CAYA Experience

CAYA is a radical monthly service geared toward young adults, ages 21-40, focusing on real and relevant issues faced by young adults, struggling with various temptations and becoming consistent in serving the Lord.

It is a place where the saved and unsaved can come together and get it together. Pastor Howard-John Wesley ministers in a creative and transparent way that reaches our lives directly.

#WhatMenWant is our last CAYA of the year and will feature an all male panel. This service is for EVERYONE! 🗣MEN! Have you ever felt like your words or actions were misunderstood? 🗣 LADIES! Have you ever felt like you just don’t understand how men think or how they’re wired? Let’s get down to the bottom of it and we’re going to start by giving them the floor to provide a safe space for us to explore it ALL. Healthy & prosperous relationships and marriage is the goal! It goes down tomorrow night and we hope to see you there!

One in nine fathers, sons, husbands, brothers, partners, and friends will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, including 3,810 men in Maryland this year alone.

Not only will all those men be affected, but our beloved Pastor, Dr. Howard-John Wesley lost his father to this very thing. We have seen the impact it had on him and wanted to do something in honor of the memory of his father, the Rev. Dr. Alvin Wesley.

On Sunday, Sept. 22nd, The CAYA team is participating in the Dr. Sanford J. Siegel Prostate Cancer Run/Walk (part of the ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk series) because we want to help put an end to prostate cancer.

We are excited to be celebrating Pastor Wesley's 11th anniversary with this special gift. Click the link in our bio to join our team or to simply donate! Alfred Street Baptist Church

Our Story

A service that caters to young adults, ages 21-40ish. Come As You Are (CAYA) is a unique worship experience that focuses on the issues, concerns and struggles we encounter daily. While service is relevant for individuals in their twenties and thirties, CAYA is for everyone! Attendees need not be a member of Alfred Street Baptist Church or any other church— simply Come As You Are. Worship and God’s Word come alive with Pastor Wesley, a band and the CAYA Praise Team. Come early for food and fellowship, then stay to nourish your spirit with worship!
