YOUTH AND YOUNG ADULT MINISTRIES

OUR MISSION

The Pennsylvania Conference is committed to providing young people with opportunities to grow in their relationship with Christ and providing training so young people can serve God with their unique gifts and abilities through ministries like staffing our summer camp program and Pennsylvania Youth Challenge. We desire to see our youth become an army of workers, impacting Pennsylvania and the world, as Ellen White describes in Counsels to Teachers, Parents, and Students, (p. 555), With such an army of workers as our youth, rightly trained, might furnish, how soon the message of a crucified, risen, and soon-coming Saviour might be carried to the whole world! How soon might the end come–the end of suffering and sorrow and sin! How soon, in place of a possession here, with its blight of sin and pain, our children might receive their inheritance where “the righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein forever”; where “the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick,” and “the voice of weeping shall be no more heard.”

Vision:  TMI – “Total Member Involvement”

Daughter of the King Teen Conference
In a world full of labels and pressures to “belong,” it’s easy to lose sight of who you are. Some days you just wish you were someone else. Join Erica Jones, Assistant Director for the North American Division Women’s Ministries, as we talk about where our true identity comes from, why it matters, and why there’s no one else in the world you should wish to be.

November 10, 2018

Blue Mountain Academy | Hamburg, PA

Moms, youth leaders & adult friends are invited to come along with their girls and join Tamyra Horst for morning & afternoon sessions exploring the crazy teenage years. Discover why eye rolling, tears, anger, and distance can be healthy, necessary and natural. We’ll look at ways to engage your daughter in constructive ways and even embrace the journey through seven stages to adulthood.
