The Youth Ministry of the Church of Pentecost was formed in 1996 to offer holistic ministry to the ever- increasing youth of the church. Before that time, previous attempts at mobilizing the youth of the church for fellowship and evangelism had led to the formation of PENSA in the late 1970’s and later the Pentecost Youth and Evangelistic Movement (PENTYEM) in 1991.
Apostle D.K. Noble Atsu led the Youth Ministry from 1996 to 2004 and was succeeded by apostle E.K. Acquah from 2004 to 2011. These two past directors, together with their leadership teams, served creditably with sterling strides in discipleship and evangelism. Currently, the Youth Ministry is operational in all the 48 administrative Areas and in every district of the church in Ghana.
