Pastor and First Lady Rodney and Zena Young have been happily married for twenty- four years. Early in their ministry, the Youngs developed a heart for marriages, which spawned events and conferences geared toward developing healthy marriages including marriage seminars, banquets and teaching series. The “When a Man Loves a Woman,” and “When the Thrill is Gone,” are two of the most popular conferences and seminars climaxing in mass vow renewals whenever the conferences are held. Because the Young's believe marriages to be the foundation of families and families to be the foundation of healthy churches, biblical based teaching that teaches the mechanics of successful marriage is an essential aspect of their ministry. Together they have three adult children and two grandchildren as well as countless spiritual sons and daughters birthed through twenty- eight years of ministry; twenty of which were spent with Elder Young as pastor.
