Intercultural YAYA Gathering

We live in the multicultural and multifaith society of Canada.

Intercultural and interfaith experience of learning from each other and learning

through differences is crucially important. In this global village of racial, cultural and religious diversity, we provide a variety of programs for those who seriously prepare for the future. So we gather on Thursday for the programs and fellowship,

and, on Sunday, you go back to your own church or faith communities.


Regarding your future, think about following few questions:

What do you want to be at your age of 60?


If you have the picture of yourself, please go ahead...

What do you need to do at your age of 30, 40 and 50?


You are in Canada in the year 2013,

What do you need to do right now?


We try to provide the best program that works for the future.


In God, we are one family, one body!

You are not alone. God is with us.


Please join us,

and journey together for your future world!
