Christ. Therefore, we will plan forums, fellowships, and service opportunities in the church and outside the church to present the good news of Christ and invite young adults to take this journey of faith, hope, and love with us.
YAM strives to create a community of young adults who are spiritually equipped to handle the challenges of today’s society through the power of Jesus Christ. Our goal is to change lives and in that regard, we will help young adults to focus on three areas: relationship with God, relationship with others, and "relationship" with self.
YAM aims to achieve this through activities that cater to the spiritual, emotional, and social needs of young adults. With that in mind, we want our young adults to be involved with fellowships, worship services, a weekly "tele-worship and prayer service" via phone, spiritual conferences, and a variety of other activities specifically geared toward young adult needs.
