The PCEA Youth Department came into being by a resolution of PCEA General Assembly (GA) in 1960 to cater for the needs of young people between ages 15-35 years. In inaugurating the Youth department, it was agreed that the department embrace activities of young people and enlist their efforts in the tasks of evangelism and fellowship. Further, the youth department is charged with the responsibility of coordinating all the youth activities, projects and programs through Regional, Presbyterial, Parish and congregational youth fellowship committee
The main objective of the Youth Ministry is to raise young men and women who fear the Lord and are willing and ready to study the Word of God and become role models in character and leadership. Their guiding verse is Psa. 119:9, 11 “How can a young man keep his way pure, by living according to Your Word. I have hidden your Word in my heart that I might not sin against you”.
