Pasadena Mission Area Youth Ministry. The idea is collaboration at its best in that churches that have the resources help out churches that don’t and broadens the understanding of ministry beyond the confines of an individual congregation to one that occurs among PMA churches at seven campuses. Rev. Allison Mark, the main proponent of this mission project, proposed that pastors and youth workers from PMA churches meet together to lay the ground work for sharing calendars and information about upcoming events and activities so that PMA churches can feed their youth to these activities and events, including: Joint Confirmation program and celebration; Joint PMA youth choir; PMA youth leading worship and taking the worship experience around PMA churches; Gospel hymn sing and revival meetings; special services, e.g. Lent/Easter, etc.
