Opening Ceremony 2023

After nearly 3 years of lockdown, the Haitian Youth Federation is back for In-Person Experiences. Join us on January 21, 2023 for a Haitian Youth Federation (HYFAEC) reboot in Philadelphia, PA. Come reunite with old friends and make some new ones. We’ll have our talented praise teams leading us in an amazing worship experience, discussions around current social and spiritual challenges. We’ll have something for all generations of youth, and of course, good Haitian Food!

Pastor Patrick Graham, the Director of Youth Ministries for the conference will deliver an inspirational sermon that will reignite our fire and passion for Gods mission for us young people, who will usher in the 2nd coming of Jesus!


Our theme: “It’s Giving Seen, Saved & Set Apart!”

We’re in this world, but not of it!

It's Giving Seen Saved Set Apart

But you are chosen people. You are the King’s priests. You are a holy nation. You are a nation that belongs to God alone. God chose you to tell about the wonderful things he has done. He called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. At one time you were not God’s people. But now you are his people. In the past you had never received mercy. But now you have received God’s mercy.

1 Peter 2:9-10
