Our goal is to spread the "Good News" of Jesus Christ beyond the walls of the church, to assist those in need, and to enhance the spiritual life of the congregation. The power of the Holy Spirit and the words of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ are the driving force behind our ministry. Mark 12:28-31 states:
Then one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, perceiving[a] that He had answered them well, asked Him, “Which is the first commandment of all?”
Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first commandment. And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.”
The mission of the Food Bank is to provide food baskets to our church members to ensure that no one goes hungry. Sadly, hunger remains a serious problem in Southeastern Raleigh, and there are numerous families struggling each day to provide food for their families.
Our food bank will provide monthly and emergency food distribution. Monthly distributions will occur on the fourth Saturday of each month between the hours of 7:00 am and 9:00 am.
The food is being donated by the saints of YMT and other donors. We are truly thankful for them and their donations. We accept donations of non-perishable items, and monetary donations are always welcome. Our projected goal is to include a bread ministry in the near future.
Hospital and Home Visits
The purpose of these visits is to encourage, support, and offer prayers to those that are home- and hospital-bound.
"The effective and fervent prayers of the righteous availeth much" James 5:16
Capital Nursing and Rehabilitation Center

Cary Health and Rehabilitation Center
One-on-one teaching provided to a specifically-identified resident supported by biblical principles through the knowledge and guidance of the activity director. At this time, visits occur every Tuesday and Thursday of each month. This is a newly formed ministry.
Roanoke Commons Apartments
Bible Study is conducted by Rev. McAllister and is held at 11:00 a.m. each Monday after the first and third Sunday.
As a Christian, the knowledge of the Word makes a difference in a shallow faith and a life of trust and obedience. Our intimacy with the Word develops as we dedicate our lives to reading, personal and communal study on a regular basis.
We learn how to examine ourselves, apply the Word to our daily living and learn how the Word should impact our daily challenges. Our hope is to spread the Word of God.

HIV - AIDS Ministry
This ministry is in the planning stage. HIV is a pandemic plaguing the African-American community. There needs to be greater awareness of the signs and symptoms, testing, and prevention of HIV and AIDS, it is a social concern. There must be more church involvement!
