YCA is an acronym standing for Young Christian Academy. It is the New Testament kind of a house Church which was founded on June 8, 2012 by the conviction of the Holy Spirit through Pastor Heli Aimol, Benjamin Pamei and his wife Moi. YCA Ministries continued to have the fellowship and it is growing day by day. The house church has now grown to the status of a community church with all regular activities. No one is constrained to join or enticed to come along. However, we do invite our friends and colleagues especially the youngsters and miraculously at their own free will they all join hands and the lives of many youngsters have been impacted through the radical teaching of the Gospel of Grace and thus sometimes we also called YCA as “Yonder Calling All to Jesus”. Only the radical preaching of His Grace brings hope to believers as well as non-believers. We emphasized only to the finished work of Jesus on the cross, the devil hates the gospel of Grace because it causes the believers to live the victorious life.
The Young Christian Academy (YCA) is a non-profit organization solely for young people, who are determined and dedicated to serve the confused and strayed young people in this perplexed and despondent age and to guide them to God and thus become useful citizens through activities, both spiritual and secular. The YCA seeks to bring young people to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christian and establish right relationship with God through involvement in various items of interest and activities such as games, music, crafts, vocational camps, Bible studies and Christian works.
The moral problems of working in corrupt societies are so great that the answer cannot be discovered by isolated individuals themselves. Our goal therefore, is revolutionizing individuals through helping them discover and obey God’s will for them at home, in the schools are colleges in such a way that they will finds concrete solutions in their lives, in relation to world problems and to give themselves and their time in order to be able to understand other’s needs.
We believe every man and woman must have some personal involvement in the missionary work and purpose of God. It is right for us to begin this endeavour with our own Jerusalem i.e. our own community. However, we must not stop with this but extend it to Judea, our country and even to the uttermost part of the earth-the whole world. The YCA focuses to have a deeper understanding of the neglected or strayed youths of the day and initiated having a clear and full hearted involvement of both Christian and non-Christian youths in this endeavour. The YCA also believes that the only lasting solution to the problems of societies lies in the spiritual revolution of the young people. It also has social concern of Christian living, obedience to Christ’s teaching applied to social action.
There are millions of young people who are confused not knowing what to do and what not to do. As the scripture aptly says in Rom.10:14 & 15 “How shall they call on Him whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without preacher? And how shall they preach, except they are sent?”
YCA is burdened with the tremendous responsibilities that this scripture challenge brings. But, we, in the YCA are short of means. We have nothing except ourselves and our burdens. Nevertheless, we are ready to help others only if God is willing, inspite of our limited ways and means. The YCA is a faith ministry, fully depending on the providence of the Lord through his servants, the believers.
The YCA broadly aims at:-
To achieve these objectives, the YCA endeavours to fulfil the following obligations:
YCA Gospel ministry is a ministry in which we share Christ’s love, passion and for the lost world. Jesus Christ trusted it to us so that we could bring it to others. A gospel-centered church is a mission church with a passion to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to all people. “For God so loved the World and that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life”. (John 3:16)
Our Gospel Ministry has been sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to many people, including children and we also have seen many people transformed their lives because of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We are not ashamed, because the Word of God encourages us not to be ashamed of the gospel of Christ, because it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek”. (Romans. 1:16). God wants everyone should believe in Jesus and be saved and therefore, we believe that the only Gospel of Grace can save everyone those who believe in Jesus name.
The Gospel Ministry has been working for the glory of God in different activities.
One evening as Pastor Heli was on his way to a hospital to pray for one lady, a small boy came at the red light selling a pen. Looking at the boy, he thought “Is this the future of my country where people resort to begging on road? Does this small boy know his creator, his provider, his redeemer? Undoubtedly not! If he knew and believed in God, he would have received God’s provision. But who will direct him in the ways of God?” This incident brought a revelation in Pastor Heli’s heart to start YCA Children Ministry which was later officially named as Good News Club by Mr. Benjamin Pamei.
