The Youth House
The Youth House Ministries is a group made up of young people in and around the Lehigh Valley. The Youth House is led by a group of well experienced leaders who are passionate for the development of our young people through the Word of God as well as teaching them skills to achieve greatness in today’s society and within their homes.

Here at 3rd Day Worship Center our mission statement is “Leading Children into a growing relationship with Christ”.
Mark 16:15 “And He said to them, Go into all the world and preach and publish openly the good news (the Gospel) to every creature (of the whole human race)”.
Vision and Goals
Our Ministry will provide an environment that guides kids to lasting relationship with God.
We seek to minister to the whole child. Each child needs to be feed physically, mentally, socially, emotionally and spiritually, knowing that each child is unique and that God has gifted them in different ways. We will provide age appropriate bible studies and activities for the kids at their biblical learning level.
Our goal is to create an environment in which children are encouraged to pursue a friendship with God. Understanding their God-given gifts and begin to us them so may go out with power and authority of Jesus and show the light to others.
Understanding the parents have their responsibility to teach their children God’s word we seek to partner with parents on this journey. We want kids living scriptures not just learning. In James 1:22 the bible says “Be doers of the word not hearer only, deceiving yourselves.”
Children’s Ministry meet every Wednesday night for Bible study starting at 7pm ages from 3-12 and every Sunday at 10:00am for English Service and 12:30pm for Spanish Service Ages 1-12 (*classes are taught in English however if translator is needed it can be provided)
3rd Day Worship Center’s Outreach Ministry actively seeks to be the hands, feet, eyes, mouth, and ears outside the four walls of their weekly services…
As Former President of the Board of Directors for the Lehigh County Conference of Churches, Pastor Charles Olmeda has heard and seen first-hand the needs that affect our city on a daily basis. “The church – the body of Christ – must understand that the only way to truly demonstrate the love, passion, and forgiveness of Jesus Christ to a hurting world is to actively go beyond the four walls of Sunday worship and proactively serve as a conduit of hope,” says Pastor Charles. “Sunday worship and weekly activities are wonderful and certainly essential to the vitality of the ‘body,’ but we can’t always wait for them to come to us, we have to go to them.”
The men of 3rd Worship Center will consistently honor the Lord Jesus Christ in all areas of their lives. We exist to develop Biblically-grounded men of faith who:
- Lead their families in worship
- Explore the Word of God in study
- Reach out to men in the community with the Gospel
- Help hold other men accountable to God’s standards
“Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong. And do everything with love.” 1 Corinthians 16:13-14
Activities and events throughout the year engage men in fellowship and strengthen them to commit to the aforementioned calling of God over their lives.
If you have questions regarding the men’s ministry at 3rd Day Worship Center, please feel free to contact any member of the men’s leadership team: Willie Ruiz, Gino Santana, Mark Willis, or Alexander Oquendo by calling the church office or inquiring at the information center outside our main sanctuary.
Third Day Worship Center’s Women’s Ministry is a Christ Centered “Real” Relationships Ministry that serves to encourage, empower, inspire and challenge Women of all generations and walks of life. We exist to encourage one another in our relationships, spiritual journey and personal growth. Our goal is to provide a safe place where women will feel accepted, loved, and equipped as we pursue a passionate and growing relationship with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. We believe that together we can accomplish more as we walk this journey together towards becoming fit and healthy in our body, mind, and soul. We have all been destined for greatest, so why not come together as friends and sisters in Christ. Together, we can accomplish more!
Ruach Elohim (Breath of God), the 3rd Day Worship Center’s dance ministry is to praise and worship the Lord through the God-given gift of dance. We wish to touch the lives of people in such a way to bring about “real” change, encouragement and/or conversion in their lives. We are dedicated to worshipping the Lord through the art of dance. We seek to glorify God in all aspects of our lives and praise dancing is another way in which we desire to please God. Psalms 150:4 says, “Praise Him with the timbrel and dance…”
We seek to minister to the body of Christ; the saved and unsaved, anyone with a burden and those who are joyful and thankful! With an offering of praise; we invite the Holy Spirit to not only inhabit us but to rain over all those watching and ignite through His Holy Spirit and Power, the recognition that Christ is the answer and hope for our lives. We also desire to offer those who may or may not have dance experience; the opportunity to minister and praise God through the art of dance.
The security ministry is a group of volunteer “guardians” (1 Chronicles 9:22-23) who are designated to provide safety and security to those who worship our LORD Jesus Christ at 3rd Day Worship Center; among them police officers, retired detectives, security personnel.
- To provide Safety and Security for all who worship at 3rd Day Worship Center
- To provide On-call medical services and emergencies
The Safety and Security Team is made up of dedicated men and women that have a heart and passion for the safety and security of all those that visit or attend 3rd Day Worship Center. We are currently looking for new members with medical experience to serve as a medical volunteer, and also, security volunteers. You do not need to have a ‘security’ or Military background to serve on the security team—training will be provided for facility safety, weather emergency reactions, fire, and security.
Our job is to have a heart for God’s eyes for video and an ear for sound
We know that faith comes from hearing and believe that spoken word and song are two of the most important tools for a church service. It is our goal as a media team to provide clear and intelligible sound that is transparent and distraction-free to the listener. The goal of the church audio team is to provide audio that is worthy of the worship of Jesus Christ.
This goal is best accomplished by ministering to the technical, physical, and spiritual needs of those who have entrusted God’s Word to us (those ministering to the congregation) so that we can impart that message to the hearts and ears of the Body of Christ. When someone speaks, prays, or sings the Word of God, it flows through our system. Everything flows through us and flows out from us. If we’re not on top of our game for any time during that hour, it affects the entire service. We believe that the position of sound /video operator is an important mission of the church. We believe that equipping our media team with proper training, equipment and communication skills we can achieve our mission.
We believe that the position of the sound and video operator is an important mission of the church. We will revere the mission by giving the position respect, priority and our personal best, be on time, interact with people, not just so that we can make them sound good and look good, but so that people can worship God and stay attentive and focused on the activities of the service.
