The Pentecostal Young People's Association (PYPA), the youth wing of IPC, was founded in 1947 by a group of Pentecostal college students from U.C. College, Alwaye and Maharaja's College, Trivandrum.
Their association was influenced by the various cultural and social activities taking place around state where the Pentecostal students would potentially go astray. It was the need of the hour for these students to be associated for the development of social, cultural, and spiritual development of Pentecostal youth. This created ripples throughout the campuses of Kerala and subsequently in midst of Indian Pentecostal community across the world.
All born again youths can become members of this organization guided by this motto. It also implicates the ultimate purpose of spreading Gospel across the world through our service.
Our service is not limited to use our talents, but to leap over the boundaries with love and care that soothes the downtrodden on all fronts. Our conviction of service acts as a medium to join in hands with other Pentecostal youth organizations for His kingdom cause.This determination in past days resulted in an unparalleled growth in the Indian Pentecostal youth community across the Indian states, and in other continents. PYPA is the largest Pentecostal youth movement in Pentecostal community and is still on move by the grace of the Lord.
