Why the Y?
“The Young Men’s Christian Associations seek to unite those young men who, regarding Jesus Christ as their God and Saviour, according to the Holy Scriptures, desire to be his disciples in their faith and in their life, and to associate their efforts for the extension of his Kingdom amongst young men.”
The Paris Basis
Global Purpose Statement of the YMCA
This mission statement calls out the great themes of exalting Jesus, being faithful to God’s Word, living as His disciples and extending His Kingdom. We are committed to these themes and intentionally partner with churches and YMCAs all over the world that seek to pursue these themes together.
Our Church Plants
We have already planted two churches locally, in Landen and Maineville, and we partner with India Gospel League to plant churches internationally.
Every year, our staff team helps lead a conference on the Christian Mission of the YMCA and Church Planting in the YMCA. It is hosted at the beautiful YMCA Silver Bay Conference Center in upstate New York.
We are gathering like-minded churches to start a ground level movement of churches meeting in YMCAs.