“Nipper” and “Urchin”, these two words are heart rending because Jesus loved children and said that the kingdom of God belongs to the people such as these. Wasn’t a good citizen a child once? Wasn’t a criminal a child once? Then why this difference? The Bible says, “Train up a child in a way he should go?” It says “A child” not “the child”. This means we are responsible to train up children in the way they should go. Hence we endeavour to commit our life to the holistic development of children, irrespective of cast, creed and religion.
A child is like a young plant that needs plenty care and concern to grow to its fullness and bear good fruits. It needs congenial environment, good nourishment, lots of caring, pruning and shaping. Millions of children in India are on streets, in slums. They have no food to eat and if at all they have food it is not balanced diet. As a result they are malnourished which causes their physical problems like poor eyesight, skin problems, retardation of brain, improper physical growth etc.
Due to the lack of education the children grow in a society that doesn’t care for hygiene e.g. Sanitation, prevention from decease causing insects and parasites. Their livings conditions are unclean, eating habits are unhygienic. Hence a lot of epidemics spread around. Because of unavailability of immediate medical care the physical ailments are ignored at the initial stages and due to the lack of knowledge available medical facilities are considered of no values. This results into serious physical disorders like polio, night blindness, myopia etc. If not cared for, many of these children are taken into antisocial activities by mafias like beggar’s band, thieves, pick pockets, lifters and furthermore criminals.
What is our responsibility towards them? Jesus said, “But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to stumble, it is better for him that a heavy millstone be hung around his neck, and that he be drowned in the depth of the sea”. (Matt.18:6). Are we to cause them and stumble or are we to save them from stumbling. Today’s child is the future of the nation!
MOTTO: “Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it”. (Prov.22:6)
Good News Club for all children, where we teach them Bible stories, hygiene, social responsibility and moral laws thereby penetrating their families and society.
These activities need a lot of manpower and as per the labour law we do not have finances to keep workers. Hence we seek helpers who are of one mind with us and committed to the vision.
Our primary purpose is to teach the love of God.
Dear beloved, this is God’s ministry-not ours, let’s reflect on these thoughts of the Apostle Paul concerning his ministry:
The first ever Good News Children’s Summer Camp was held at Priya Park,Vasant Vihar, New Delhi. At this Summer Camp hundreds of children came from Kusumpur pahar, Vasant Vihar, Prya Colony, and Vasant Vihar CPWD Colony. The children learnt about the names and Characters of God and Biblical attitude towards suffering, obedience and the blessing from the story of Joseph that is in the book of Genesis. The teacher and guides were from Child Evangelism, real experts on child welfare and education. Their main emphasis was on the character of Joseph who emphasized the magnanimity of his faith and integrity of his godly character. By God’s grace and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit it was a great success. Children were delighted, exhilarated and were engrossed as if they were at their own homes.
Welcome to YCA Home Ministry.
YCA Home Ministry is one of the most important tools of Gospel Fellowship.
In Acts 2:42 we read that one of the four things the early church devoted itself to was “fellowship.” Fellowship was a very important part of their reason for meeting together. It was one of their objectives. But what is fellowship?
We often hear people talking about fellowship. We hear it said that what we need is more fellowship. But our modern ideas of fellowship have become so watered down that the word no longer carries the same meaning it did in New Testament times.
We are not surprised that the early church devoted itself to “the apostles’ teaching” and also “to prayer.” Apart from the ministry of the Holy Spirit, these are the two most important means of growth, power, and effectiveness in the Christian life and this is very important in our daily life.
If you want to grow in the Word of God and live intimate relationship with Him, then our Home Ministry is the right place for you. We are open for friendship, feel free to step in any of the address mentioned below and experience His tangible presence.
Life is not meant to be lived alone. In fact, God hates loneliness. You were created to experience life with other people, and that’s why at YCA Gospel Fellowship we encourage you to get into a small group of Fellowship. A small group is a group of three or more people who gather each week in a home and different places. In a group you’ll share, study the Word, and pray together. No matter where you are in life, there’s a group for you.
