MISSION:To Educate, Cultivate, and Disciple
Vision Statement: Our vision is to be a Christ-centered, Spirit-filled body of believers, who hold the Word of God to be the final and absolute authority regarding how we are to live, interact, and govern ourselves in our present society.
Bethel Youth Alive and Multi-Purpose Center (BYAMPC) opened in March of 1995 and is an arm of Bethel Church of God in Christ. The Youth Alive and Multi-Purpose Center has a sincere historical commitment to community building and partnering both through its stand- alone efforts and its willingness to partner and work with other organizations that have similar visions.
In 2003, as a direct outgrowth of BYAMPC partnership with Thomas Jefferson area Food Bank, the Center was able to open its site as a USDA food distribution facility servicing the families of Fifeville and surrounding communities. On average five members of Bethel Church of God in Christ volunteered their services to support this program. Presently the program's sustainability is being challenged because of the lack of volunteer support and as a result the food distribution occurs once a month on the 1st Friday from the hours of 12:00 - 2:00 p.m. Anyone needing food assistance beyond this time can contact our office.
Our aim is to provide activities that provide "at risk" youth with constructive uses of their time and energy. In addition to the utilization of on-site staff members, partnerships have been formed with the Charlottesville public school system, The Fifeville community members and students and professors from the University of Virginia in an effort to achieve the objectives and goals of the Center's programs and to advance the cause for the development of the "whole person" within youth.
