Youth Praise Team
“To God Be The Glory”
Psalm 147:1 Praise ye the LORD: for
it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is
pleasant; and praise is comely. (KJV)
To be used of God to do His will to lead people to
truly praise Him.
Our youths will become the next Apostles, Prophets,
Pastors & Teachers. We must be faithful to lift
them up in prayer and to speak "life" into
their lives. They are the "carriers" of
the Gospel in the hour and the enemy wants to stop
the impact that they are making in the church, in
the schools, and on their jobs. God says that they
are "victors" and "overcomers"
and we stand in agreement with the Word of God as
it relates to the people of God.
There are times set apart for our youth
to lead the congregation in worship. These times help
them to develop both in their own personal times of
worship to God, and prepares them to become future
leaders in the Body of Christ. If you are a youth
and would like to be a part of the Youth Praise Team,
please see Brother Derek Watson.

The Youth Praise Team (YPT) was established in 2005
under the direction of Sister Rita Thornton. YPT started
out with 9 young people from ages 10 – 20, under the
leadership of Sister Crystal Thornton. Early rehearsals
started out in the kinderdarden room and in the trailers
in the back of our old church. YPT rehearsed with
CD’s from a small boom box. It was not until the 4th
Sunday (Super Sunday) was established that the youth
praise team was able to rehearse with the musicians.
YPT first sang for the 2005 Youth Conference.
Today YPT sing every 4th Sunday at 7:45 a.m. and 11:00
a.m. services. The praise team comprise of young people
from ages 13 – 30, who together give God praise through
