Hyphen The Church does not need Apostolic Millennial's who are living with one foot in the church and one foot out the door. The Church needs Apostolic Hyphens with one hand tightly clutching Truth and another hand in the world grasping for the lost! Our goal is for young adults around the world to realize they were created for a God-given mission to “Be A Hyphen.” The assistance our team provides, through resources and training, is to equip Hyphen leadership with the tools they need to connect Hyphens to service with purpose through resources for a mission.
