NYPD Logo Welcome to the National Youth Department

The Youth Department was founded to guide the energies of the youth, by designing programs and activities that build character, foster individual talents and strengths, to develop and promote leadership skills, and to groom for future church roles and responsibilities.

Our Youth Department is diverse in age (10-35), lending golden opportunities to leave positive indelible marks on many stages and levels of one's life. The Youth Department is a forerunner in engaging young people in various experiences that nurtures their spiritual growth of our faith, and the scriptures; through annual Youth Conferences, rap sessions, artistic expression, community services, and much more that balances the spiritual and natural; making for a well-rounded, productive citizen of society.

NYPD Market is now TrueNorth by CLJC!

"Because Only God Is Truly North of Us."

You've been there with us since the beginning. We were NYPD Market and, now after careful consideration, it was decided to reconsider our market name for branding purposes and to something that truly represented our youth of today.

TrueNorth was born out of the realization that our youth are constantly striving to be better, ever onward and upward. Our market needed to reflect that and the fact that there are no limitations with God. For He is the one and only that is Truly North of Us all.

Welcome to the New.
