Richard Allen Young Adult Council
Just as God called Joshua to lead the children of Israel into the Promise Land, Samuel to proclaim God's word and Nehemiah to rebuild Jerusalem, even so, God has called a new generation of believers to make God known. God is calling for young men and women to serve as God's ambassadors and ministers of reconciliation in the midst of life's transition. Now is the time to take our place in the struggle. Now is the time to serve the present age our callings to fulfill.
The mission of the Richard Allen Young Adult Council (RAYAC) is to minister the intellectual (mind), physical (body), and spiritual (spirit), needs of the members of the AME Church.
The fourfold purpose of the Richard Allen Young Adult Council includes the following:
Discipleship - Bring young adults into a covenant relationship with Jesus Christ, teaching them how to live Christ-centered lives, and serve as Christian mentors to youths.
Leadership Training - Develop young adults into Christian leaders within the AME Church and the community at large to effectively represent and voice the concerns of a new generation.
Fellowship - Create and provide opportunities for Christian fellowship among young adults.
Networking - Provide resources for young adult ministries within the AME Church and the community at large, while providing opportunities for young adults to use God-given gifts and talents for the Kingdom of God.
