New Jersey Mar Thoma Church Yuvajana Sakhyam ( NJMTC - YS ) Sakha was started in the year 2000.  Our Sakha began with a vision that young families can work together to fulfill the vision of the Mar Thoma Church Yuvajana Sakhyam.

Under the guidance of various vicars, our Sakha was able to organize various activities including retreats, charity services and other activities.

Our Sakha won many overall championships in Regional and Diocesan Kalamelas.  We celebrated our 10th anniversary in 2010.

During these years, Almighty God blessed our Sakha in many ways to fulfill the motto of our Sakhyam.

In 2010, we hosted the 12th National Conference, which was one of the most successful conferences in the Diocese.   As a part of our 10th year anniversary, we donated $10,000.00 to the needy in India.

While adjusting with the busy life, the members also find time to visit the sick and the needy people in and out of parish.

Historic Background

Mar Thoma Yuvajana Sakhyam  (MTYS) was formed in 1933 as a result of a resolution of the Sabha Prathinidhi Mandalam.  This Organization was formed with the view that youth of the Church should accept Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord, and bear witness to His powers. The main objectives of the Yuvajana Sakhyam are Worship, Study, Witness and Service.

Jesus said “You are the Light of the World”. Every believer and member of the Mar Thoma Church should take up the responsibility to lighten others and hence our motto – Lighted to Lighten.
