The Youth Dept-New Building Fund

The Youth Department is a rapidly growing church in the community of McKeesport. It is our mission "To introduce people to Jesus Christ, to help them grow in their relationship and encourage them to be more like Christ, and then to reproduce that process in others. To promote soul winning through the foundational scripture, which requires for us to be servants one to another and to serve one another through the love of Jesus Christ."

 We are:

A diverse, celebratory church of mission, disciple-making communities through our commitment to God and ministry.
A relational network strategized on reaching the Greater Pittsburgh and surrounding areas, beginning with our local community of McKeesport.
Reproducers and developers of outward youth-focused church activities and program.
Since 2006, in addition to offering services on Sundays and Wednesdays, we are proud of our community programs which focus on mentoring, building self esteem, and exposing children to community service and to the creative arts. Some of our programs include; Our Father's Daughters, TYD Kidz and Club Christ.

In order to meet our mission and provide services in our community, we rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support. Without the assistance of community-minded individuals just like you, we wouldn't be able to serve those in our community each year.

To that end, we have outgrown our current location and are utilizing fundraising efforts to procure a new building. These efforts, if met,  will assist  us with expanding our vision for a greater impact within the community for the future.

Our goal is to raise $50,000.00. Over the next month, we will be having a SOW, GROW, REAP CAMPAIGN.

The goal of the campaign is to ask 100 people to sow $100 by October 29, 2017, so that we can provide a down payment of good faith to those who own the property.  A GoFundMe account has been established for this purpose.

Please go to the following link to make a secure donation today. or make checks/money orders payable to The Youth Department and forward to: The Youth Department, 524 Walnut St., McKeesport, PA 15132.

Your generous donation will help us to be an even brighter beacon of light to the City of McKeesport and to those the community serves.

Thank you in advance for your support!
