YOUNG ADULT MINISTRY
The Young Adult Ministry (YAM) is a new ministry, formed under the leadership of Dr. Thomas Johnson to help address the spiritual needs of a large community of young adults attending Canaan. In its short existence, YAM has grown by leaps and bounds, and an offshoot, the Young Adult Ministry Choir, has recently been created. The YAM Choir sings contemporary gospel songs and ministers every fourth Sunday of the month. If you would like to be a part of this vibrant group of young people, call 212-866-0301.
The Young Adult Ministry’s mission is to praise and glorify God, as well as gain an understanding of God's word and teachings as it applies in our lives; to provide an open forum where young adults can meet regularly to discuss the various spiritual issues our age group faces; to provide support and fellowship while keeping in the work of the Lord; to motivate one another to maintain our walk of faith and continue to glorify God in all that we do; to be a social group of positive influence, providing guidance, and direction towards purpose and self-discovery.
To help each other recognize and acknowledge our gifts, abilities, and talents and help in finding ways within the community to use them for God's purpose and good work.
