Reverend RoShawne Harrod serves as leader of the Mount Carmel Youth ministry. Mount Carmel hosts Junior Church in the Marsh Fellowship Hall every Sunday and Youth are featured as part of the Divine Worship service every fourth and fifth Sunday. There is a myriad of on-going activities from service events to special trips to lock-ins.
The Youth sponsor several performing arts activities and are integrated into all Mount Carmel ministries from their newly formed performing arts ministry “Carmelites In Action” or “CIA” to the Usher Board.


In 2016, the Mount Carmel Board of Trustees worked with Reverend RoShawne Harrod and Reverend Dr. Joseph Evans to dedicate a special activities room for Mount Carmel’s Youth.
