“Growing Young: Six Essential Strategies to Help Young People Discover and Love Your Church”
“Churches are both shrinking and aging as more young people disengage. Based on groundbreaking research with over 250 of the nation’s leading congregations, Growing Young provides a strategy any church can use to involve and retain young people. It profiles innovative churches engaging 15- to 29-year-olds that are growing–spiritually, emotionally, missionally, and numerically. Packed with ideas, Growing Young shows ministry leaders how to position their churches to reach younger generations in a way that breathes life into the whole church.”
Thats why the North American Division Youth Ministries Department has created an amazing initiative called “Growing Young Adventist.”
“Growing Young Adventists is a learning journey for local churches and leaders helping to build faith communities that will not only survive, but thrive in the years ahead. It is an inter-generational movement nurturing relationship building and cultural transformation that embraces young people and benefits all generations in the Adventist church.” #GYA #GrowingYoungAdventists

Pathfinder Winter Retreat
Our Theme for Winter Retreat this year is “C.S.I.” (Christian Scripture Investigation). 2 Timothy 3:16-17 says “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” We are encouraging our Pathfinders to search the scriptures diligently, God wants them to be fully equipped with the knowledge of His Word!

ShareHim South Africa Evangelism Trip
The Alberta Conference Youth Department has been offered the opportunity to partner with ShareHim in taking Youth and Young Adult Volunteers to South Africa for an Evangelism trip from May 7 to 23, 2018. I believe this will be a great opportunity for our Youth and Young Adults, and specifically our Adventist Students that attend public universities and colleges here in Alberta and Northwest Territories. The experience gained on such a trip as this can prove to be very beneficial to these young people in particular, as they would gain experience that can be used on the mission fields in which they socialize on a daily basis, study, and live – the college and university campus and work places . . .

Global Youth Day 2018
The vision of Global Youth Day (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. There is a lot more to religious faith than simply going to church and listening to sermons. The true practice of religion involves the revelation of God’s love in living out Jesus’s gospel commission as He bade us to before He ascended to heaven: through all manners of selfless acts that point a desperately needy world to the ultimate hope of the better world He has made possible for us. Grounded in the concluding words of Jesus in the parable of the Good Samaritan, “Go and do likewise” (Luke 10:25-37), the theme of the Global Youth Day is “Be the sermon.” READ MORE HERE
