From the Broadway stage to the Yada stage, Allison Allen has been all over and everywhere in between. Gifted in the arts and called to teach, she combines her gifts to bring the Bible alive to every listener. She is so transparent and has been known to “tell it like it is.” Allison has an incredible
connection with women who feel less than others. She speaks the truth in love and God has used her many times as an encourager in the Body of Christ.
Allison's husband Jonathan, who serves as Grace Chapel’s Worship Pastor, will be our guest worship leader. Since joining the staff of Grace Chapel in 1998, Jonathan has been serving and leading the worship community and Grace Chapel to passionately worship the Lord Jesus Christ in spirit and in truth.

Reservations (for 6 or more at a table):
Q. Can I bring my older children to Yada?
A. Yada is a ministry FOR WOMEN. We love children and provide a free nursery for 10 and under, but YADA is a "Ladies' Night Out" and it's for women 18+ and older. We thank you for respecting the age boundaries.
Q. Who is the Yada Prayer Ministry for? I've heard it mentioned several times at the Yada meetings.
A. It's for YOU! While we know that all of us have many people on our prayer lists - the prayer team was set up specifically for prayer request about YOU. You can request prayer for yourself by filling out a prayer card on your table at a Yada night or send a request at yadasisterhood.com anytime.
Q. Is it required that you bring a dish to Yada?
A. Required - NO. Helpful - YES! Our motto is Bring a Dish, Bring a Friend. Our meal is provided by our attendees bringing a dish to share with others. We serve one of the largest buffets around and it's delicious. If however, you are in a situation and unable to bring a dish, we understand. We still want you to come. But for those who can…. Please bring a dish (throwaway containers are acceptable).
Q. Do you HAVE to have a reservation to attend Yada? It seems like most do.
A. NO, absolutely not. However, over time many women have gathered groups of friends to come with them. Sometimes it's hard to walk in and find seats for 6 or 8 together so we allow groups of 6 or more to reserve tables for Yada events. We also always keep unreserved tables for women who do not come in groups. We have a team of "helpers" at the doors to assist everyone in finding a place to sit.
Q. Does it cost to come to Yada?
A. No, it does not. However, we do take donations. Yada is free to every woman who walks through the doors, but it costs quite a bit to put on the events. There is no paid staff. We're a Donations-based Ministry. We appreciate any love offerings! Donate here: http://www.yadasisterhood.com/donate.html
