Twenties + Thirties Ministry

All In - Romans 6:1

"What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?" - Romans 6:1


The mission of the Twenties + Thirties ministry of the Greater Allen A.M.E. Cathedral of New York is to provide holistic ministry for young adults ages 21-39. We provide holistic ministry through weekly Bible studies that provide spiritual formation in Christ, social events which build a sense of community, outreach opportunities to meet the needs of our community through acts of service and justice. 

Our guiding theme is #ALLIN, which is a shorthand way of noting that the Holy Spirit forms us into a communion of saints who live by divine grace in every area of our lives.

How We Serve Twenties + Thirties:

The Twenties + Thirties Ministry provides three ongoing touchpoints of ministry for young adults throughout the calendar year. These are "on ramps" or easiest pathways to enter into the ministry. 


First Sunday of the Month: You Can Sit With Us!


You Can Sit With Us! is an initiative designed to help twenties + thirties connect more easily with their peers. Theologically, we carry out this practice to convey God's radical hospitality in Christ. Jesus prioritized establishing connections between disciples; we follow his lead by creating an opportunity  for young adults to meet similarly aged individuals striving to live a Spirit-filled life.


On the first Sunday of the month, we reserve a few rows for young adults to sit together on the first floor of the sanctuary. We generally do You Can Sit With Us during the 8:30 and 11:15 services of the first Sunday. You can follow our social media channels, for current information on this initiative.


Weekly Thursday Morning Prayer Call at 7:00 a.m.


Our Twenties + Thirties co-ministers, Rev. Andrew and Min. Gabby Cudjoe-Wilkes, lead a dynamic prayer call every Thursday morning from 7:00 - 7:15 p.m. Our prayer call is a great opportunity to finish the week strong by connecting with God and establishing the spiritual momentum necessary to face the surprises, joy, and challenges of your day.


Weekly Thursday Night Bible Study at 7:30 p.m.


Our ministry provides weekly Bible Study tailored to twenties and thirties on Thursday nights at 7:30 p.m. Bible Study takes place in the Cathedral Chapel. Our Bible studies are generally organized into monthly teaching series and are announced during Sunday worship services and our Twenties + Thirties social media channels on Facebook and Instagram. Previous topics have covered: learning how to pray from the Psalms; a reoccurring relationship series entitled "He Said, She Said"; biblical teaching on how to build a career informed by Christian faith; as well as relevant responses to current affairs such as popular movies, incidents of racial justice, and so on.
