...I decided to establish the JOY (Just Older Youth) Ministry within our church to make sure that the needs of our “older youth” are always a priority. As you may know, I have appointed St. Akea Daley as the Chair of the JOY Ministry. I am confident that our visions are in sync, and that she has your best interest at heart. St. Akea and her committee have been tasked with making sure that you are well looked after, and that all your needs and concerns are met. Always remember, You are never too young to set a new goal or dream a new dream ~C.S. Lewis. The Joy Ministry is at your service. Keeping you in my prayers.
