New NAD Young Adult Initiative  

Growing Young Adventists


“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.”

That’s 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

Mission Trip 2019

 

 

The Alberta Conference Youth Department has been afforded with the amazing opportunity to take Youth and Young Adult Volunteers to Palawan, Philippines for a Mission trip from April 29 to May 15, 2019.

I believe this will be a great opportunity for our Youth and Young Adults. You don’t want to miss this amazing opportunity!!

The cost is only $2499. This includes flight, food, transportation and accommodation.

Our mission will focus on building a church for the local Seventh-day Adventist community.  There will also be an evangelistic series being conducted during the mission trip, along with children’s VBS and a Basketball workshop.

Our off site excursion will take us to the famous Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park.

The experience gained on such a trip as this can prove to be very beneficial to young people in particular, as they would gain experience that can be used on the mission fields or wherever they socialize on a daily basis.

Alberta Conference “ACBA” Church Basketball League

 

 

The Alberta Conference Youth Department is excited to announce it’s first ever Church Basketball League called “ACBA.”

This creative recreational idea came from one of my youth Ted Merceus.

The “ACBA” church league, will bring together youth from different churches across the province of Alberta.

 
Teams will get to play against each other, learn the value of teamwork and develop character and sportsmanship.
 

The goal of “SBA” is to have fun, develop personal faith in Christ and work on fitness all at the same time.

The plan is to have a total of 20 church teams enter the league and 3 Divisions (North, Central, South).

URBAN MISSIONAL SMALL GROUP

 

My Doctoral Degree in Urban Ministry is coming to an end in 2019.

For my final research project, I am proud to announce “Oikos” an “Urban Missional Small Group”

How do we create a global community of radical inclusion and a deep sense of justice and compassion for others?  A community of 10-15 Urban Millennials who are mission minded, seeking to create transformational change, while looking at how to make their faith relevant in postmodern urban culture.  We will be taking a look at what it means to be Christian in the 21st century. Discussion topics include urban culture, community, music, fashion, politics, pop culture and entertainment. (This group is will help provide qualitative data for Doctoral Research on Small Groups)

We meet every Friday at 7:30 PM at the Alberta Conference Office
