The Youth Ministry of the PIWC Atomic (Akan Assembly) is operated under the broad guidelines of the Church of Pentecost Youth Ministry.
The Ministry seeks to empower the youth to live for Christ everywhere and exists to mobilize and equip the youth to live for Christ, make Him known and impact the Church and Society.
The goal of the Ministry is to raise a well-informed Youth Leadership in the Church who have dedicated themselves to the service of the “Lord of the Harvest” and to emphasise spiritual living in order to avoid fulfilling the lusts of the eyes, flesh and the world. The Ministry promotes a sense of community and teamwork involving both leaders and members in order to foster a sense of unity and love. The Ministry has instituted a well-structured mentoring programme that has motivated and coached young people to take up responsibility in the Church.
