Who are we?

#passiton "PASS IT ON" is our motto for the Youth Department of the Seventh-day Adventist Church! But what is it that we want to pass on to the younger generation?

Our Aim

“The Advent message to all the world in my generation.”

Our Motto

“The love of Christ compels me.”

Our Mission

“The salvation of youth through Jesus Christ. We understand youth ministry to be that work of the church that is conducted for, with, and by young people.”

Our Pledge

“Loving the Lord Jesus, I promise to take an active part in the work of the Adventist Youth Ministries, doing what I can to help others and to finish the work of the gospel in all the world.”

Upcoming Events

We would be happy to have you join our events every month

01

World Adventurer Day

This event will take place every third Sabbath of May. It is a special day to let our Adventurers enjoy being Adventurers and to show others the blessing they are to our church and our community.

02

Global Youth Day

The vision of GYD is to recapture the reality of Adventist youth as a global movement mobilized for service, contributing to the proclamation of the everlasting gospel and ushering in the second coming of Jesus Christ.

03

World Pathfinder Day

World Pathfinder day is a special Sabbath in which we celebrate what it means to be a Pathfinder. Every year a different theme is chosen and it is a day full of singing, preaching, smiles, and Pathfinder spirit

04

Public Campus Ministry Day

Public Campus Ministry Day is designed to afford young adult SDA students and faculty on these campuses a chance to get together and focus on learning long-term strategies to grow their faith, stay connected with their local church, and share their faith with others.

“General Conference Youth has adopted the “I Will Go” logo of the world church for the next five years. “Like arrows in the hands of a warrior,” (Psalms 127:4) our youth and young adults are designed by God to be sent into the world with the three angels message (Revelation 14:6-12). This urgent and prophetic message lifts up Jesus as the world’s Savior and His free gift of righteous by faith.

We also call upon young people to go and be the “Hands and feet of Jesus” in their local churches, on campuses, in the cities, as well as in the unreached countries of the world! In these trying times, the world need Adventists more than ever! We fervently pray that every Seventh-day Adventist young person from ages 4 to 30 will join the world church in saying “I Will Go!””
