The Mar Thoma Yuvajana Sakhyam was organized with a view that all the young people in the Church should accept Jesus Christ as their and Lord, and bear witness to His saving power. It was organized in 1933 by a resolution of the Sabha Prathinidhi Mandalam. The first president of the programme was Rev of worship, study, witness and service. Mr. M M Thomas (later Dr. M M Thomas) was appointed as Secretary in 1945 and he was the full time worker of the Sakhyam. Under his dynamic leadership, the Sakhyam struck deep roots and spread its branches far and wide.
The Yuvajana Sakhyam of Detroit MarThoma church meets every second Saturday of the month at the residence or at the Church. We have close to 50 active members. For more information regarding the activities, please contact the Sakhyam secretary.
