Young Professionals Group of Founders MCCLA

The goal of the Young Professionals Group Ministry at Founders MCCLA is to combine social and service events for fellowship, outreach, and service to Founders MCCLA and the LA community for those that define themselves as “Young Professional.”  (There is no age-limit or gender limitation.) 

There will be a minimum of two events per month, one service-oriented (primarily directed toward the LA community at large, to assist with novel experiences and outreach/exposure of Founders MCCLA) and one social-oriented to create friendships and explore the cultural side of Los Angeles.


Participants will have to be cognizant of the type of activity scheduled if they are going to attend (e.g. hiking), to judge their ability to participate physically or monetarily.

There are no events currently planned for this group but there will be soon, so please check back… (note: August 18, 2013)
