"The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound" - Isaiah 61:1
Over the past 38 years, Pentecostal Youth Fellowship of America (PYFA), a non-profit Christian organization has sought to encourage and empower youths for the ministry and leadership roles of tomorrow. Founded in 1981 by a handful of youth leaders who had a vision to create an organization to bring the youth of our Indian community together, it has grown into a ministry that now serves over 40 churches in the greater New York region. PYFA serves more than 2,500 youth and adults in their spiritual journey to reach their God given potential through retreats, missions, talent development, conferences, and athletics. In addition, it provides a venue for fellowship among believers. This organization has helped many young people develop into mighty men and women of God who are being used by the Lord in various capacities in His vineyard and have dedicated their lives to His service. With the guidance of God and the direction of his laborers, PYFA continues to inspire and challenge youths for the advancement of the Kingdom of God. PYFA is built on the foundation of the leadership of past officials.
