Youth Praise Team

“To God Be The Glory”


2014 THEME


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)


Ministry Vision:


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 singing.

Brother Derek became the advisor of the Youth Prasie Team in 2006 and is still serving as advisor. We rehearse with the musicians every Monday and Thursday before the 4th Sunday of each month.

This was a vision of Pastor Rev. Gerry T. Anderson.
