What is Hyphen Ministry?

Hyphen ministry is focused on reaching young adults ages 18-30. Those involved in hyphen ministry will receive opportunities to minister to others, make connections, and grow closer to God. Our mission at Praise Tabernacle is to create an environment where those engaged in college and career can have an open, comfortable environment to share hopes, dreams, inspiration, and moments with God and others.
