The Foreign Mission arm of the Youth and Young Adult Auxiliary is committed to following the Great Commission given to us by our Lord and Savior in Matthew 28:16-20.  We are developing mission-minded youth and young adults to work for and in the foreign mission field with commitment, enthusiasm, and zeal. Therefore, we are partnering with the National Baptist Foreign Mission Board to send a small contingency of 16-year-old youth along with young adult chaperons (25-35-year-old) to Grenada in July 2023.  The youth and young adults not traveling to Grenade will support by facilitating fundraising events and developing kits and projects to send to Grenada in advance of the trip.    While there, the group will be empowered to assist with the evangelistic outreach to bring other youth and young adults to Christ.  Participants will assist with minor repairs within the mission station. Much prayer and fundraising efforts are required to successfully execute our President’s vision for this ministry.  For additional information and to learn more about the YYA Foreign Mission ministry contact your National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc.
