YMT HISTORY

OUR STORY

Young’s Chapel CME Church, which many called "Cotton Street Church" was organized and built in 1916 under the leadership of the late Reverend Young. The members were small in number, but large in Spirit. The building, during this time, was a one-room structure facing Cotton Street.  Many pastors served faithfully during the years that followed. Through the dedication of the members, the Sunday School annex was added in 1954.

 

Under the leadership of Reverend J. N. Leverette, the sanctuary was rebuilt in 1956 to face State Street in Raleigh, North Carolina.  The Missionary Society of the North Carolina Conference donated the stain glass windows, which were dedicated in honor of the Missionary Society Presidents in the Carolina Conference.  During the dedication of the stained glass windows, the church’s name was changed to Young Missionary Temple CME Church.

 

On March 8, 1998, the church moved to its current edifice located at 2901 Sanderford Road, Raleigh, North Carolina.  On July 23, 2010, Reverend Ronald L. White, Sr. became the 36th pastor of our church.  He has birthed several new ministries; and the congregation is excited about his vision for the future.
