Album Notes
Young People for Christ Association ("YPC") was created in 1995 as an organization designed to improve the talents of young gospel musicians and their youth gospel choirs in Northeast. The association's founder, Donald LaRoche, wanted to create an environment where these young talented people could come together and learn from some of the finest musicians and choir directors in the gospel music world, like Pr. Butch Heyward of the Institutional Church of God in Christ in Brooklyn, NY.

Thomas Hammond, renowned keyboardist from Portland, OR. and Melvin Crispell, the music director for "James Hall and Worship and Praise." Ultimately, YPC would take what they learned from these anointed men and present their first project "Pressing Toward the Mark" a live recording in Washington D.C. The selections on this album come in two different languages and various composers such as Pr. Butch Heyward, who has written over 300 gospel songs and young people within YPC.


to write a review

I really enjoyed the new CD from YPC, yet my favorite
song of all on the CD,
is "When I think Of the goodness..." Miss Mauve.

wonderful, rich, superb, excellent
good job well done. keep your eyes on the price,
as you are pressing toward the mark. hadassah


This CD was great I especially loved the soloist on track #3 she is on her way to the top. Move over Love Fellowship choir YPC Convention choir is about to blow up.

in a word "Impactful"
I especially enjoyed track# 5. The melodic rhythmic beat of this song is powerful. As much as I like the words in our native language, my only suggestion is that it be translated in english and shared w/ others. To reiterate--"Impactful". Thank you for trying to make a difference.
