Carmen Jones (Director), Reverend Veronica Johnson (Youth Pastor), Mamie Stelly and Michelle Maxwell are the leaders of the Y.P.D. Ministry. The Young People and Children’s Division (Y.P.D.) is a youth organization that was established in October of 1915. It was established as an auspice to the Women’s Missionary Society of the African American Methodist Episcopal Church. The Young People and Children’s Division (Y.P.D.) chose the colors forest green and white for the organization’s colors. Forest Green was chosen as it is a symbolic reference to growth and Christian vitality. White was integrated because it represents purity, light, and faith. The Y.P.D. Ministry motto is, “Grow, Glow, and Go for Christ.” Young People and Children’s division follows a unique age group structure.
