The most important group of people in the church are our children and young adults. We believe we have a sacred responsibility to provide an environment where young people can grow up learning about Jesus Christ and how to have a relationship with Him.

Who We Are

The Adventist Youth Society works for, with and through the young. The youth are lead to Christ and trained for the Lord’s work.

Mission Statement

Youth Ministries exists to nurture the spiritual growth of children by providing opportunities that will lead children to Jesus and disciple them in their daily walk with Him. To accomplish this goal, Youth Ministries offers a variety of programs that allow children to actively participate, explore and learn while being drawn into a loving, serving relationship with Jesus. Consider enrolling your child or participating in AYS, Adventurers, or Pathfinders.
