The purpose of the Apostolic Youth Ministry (AYM) is to R.E.A.C.H. young people for the Kingdom of God. AYM seeks to REUNITE youth in relationship with Jesus Christ, ENGAGE them in fellowship and worship with other Christians, while helping them ADVANCE in their Faith. Through the power of God, we also seek to teach young people how to CULTIVATE their God-given gifts and inspire them to HONOR God with their lives.
In the early 1990’s, Evangelist Linden Millwood had a vision of creating a ministry within the Church that would minister to the spiritual, emotional, and social needs of every young person who was an active member of the church. Evangelist L. Millwood was fueled with a passion and desire to ensure that the youth of the church were not lost as a result of feeling disconnected from the very church they attended. With that God-given conviction, He drafted a plan that would change the life of the Apostolic Church of God 7th Day forever. Learn more about the History of the Apostolic Youth Ministrye...
