Anthem Student Ministries

At Saginaw Valley United, we value the next generation.  A relationship with God is so important during some of the most crucial years of a young person's life. We stress the importance of our students knowing they are appreciated and valued. 

Ages 12-18

Youth Pastors:  Kyle & Janessa Thayer


Hyphen seeks to connect 18-35 year olds to serve with purpose, for a mission… to bridge the gap between our young people and our middle aged adults/senior saints.  The Church does not need Apostolic Millennials who are living with one foot in the church and one foot out the door.  The Church needs Apostolic Hyphens with one hand tightly clutching Truth and another hand in the world grasping for the lost!  Our goal is for young adults around the world to realize they were created for a God-given mission to “Be A Hyphen”.

I Am Global Missions


The objective of the United Pentecostal Church International (UPCI) in organizing Global Missions is to proclaim the whole gospel to the whole world by sending forth God-called men and women in obedience to the great commission.  "Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature" (Mark 16:15).  

Global Missions exists to take the "whole gospel to the whole world, by the whole church".  Our mission is that every tribe and nation will know the name of Jesus.
