Our Youth & Young Adult Ministry (YAYA) is a division of Shield of Faith Fellowship of Churches International under the leadership of our Presiding Prelate and Founder: Apostle Henry Alexander.
In 2005 the Shield of Faith Fellowship of Churches, Int'l launched the YAYA Convention, but now YAYA has become a coalition of young believers coming together to grow, build, and send both students and young adults for kingdom ministry throughout the United States. We aim to expand YAYA Worldwide.
Minister John Thomas Jr. our YAYA President has worked diligently with his awesome staff to expand and grow YAYA and reach countless amounts of Youth and Young Adults. His vision is to help our young people become faithful servants of the Lord Jesus Christ, discover their purpose and evangelize the world.
Every year we have a 3-day convention of faith, fellowship and family oriented events, hosted in Southern California of the United States and regional YAYA events are hosted throughout the country. Attendees can engage in activities such as, praise and worship, sessions on entrepreneurship, leadership development, education, as well as financial empowerment. There are also activities that include YAYA Kid Zone, sessions for Married Couples and singles as well as special musical, celebrity guest and more!
