Welcome to the YPOWT Page

YPOWT is the identity and purpose of young people at Greater Bakersfield First Pentecostal Church (GBFPC). YPOWT is an acronym which stands for Young People Of Worship Together. This ministry brings young people together for times of fun, fellowship, development, prayer, worship, and the Word.

GBFPC stands behind its young people, guiding them to a deeper walk with God to carry on the gospel of truth. The world is filled with hungry pre-teens, teenagers, and young adults searching for peace and a message that will set them free from the torment of the enemy. Youth have great value and purpose and can be used mightily when in the hands of the One True Living God (Psalms 127:3, 4).

Young people are not separate from the church, they are an integral, energized, powerful, and growing element of the church (Lamentations 3:27). Our purpose in youth ministry is to foster an atmosphere where young people experience fun, fellowship, and unified worship. Our goal is to see young people be the light of the world in their youth, and mentor them in successfully transitioning from youth to adult in the Kingdom of God.
