The mission of the International Young People’s Union is to empower and ensure the natural and spiritual development of young people through innovative ministry for the purpose of growing dynamic Christians.
The International Pentecostal Young People's Union (IPYPU) has come a long way since its conception in 1933. Under the guidance and supervision of our parent organization, the Pentecostal Assembles of the World, Inc., our body of youth, ages 38 and younger, have grown from approximately 400 youth to now more than 8,000 youth and supporters worldwide. Today, we are still united for the purpose of providing specialized programs that promote the message of Christ to other youth around the globe.
