” . . . Become as a little child . . . “


Vision statement: Communing with God, building character, realizing dreams


Mission statement: The mission of Founder’s Youth Ministry is to develop spiritually committed leaders through the teaching and practice of Religious Science.


Founder’s welcomes youth of all ages under the direction of Practitioner Sandra Powell and her visionary adult and teen leaders. Through weekly classes that are available on Sundays at 10:00 am, the young people at Founder’s find endless outlets for expressing their true spiritual natures. With a base of positive mentorship, prayer and Science of Mind principles, young people learn to reach their ultimate potentials in creativity, goal setting, confidence, character and self-esteem building, team projects, community outreach and participation in the Founder’s Church services. Spiritual solutions for today’s youth challenges are emphasized in age – group specific programs.


Tomorrow’s adults are cherished and nurtured in our Founder’s Youth of today! Bring your family - Come join our Youth!







“All Rise Chorus” has become the “Los Angeles Musical Theater Children’s Chorus”


Still under the direction of Jonas Sills, the emphasis will be on preparing for musical theater productions as well as appearing, occasionally at Founder’s services. LAMTCC is an inclusive chorus for youth ages 8-18. The group is under the auspices of Founder’s Community Outreach Corporation, FCOC.
