Turner Chapel’s Young Adult ministry is called Echelon. The purpose of Echelon is to extend support, encouragement, and Biblical teaching to young adults, ages 18-38. Echelon strives to offer young adults the opportunity to serve at church and in the community. Echelon offers a variety of ministries and activities that focus on fellowship, worship, service, evangelism and discipleship. Echelon gives young adult believers the chance to connect with one another and strives to give them the opportunity to grow in their relationship with the Lord by being involved in ministry and utilizing their authentic gifts and talents. “Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity.” -Hebrews 6:1A
