The purpose of this department is to:
- Unite women, ages 22–40, of the A. M. E. Zion Church for mission service in the church and community. Among the prime objectives will be social concerns such as child abuse, teenage pregnancies, drug dependency, world hunger, etc.
- Provide an opportunity for the personal and individual Christian growth of members.
- Provide an opportunity for Christian witness through the use of their time, talent, and treasure to support the mission.
- Provide experiences that will enable Young Adult Missionaries to perpetuate the existence and continued growth of the Women’s Home and Overseas Missionary Society, the A. M. E. Zion Church, and the kingdom of God.
