Young Adults


Alliance Young Adults (AYA) is our young adults' ministry for people ages 18-30. Transitioning into adulthood is a whirlwind, and so many of us are on different journeys. We exist to journey with people through life stages, challenges, and spiritual growth. Life is messy and confusing, but we know Jesus is our constant companion, so let’s create a community that always points each other to Him.
