Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity" 1 Timothy 4:12
Pentecostal Young People's
The Pentecostal Young People's Association, the youth wing of the Indian Pentecostal Church was founded in 1947 by a few Pentecostal college students. This wing was created to develop the Pentecostal Youth socially, mentally, culturally and above all, spiritually.
PYPA was formed in IPC Bethel, T.Dasarahalli 2 decades ago by a few individuals who had the burning desire to see the next generation of the church being used for the expansion of God's Kingdom. PYPA's role in IPC Bethel is influencing the next generation to bring an impact to wherever our youth are placed and to drag youngsters out of the dark. IPC Bethel PYPA group also known as BETHEL YOUNKERS
PYPA is conducting spiritual leisure programs to strengthen Christian bond & encourage talents. These are conducted at regular intervals of post Sunday-worships. More than 150 members are gathering in each meeting.
Every year PYPA is identifying School going children to help them with their School Tuition fees. And also identify the needs of the orphans and helping them.
PYPA conducted a Family Seminar, to help families build their lives upon the Word of God and to improve & strengthen healthy, personal relationships within the family.
