Gwendolyn G. Young
Prolific Bible Teacher & Preacher
Gwendolyn G. Young is a prolific teacher and preacher of the Word of God. She was the principal for a Christian elementary school, the Dean and an instructor for the Bible Institute and currently serves as an Assistant Pastor of her church, Richmond Christian Center in Richmond, VA.

“My greatest desire is to see people live victoriously by entering into relationship with God through His Word. It is not enough to memorize Scriptures, though that is fundamental. More importantly, one must come to know Jesus, who is the incarnate Word of God. Most people have a genuine desire and long for an intimate relationship with God. Yet, few know how to obtain, or enter into, such a relationship. That’s why I pray, ‘Lord, love your people through me’. I want people to know Him and His way of doing things.”
Knowledge of God's Glory
Gwendolyn Young Ministries (GYM) was established to support the ministry call of Gwendolyn G. Young to teach the good news of God’s glory to a lost and dying world. “But [the time is coming when] the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea” (Habakkuk 2:14 [AMP]).
GYM is committed to reaching people throughout the world:
· To transform lives;
· To renew minds; and
· Lead people to higher levels of intimacy with Jesus, the Christ.
GYM is distinctive in its strong word of faith and evangelistic foundation; touching the spirit, mind and body of people. GYM is establishing people in the Truth of God’s Word and, in understanding the power of God’s glory to live victoriously in every way.
Bridge Between God and Man
Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except by (through) Me” (John 14: 6 [AMP]).
Gwendolyn Young Ministries exists to serve as a ‘worldwide bridge’ between man and Jesus, who is the conciliator between God and man.
GYM guides people to God by giving them understanding of:
· Salvation through Jesus;
· Deeper intimacy with God; and
· The person and majesty of the goodness of God, which is His glory through the Word of God.
Establishing a person in the Word is another characteristic of GYM. It leads people to WHOLENESS in all aspects of their lives: spiritually, emotionally and physically. Bible teaching, preaching, seminars, workshops, healing crusades, books and recorded messages are tools that the ministry uses to reach and minister to the world’s populace.
Finally, GYM is developing believers who are sufficiently rooted and grounded in the truth of God’s glory so that they live victoriously and are able to teach others the same principles for victorious living.
Integrity is not limited to doing things right or to honesty, though it includes these; it is soundness, wholeness, being undivided. It is the opposite of hypocrisy, marked by purity in actions and motives. Integrity does not allow private, hidden passions to prevent God from having His way in our lives.
“For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh [craving for sensual gratification] and the lust of the eyes [greedy longings of the mind] and the pride of life [assurance in one’s own resources or in the stability of earthly things]—these do not come from the Father but are from the world [itself]” - I John 2:16 (AMP).
Satan uses these tools to tempt and draw people away from the Father. Yet, we can resist, “For His divine power has bestowed upon us all things that [are requisite and suited] to life and godliness, through the [full, personal] knowledge of Him Who called us by and to His own glory and excellence (virtue)” - II Peter 1:3 (AMP). We can resist fleshly lusts by being financially accountable; the lusts of the eyes by being personally reliable; and, the pride of life by walking in purity in all activities.
Gwendolyn Young Ministries is committed to exemplifying:
· Financial Accountability;
· Personal Reliability;and
· Private Cleanliness (Purity).
