As Wayman Chapel’s first youth pastor, Antjuan “T'Juan” Kimbrough, a remarkable talent with enormous charisma and a positive message, will be guiding over 150 youth at Wayman Ministries. During Sunday worship, community outreach, activities and events throughout the year, T’Juan plans to use music, media, theatre, dance, and life skill classes to inspire Jacksonville’s youth.

The new and inspired worship service is taking place the Sunday at 12:00 P.M. at the West Campus, located at 1176 Labelle Street. In addition, every 4th Sunday of the month, there will also be a 10:00 A.M. service at the South Campus, located at 8855 Sanchez Road. Both campuses are located in Jacksonville, Florida. T’Juan will also offer W.O.W. (Wild Out Wednesday) Bible study every Wednesday at 6:30 P.M., rotating monthly between the two campuses.

Pastor Griffin stated "Our ministry is excited about hiring T’Juan as our ministry's first official Youth Pastor. Our young people are already begging their parents to bring them to church. In an age where churches are finding it more and more difficult to relate to today's youth, young, talented and committed Christians like T'Juan will help the Body of Christ reconnect with our youth. We expect great things to happen in our ministry as a direct result of T'Juan's gift and influence."

As music is the driving force for every young person and although, traditionally, one might only hear Gospel music in church; T'Juan is using his artistry and music background to inspire the youth by incorporating music from all genres, cultures, and ethnic backgrounds. T’Juan wrote and recorded much of the music himself. "My plan for the youth ministry is to build an effective, fruitful environment in which youth and young adults will be able to receive guidance, support, and encouragement through the word of GOD, building a well-respected brand of youth ministry. A ministry that thrives on living a clean toxic-free lifestyle. A ministry of accountability, and belief in the Word of GOD!

We will be known as The Clean League, a prolific group of individuals dedicated to living a toxic free life-style," said T’Juan. He will also be presenting community service opportunities to the youth, in order to keep them accountable and offer them ways to give back to Jacksonville and surrounding communities.

In 2007, T’Juan was discovered as an artist and soon after toured the country with Black Entertainment Television's (BET) Rap It Up team, a team of musicians that raise awareness about HIV/AIDS in the African American community. Through this opportunity, T’Juan poured himself into the youth with a message of hope and abstinence.

T’Juan believes that life was designed to be lived, to live long. Not to be lived to die fast. His motto is “Live Good. Die Right” (#LGDR) and he believes that it is a lifestyle. He says,” I have a conviction to change the fabric of the mindset of the youth in Jacksonville and abroad.”
