Let No Man Despise Thy Youth (I Timothy 4:12)
A Congress is a representative group that meets together to take action for their generation. The Alabama Youth Congress has been designed to gather young people from across our state to seek the Lord for revival in their churches and throughout Alabama. During AYC the young people are challenged to be “steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord.”
Sponsored by the Birmingham Area Independent Baptist Churches (BIBF)
