Music Opportunity


At our retreats, we make sure that everyone has a chance to be involved in music. If you would like to be involved in the choir, special music, meeting pianist, or song leader, please visit our get involved page. You are also welcome to play your instruments during the meetings, as well as join in a special time on Friday evening to sing together around the piano. 

Volunteer Opportunity


One of the unique parts of AYM is the youth involvement in meetings. During the weekend, we encourage any youth who would like to participate in song service, scripture, or prayer, to sign up to be a part of the morning and evening meetings. You will also be blessed through talks during the meetings by various young people who are on fire for God.
